Get involved in a fall sport starting in July

By Lance Melching | Jun 22, 2024 10:22 AM

Fall sports will soon begin, and there are many reasons for your child to get involved: Activities support the school’s academic mission, and students who participate tend to have higher grade-point averages, better attendance records, lower dropout rates and fewer discipline problems. Activities are inherently educational and provide valuable lessons and skills like teamwork, fair play, and hard work. Students learn self-discipline, build self-confidence and develop skills to handle competitive situations. Activities promote mental and physical health and well-being. Participation helps prepare students for success in college, a career and society. The KHSAA dead period begins on June 25 and runs through July 9. During this time, coaches cannot conduct any kind of activities and should not be in communication with you or your child. School facilities and equipment cannot be used during the KHSAA dead period. We are requiring registration through FinalForms for athletics and marching band. We expect all fall athletes to be registered by the start of fall sports on July 15, but all students can register at this time. Registration for the 2024-2025 school year is open now. 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. Many fall sports have been doing conditioning activities, but most fall sports do not officially begin until July 15. Below is information about our fall sports, their coaches, and when they are having tryouts or their first official practice. All practices are at BCHS unless otherwise noted. Please direct any questions to the appropriate coach. We look forward to an exciting school year of Boone County athletics!
