Red Card Information

What is a red card?

A red card is a communication tool the athletic office uses to communicate to coaches that student-athletes have all the required information to participate in athletics at Watertown High School. 

What things need to be done/completed to obtain a red card?

  1. Student-athlete AND a parent must watch the red card video through Skyward Family access. Any WHS student who has not attended a Red Card meeting or watched the video, and plans on participating in WHS sports, is required to watch the video with a parent. Both parent and athlete must sign off that they watched and understand the contents of the video.  (instructions on where to find the video is below under Resources)

  2. A season fee of $75 must be paid (a family max is currently set at $225 per school year).

  3. All the athletic red card forms are now uploaded in your family access Skyward account under custom forms. (see link below for instructions)  The paper copy of the Physical form MUST be signed by the doctor, completely filled out by parent, and brought into the main office.  The online forms must be completely filled out by parent AND student athlete before the student will be allowed to participate in sports.
