2017-2018 Athletic Physical Paperwork

2017-2018 Athletic Handbook


2017-18 Information

All DeSoto ISD students interested in sports tryouts must have a completed UIL packet, including a completed physical, on file prior to the first practice. 

Note: Physicals and concussion test MUST be completed and turned in prior to participation, in order to allow the training staff adequate time to clear all student athletes to participate. If your athlete has NOT completed the U.I.L. Mandated Concussion Screening Test , they are NOT cleared to participate; therefore, they will NOT be allowed to tryout (Freshman, JV and Varsity). This will affect the athlete’s selection to a team! (The physical MUST be on a DeSoto ISD Physical Form.) All medical forms, with the exception of the physical, can be found online.

Transferring Students

If your child is transferring in from another district, it is mandated by the UIL that he/she is cleared with Previous Athletic Participation Form clearance. you may pick forms up in the athletic office.

DeSoto ISD is proud to have one of the most successful athletic programs in the state.
Each year, Eagle athletes win titles at every level, becoming a mainstay in playoff competition.
