Baseball season begins for both 7th and 8th graders on Monday, April 13, 2020. Preseason informational meetings will be held during lunch sometime prior to Spring Break.
To be eligible to physically practice the first day of the season, players MUST be fully registered and cleared with the required paperwork and eligibility forms through the FINAL FORMS website that LMS began using this school year (LHS also uses the program). Final Forms can be accessed through the main LMS webpage, where directions on how to access the site, along with a "Parent Playbook" about the program are included.
The only required hardcopy paperwork required to be submitted to the LMS office is a copy of the athlete's doctor's physical (these are good for 2 years).
