To Play a Sport at SRHS in 2019-20
Students interested in participating in sport must fill out an athletic packet online. Some sports require a concussion baseline test before participation, which is conducted through the school, ask the coaches or AD for detail. Students must have a 2.0 GPA or higher in the latest grading period (8th grade matters for incoming 9th graders) unweighted, not cumulative, to participate, otherwise a waiver- a GPA between 1.4 and 1.9- form can be filled out (communicate with the coach and athletic director for more information). Additionally, a physical dated after June 1 of the summer before the school year starts will be required for any sport during next school year. If you attended a different high school at some point, you must pick up and fill out NCS paperwork, see the ADs for paperwork.
Santa Rosa Community Health (SRCH) and Santa Rosa High school have a long history of caring for our youth. As you may know, SRCH has a clinic specifically designed to meet the needs of our teens. Our teen clinic is the Elisa Allen Clinic, located behind EA High School. We provide care at low or no cost for all Sonoma County teens. Even though we have just begun summer, this is a great time for youth to make an appointment to get their sports physical well in advance of when they will need it for fall. We would be grateful if you would share our information with your teams!
We are open M-Th 8am to 5 / 8-3:30 on Fridays please feel free to have the students call to make an appointment.
Incoming 9th Graders
Coaches can have contact with incoming 9th graders/graduated 8th graders once these three requirements are met:
- It is after June 1st
- The student-athlete has graduated 8th grade
- The student-athlete is enrolled at SRHS
SRHS Athletics Chain of Command

- Contact Coach of specific team
- Contact Head Coach of program

We take issues, comments, and complaints seriously and will work to make sure all parties needs are met and satisfied to the best of our abilities.
Physical Education Credit
For those students interested in earning PE credit by playing a season of a school sport, the process and guidelines are as follows: Student-Athlete must not miss more than 10 days of participation, at the end of the season the Student-Athlete will receive the waiver form from his/her coach, or print the form, then acquire the appropriate signatures on the form, and turn it into the Athletic Director for processing all within two weeks after the last regular season game. Forms turned in after that are concerned late and not accepted.
Scholarship opportunities for student-athletes are available, get information from the College & Career Center or one of the ADs.
