Fall Sports Registration Open

Fall Sports Registration Open

Registration for fall sports (Bowling, Cycling, Distance Running, Flag Football, Golf, Powerlifting, Soccer, Tennis and Volleyball) is now open. Athletes can register here on our web site under Become an Athlete/Register for Sport. Remember that all athletes must have a current medical on file in order to register and participate in any SOHO activity. These must be updated every three years. Medical forms can be found on our web site. Athletes without a current medical must have a completed one prior to the first practice or they will be dropped to the waitlist. Some of the training locations have not been confirmed but registered athletes will be informed of the location prior to the beginning of the season. Also, some sports have limits on the number of athletes we can accommodate – bowling and powerlifting, for example. Once the number is reached, all subsequent registrants will be placed on a waiting list.
NOTE: Athletes registering for a team sport must review the Team Sports Participation Policy found our web site under Policies. Athletes may only register for one team sport a season.
There is no Fitness program in the fall and Quest training is only open to those who register for Powerlifting. (see article in last month’s newsletter.)
