Because Colorado HS Sports Association (CHSAA) requires all athlete's in Colorado to have physical info on file with their school (Rocky - Ms. Seale - Athletic Secretary), registered, eligibility checked/cleared, along with proof of payment shown before an athlete may participate in any sports season. Once this has been done, an orange card is issued.

However, athlete must be sure to be registered online for the 2019-2020 year (see step #2 below), and pay athletic and training fee for current sport.
(Note: it is the parent/students responsibility to know when the athletes physical expires and plan accordingly to replace expired physical the day after expiration.
