    Spartan Ticket to Play - Fall Season

    By Deirdre Johnson 07/28/2019, 2:15pm EDT

    What is TICKET TO PLAY? 
    It is Sanderson's process of collecting sports physicals.  In order to tryout for a sport, athletes must turn in a valid sports physical and come get a ticket during the assigned collection date.  They must take the ticket and give it to the respective coach. If an athlete’s physical is incomplete, they will not receive a ticket and must come back another day to get their ticket.  No ticket---No try-outs.

    Who needs a ticket?
    Everyone who plans on trying out for a sport at Sanderson High School during the fall.  Please note, you will need a ticket even if you have already turned in a physical.

    When and where can an athlete receive their ticket?
    July 22nd-31st from 9-12 in the gym lobby 
    Aug. 1st-2nd from 11-1 downstairs by the girls locker room

    Who can collect an athlete’s physical packet?
    Deirdre Johnson, Head Athletic Trainer or Amy Stewart, Assistant Athletic Trainer

    What is on the ticket? 
    Tickets will be color coded by the season.  The fall season ticket is red.  The athlete's name, valid physical date, sport and a signature from Deirdre Johnson or Amy Stewart is required on the ticket.

    Can an athlete turn their physical in earlier?
    Yes, they can but they will only receive their ticket on the week before tryouts when tickets are being handed out.

    What happens if an athlete plays several sports?
    If a student anticipates trying out for multiple sports throughout the year, they will need to get a ticket for each sport and they will need to get a ticket during the season collection period.

    Where can I find the physical packet?
    You can access the physical packet by going here.  Please be sure to fill out the entire packet.

    Athletics plays an important part in the life of Sanderson High School students by teaching life lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, and competition. We believe that the opportunity for participation in a wide variety of student-selected activities is a vital part of a student’s educational experience. Such participation is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the school, to the activity, to other students, to the community and to the athletes themselves. Through athletic competitions we seek to improve school spirit and help students develop pride in their school and community.
