You must also include a copy of your birth certificate.
All athletes must be insured to participate in any athletic activity! HISD offers Student Accident/Athletic Insurance at a reduced cost of $35.00 per athlete, per school year. You must make one of three choices with regard to student insurance:
- You have insurance and waive HISD insurance; complete your insurance information and check “HISD Waiver” box on the Medial Information Form. You must turn in a copy of your insurance card and fill out a waiver and return it to your coach;
- You have insurance and want HISD insurance to act as secondary coverage; pay $35, complete your insurance information and check the “School Insurance” box; or
- You do not have insurance; pay $35 and check the “School Insurance” box.
If you are purchasing HISD insurance, please include cash, check, or money order (payable to Westside High School Athletics) with your packet forms.* If you elect to waive HISD insurance, please ask your head coach for a waiver form. This is required by HISD and must be notarized.OUR VISIONAlthough wins and losses are typical indicators of success, they should never be the cornerstones of the program. Our athletic program vision focuses on developing the well-rounded athlete. We emphasize the value of the experience, involvement, sportsmanship, community service, and educational process. Our program develops student character while striving to offer an opportunity for every student athlete to participate in some form or fashion.
Athletics is a privilege and not a right. Our student athletes will be held to higher standards and will be held accountable for meeting or exceeding them; it's not just about talent and performance. As we push our athletes to develop character in addition to physical skills, the wins and losses will take care of themselves! “BLEED BLUE!”
