By Lance Melching | Sep 28, 2023 3:21 PM


Winter sports will be starting soon. Starting with the 2023-2024 school year, we are requiring registration through FinalForms for athletics and marching band. Once you are registered, the athletics office can upload your existing doctor’s physical exam if it has not expired. You can read more about Final Forms here. Please register at and follow the prompts to create your account, create your student’s account, and sign your forms. If you would like to see the prompts and forms in a language other than English, you may use website translation tools in both Google, FireFox, and other browsers. Before your child can participate, they will need a valid KHSAA physical which requires a doctor's examination. Physicals are valid for one year and 30 days from the date of the doctor’s examination. Some winter sports have been doing conditioning activities, but most winter sports do not officially begin until October 15. Below is information about our winter sports, their coaches, and when they are having tryouts or their first official practice. All practices are at BCHS unless otherwise noted.
