The interscholastic athletic program is available to all students in grades nine - twelve. The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association sets up rules and regulations that govern this program and our teams participate in the very competitive Middlesex League. We offer a comprehensive program that consists of twenty-eight sports with fifty-seven levels of competition. Our teams are very competitive and during the past several years have won seventeen league, four divisional and two state championships.
In order for students to participate in Athletics they must complete following E~Forms:
- Parent Permission form
- MIAA Chemical Health form
- Concussion Education form
- Seasonal Concussion History form
Parents will use the same electronic process that is currently used for submitting Student Update Forms.
You will receive an email on a pre-scheduled date:
- around the second week in February for Spring Sports;
- on or around the first week in June for Fall Sports and
- on or around the second week in November for Winter Sports with a link to the forms.
You will receive a separate email for each of your children that attend BHS. The email is sent to one email address per household to avoid multiple submissions. Complete the E~Form and submit. As a bonus you will be able to see what forms you have submitted.
Note: There is NO E~FORM for the required pre-participation physical. A hard copy of the required pre-participation physical will still need to be submitted to the school nurse as has been done in the past
