Message from the Athletic Director
Welcome to the TRIBE, the home of the Holy Cross Indians.
The benefits of participating in high school athletics are immediate and enduring. Holy Cross athletics offers a variety of co-curricular athletic activities. Our administrators, coaches, teachers, and boosters are committed to developing a well-rounded STUDENT-athlete. The students involved in our programs are guided toward learning valuable lessons through sports that will promote success in life. We strive to give opportunities to all willing to work hard, sacrifice for the team, and support the Holy Cross tradition of excellence.
You, as a Holy Cross Student-Athlete, are expected to demonstrate pride in yourself as a student, an athlete, and as a member of the Holy Cross Community at large. Our athletes are considered ambassadors of Holy Cross High School.
Parents of Holy Cross Athletes are commended for their support and for embracing the idea that you are the first role models to our student athletes. Your examples of high standards of sportsmanship, expectations of academic excellence and respect for administration and coaches have an immeasurable impact. This is the Holy Cross Way. This is the Holy Cross Tradition.

**ALL ATHLETES MUST HAVE A CURRENT PHYSICAL BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN ANY SPORT.**
** HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES WILL PAY A ONE TIME ANNUAL FEE OF $150.00 DUE BEFORE A UNIFORM IS GIVEN.**
We will be using the program FINALFORMS to help streamline our required forms and signatures required to keep our school compliant. Please read the information on how to register your student.
Those who have already turned in their current PHYSICAL will have their paper form uploaded. Going forward, this will be a process for the students, parents, or guardians.
In addition, please read the STUDENT ATHLETIC HANDBOOK. You will need to sign within the FINALFORMS program that you have read the expectations.
It is our hope this will help our families, teachers, coaches, athletic trainer, and administration.
Thank you for your help in completing the process.
YOU MAY SEND IN A CHECK: Payable to Holy Cross High School Athletics and WRITE student athletes name and sport.
****Copy me so I know you sent it! - Anne
With the start of each school year, we ask that student-athletes and parents read the Athletic Handbook carefully. Page 1 is a signature page. Have your son or daughter return this page with the required signatures to his/her coach as soon as possible. If you have any questions please call.
