High School Boys Golf

There will not be a HS Boys Golf team this year. If you would like to play golf you can tryout at your boundary high school since Maeser is not offering it.

Activities/Sports Eligibility for 1st Term 2019-2020

Do you plan on participating in a sport/activity during the 1st term of the 2019-2020 school year? If the answer is yes then your eligibility will be based on your 4th term grades. That is correct, the grades you earned during the 4th term of the 2018-2019 academic year will determine whether or not you can participate and this applies to all 8th-12th graders.

The standard is a 2.7 GPA with no Fs/NGs. An additional requirement for high school students is no Fs/NGs from any previous high school terms. If you do have an F/NG from a previous high school term, you have until August 16 to make up the F/NG. It is the respoonsibility of students to be aware of their individual grades and not the responsibility of the coaches and administration.

IMPORTANT Changes to UHSAA Sports Physical Policy

UHSAA has made some changes to their physical policy. Physicals that are completed between April 15-July 15 of any given year will be good until July 15 of the following year. If a student has their physical between the dates of July 16- April 14 it will also expire on July 15 of the following year. To make things consistent this will apply to all sports both non-UHSAA as well as middle school sports.

Here are some examples to clarify:

Physical Completed Expiration
December 10, 2018 July 15, 2019
February 20, 2019 July 15, 2019
April 20, 2019 July 15, 2020
June 6, 2019 July 15, 2020
January 15, 2020 July 15, 2020

In addition, sports physicals are required BEFORE tryouts/season practices at all levels (middle school AND high school). Athletes will not be permitted to tryout and/or practice unless/until the school has a current sports physical on file.

One thought on “Maeser Updates: 26 July 2019”

  1. I have loved attending Karl G. Maeser Preparatory Academy since seventh grade. I love the teachers, and feel that they genuinely care about their students. The academics are great, and they focus on a classical education which I think strengthens students understanding of the world around them. Maeser is awesome!
