ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

 

Physicals & Online Signatures
All student-athletes MUST have a physical turned in on an IHSAA form (dated after April 1, 2019) prior to officially trying out for a team. The online signature form also needs to be completed.


Program Support Fees

Program Support Fees are $125 (just for $20 for developmental golf / $50 for boys and girls lacrosse). Fees can be paid online or via check (made out to ZCS). If a student is on free/reduced lunch then the fee acts as such (free/$62.50). The fee must be paid prior to the first official competition.

 

All physical and program support fee information can be found on the Athletics (forms) page on the ZMS website.

School-issued locks

Student-athletes need to purchase a school-issued lock for $7 (checks can be made out to ZMS). The lock can be purchased from myself or from our guidance assistants in the front office area. If the student-athlete cannot remember his/her combination to a lock purchased previously, we can look up that information from him/her.

 

 

More information about grade checks and conduct expectations can be found in our school’s handbook!
