Current Tryouts

Winter 2020 SEASON

Utica Athletics

Winter Sports – Meeting & Tryout information


 Attached are the two documents you will potentially need for your athlete prior to the season.  The MHSAA has waived the requirement of a NEW physical for the 20-21 school year. If your athlete had one for the 2019-2020 school year, then you just need to fill out the questionnaire/waiver form.  If your athlete didn't have a physical last year, then they are required to get one and that form is attached as well.

They will need to come to the first practice with the one that applies to them.  

  1.  If athlete is a returning player, then we have their last years physical on file. They must fill out the health questionnaire form attached and turn that in on the first day.
  2.  If athlete didn't have a physical last year then they must take the physical form to their doctor/urgent care to get a sports physical.  Many Urgent Cares in the area do physicals as well if the athlete is unable to get into their primary care physician.

If they are new to the program, then we do not have a physical for them.  If they did play a sport in the 8th grade they can bring in that last year's physical to turn in to their coach and the health waiver to meet that requirement.  The Athletic Director did receive last year's physicals from Eppler and Shelby. 


The Utica High School Athletic Department will now be transitioning to all online Pre-Participation Athletic Forms starting for the Winter 2020-21 season.  Parents and students are encouraged to create your accounts now and complete the necessary ONE-TIME forms that will allow you to be eligible to tryout/join any sport for any season throughout this school year.  Yes, you heard that, ONE TIME.  So, for those multisport athletes who have had to fill out the same forms for each season, you will no longer have to do that.  You can upload new physicals and/or complete this year’s one-time MHSAA health waiver form as well. Spring sport parents and athletes are encouraged to do this now as well, why wait!

 Key Points to Remember:

1.       The parent and the athlete MUST have separate accounts using different emails and/or cell numbers.

2.       Parents must remember to LINK to their students account once that is created.  This allows for the parent and the student to be able to complete the signature’s required on all the forms.

3.       Accounts can be created using a computer or a mobile phone.

4.       Upon completion of tryouts, log back in to PlanetHS to find the PaySchools link for submitting payment for UCS Pay to Participate fees.


Directions to create your PlanetHS account are attached.  It is attached below under the Kick Off Letter Link
