Every CISD student-athlete must have a cleared medical exam prior to try-outs and participation.

    This year, CISD is under contract with Adidas. We have an online portal where Adidas Dragon Gear can be purchased for your athlete. Go online, the link can be found here. Enter sale code: 43SDQ to access the portal for CMS Boys Athletics.

    Football: (Recommendation)
    We recommend that you purchase at least one if not two pairs of the black football pants with the integrated pads. These are machine washable as is, so there is no hassle for you having to take the pads out each time you wash them at home. EVERYONE will wear black pants for practices and games. If your son wants to wear the long tights under his pants please be sure they are WHITE.

    If you do not wish to purchase Dragon Gear through our Adidas ordering portal, we ask the shirts/shorts be within our school’s 4 color scheme (green, grey, black, and white). Shorts must be black, must shirts may be green, grey, black, or white. If you have questions on this, please let us know.

    Summer Preparation:
    Performance Course conducts our offseason/summer workouts for our athletes at Carroll Senior High School during the summer. This is an amazing opportunity for our athletes to get ahead of the game and come into fall being ready to roll. Again, this is not just for football and all sports utilize PC because they train you to be the best athlete possible. Click on the link below to get your son registered for the summer courses!

    FAQs
    How will information be communicated to us parents?
    We take pride in having open communication between coaches and parents. We will relay any information to you via email. With that being said, in order to ensure you receive that information please have all recipients’ emails listed in Skyward because we pull our email list directly from there.
    What if my son plays other sports outside of school?
    We love our athletes to be multi-sport! However, if you are a part of the CMS Athletic Program, our expectation is that your son is able to attend every practice and every game. Failure to do so is addressed in the Middle School Handbook.
    What is the difference between Athletics and PE?
    Athletics is much more demanding. It is focused on building our team sports that will continue on up to the high school. All students enrolled in Athletics are required to compete in at least 1 sport.
    What sports are cut sports?
    Basketball is a cut sport. Football, Cross Country, and Track are non-cut sports. Track has time/distance qualifiers each week.
    Is my son allowed to bring his own equipment?
    Yes, we do allow athletes to bring their own equipment as long as it has been inspected by one of our coaches and is up to date on inspections. We do have top of the line equipment available to you if you do not want to purchase your own.
