Blevins Middle School

It's All Good in the Neighborhood

Golf

At Blevins, we want every student to have the opportunity to participate in a sport that they enjoy. The Blevins golf club is set up to help students improve their skills and understand the basic game of golf. The golf team is open to boys and girls, and we encourage students to try out regardless of their level of experience. The golf team practices and competes with other PSD schools.

Golf is a cut sport with only ten spots open each season. An informational meeting is held before Spring Break. To determine the ten-person team from the pool of applicants, the team meets with the coach on the practice range to assess and work on basic skills. After that, two rounds of nines holes are played, and the students with the ten lowest scores are selected for the team. Those who make the team will participate in weekly qualifying rounds to see who will play in that match for that week, and the top four players will compete in the weekly matches.

Every athletic participant must have a physical, payment and registration completed at Blevins in order to practice or compete. The physical forms are valid for a year from the examination date. It is advisable to arrange physicals well in advance of the sport in which your student is interested. Please note: Athletic Physical forms are available on the PSD and Blevins websites, or in the Blevins Front Office. Physical forms are not available in the physician’s offices. Golf season runs March 25th through May 10th. More information will be communicated as it becomes available.  First day of practice is Monday, March 25th.  Fee is $105.  Practice takes place at City Park 9. Local golf courses are the site of matches. Plan on attending a Parent Meeting in March.  Please visit the Blevins website page under Athletics, Athletic Policies, Fees and Forms for payment and registration information.

New PSD Athletic Registration Process:

In effort to make the Athletic registration process more convenient for parents and efficient for staff, PSD has launched a new online registration option. The SportsEngine application will allow you to register your child online for any current season sport.  If you choose this method you will still need to fulfill requirements 1, 3, 4 and 5.

Required: – 1) Students who are interested in either sport need to sign-up on the clipboards located in the lunchroom.  This information helps Mrs. Koepp with intent and prep for processing.     

Required: –  2) You must complete an online registration through SportsEngine, or a 2018-19 Middle School  Athletic Participation Permission and Release form and a 2018-19 Student  Athlete Medical  Information form which must be completed, signed and submitted to Mrs. Koepp in Blevins’ Front  Office. If you have already submitted these forms for the 2018-19 school year there is no need to resubmit them.

Required: – 3) You must have a current Middle School Physician Certification of Student Fitness for Athletic Participation on file in the Front Office. This form must be submitted to the Blevins Front Office regardless of which method you chose to register. This certificate is good for 365 days from the date of exam.

Required: - 4) A $105 Athletic fee (per sport) must be paid or waved prior to tryouts or participation. The athletic fee for in-district students is $105 and the fee for home-based, charter, and private school students is $157 per sport. Payments can be made online through SchoolPay or you may submit cash, check or pay with a credit card in the Blevins Front Office. All credit card transactions are charged a transaction fee and that fee is not refundable). If a student qualifies for a waiver, the 2018-19 Permission to Share form must be completed and submitted. These forms can be submitted through your ParentVue account. If your child does not make the final roster for a “cut” sport you will be refunded the $105. Refunds will be issued after rosters are finalized.  

Required: - 5) In order to tryout and participate, All Athletes must submit a Silver Card to the coach. There are No Exceptions. Silver Cards will only be issued to students who meet requirements 2, 3 and 4. Cards are issued by Mrs. Koepp in the Front Office and will be distributed to the athletes on the first day of practice or tryouts.

Students are encouraged to not wait until to register or obtain sports physicals. Last minute submissions could delay the process and may result in your student not be issued a Silver Card until the following day.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Koepp at lkoepp@psdschool.org or 970-488-4003.
