Q: What is a Panther Card? Do I need one to participate? 

A:  A Panther Card is a document provided by the Middle Athletic Office.  The card indicates that an athlete has an athletic physical on file, paid insurance, & has completed an eligibility check.  You will need a panther card each season.  Cards are issued approximately one week prior to the start date of the season.  You will not be allowed to tryout/participate until you have a Panther Card.  Insurance can be paid to the Middle School Athletic office during school hours & posted evening hours.
