Athletics Update 3/11/21 

 

There is a lot of information about upcoming Sports and we are sending this email to help clarify what we can for the time being - Please read ALL of the following information carefully to see where your sport of choice is at in our planning/starting stages and what you need to do to play a sport. We will continue to update you as information becomes available to us. Again please read ALL of the following information.

ALL Athletes must have a completed athletics packet (including a physical) on SportsNet. I am attaching the physical form on this email. You will need to download it and take it to your doctor or clinic for a physical.

- Here is the link for the packet https://sportsnethost.com/independencehs-parent
- if you do not have an account you will need to make one
- if you made one previously then you will need to login and update your information.
- you must upload your physical to complete the packet

ALL sports will have a roster limit and a tryout process so please be prepared to be at practice on the first day that it begins so that you have an equal opportunity for a roster spot.

Athletes will have to choose their sport for tryouts - if you try out for a sport this week (March 15th) and don't make a team then you can tryout for one of the indoor sports. Rosters will be set for all other sports after tryouts happen and you will not be able to go to another team. Please consider your choice of sport carefully.

Parents you may call the Athletics Office M-F from 10-4 if you have any questions that have not been answered by this email. Students please make sure that you are calling between 1-4 as to not interrupt your class time. You may also ask via reply to this email, please allow 24 hours for a reply.

We hope that this has provided you the information need and we are looking forward to having our student athletes back on campus.

 

 

Athletic Sportsnet Account  - MANDATORY

  • All students interested in participating in an Independence High School sport must complete a Sportsnet account and a physical exam from your primary family physician. Please go to … https://sportsnethost.com/independencehs-parent to create an online account for your student. You can upload your student’s physical exam directly into your SportsNet account. If for some reason you are unable to upload a physical exam online you can turn it into the Athletics office prior to your student participating in a sport. (Do not turn in sports physicals to a coach, they must be uploaded or turned in to the Athletics office to be cleared). 

 

  • Please Note: Sports Physicals are valid for only one school year and you must also update your Sportsnet account each year that your student participates in athletics at Independence High School.

From your Dean of Athletics!

 

On behalf of Independence High School Athletics, I would like to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 Falcon Sports Year.  Here at Independence, it is our hope to provide a fun, exciting, and competitive atmosphere to allow our students to compete in the sports they love.

 

Given the current circumstances regarding Kern Country and the current pandemic, athletics has been postponed. Fall sports – Football, Volleyball, and Cross Country are now expected to begin practice in December if things improve. All other sports will take place during the 2nd semester after the winter break. 

 

As always, we are very excited about our sports programs and our student-athletes at IHS.  We have many programs that will be looking to make a run for a CIF Central Section Championship this school year.  In the 12 years that our school has been open, our student-athletes have brought home 12 CIF Central Section titles across a variety of sports.  We look forward to continued success!  

 

We would like to thank you for your support of our student-athletes here at Independence, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our many athletic events when they resume.

 

Go Falcons!

 

- Mr. LaRosa
