All Sports All Seasons Parent Meeting 
The annual All Sport All season Parent Meeting will be held on Monday, August 9, at 8:00 pm via Zoom. If you have a student planning to participate in a fall, winter, and/or spring sport in the 2021-2022 school year, you must have one parent/guardian present at this meeting. The Athletic Department will present information important to the quality of your family's experience in athletics at Grand Rapids Christian High School. Some of the topics to be covered include faith formation, social media, eligibility, training rules, and leadership opportunities.

Sports Physicals 
Everyone planning to play sports at Grand Rapids Christian High School in the 2021-22 school year needs to have an MHSAA physical form on file with the high school athletic office before they are allowed to participate. A valid physical for 2021-22 must be completed any time after April 15, 2021. You may turn in the completed physical to the GRCHS athletic office by mail or email (to cgroendyk@grcs.org) as soon as you finish it, even if it is during the summer. You may print out a physical form here. This form must be completed with all signatures in order to participate in sports at GRCHS. You may attach your doctor’s office physical form for the doctor portion of this form but the parent portion and all signatures need to be completed on this form.
