The physical, or EL2, is valid for 365 days from the date the physician signs it.

If your documents are listed as "pending" I have not had the time to review them and will get to them ASAP.

** Please do not email me and ask to clear your documents, or to prioritize yours above others.

General information about IMS Athletics and Activities

Athletic Eligibility Academics Requirements
A Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 is required to play Interscholastic Athletics. 
Baseball and Softball GPA’s are based on the previous school years 4th 9 weeks grades. Incoming 6th graders have a “free pass” the 1st 9 weeks of each school year as always.

Interscholastic Sports are competitive teams that play other schools within Palm Beach County. Interscholastic Sports consists of a tryout period, a season schedule that lasts approximately 6 weeks and possibly time for playoffs. Students who wish to tryout must have the proper paperwork turned into the Athletic Director prior to the tryout dates. You can download the Athletic Eligibility Forms from the “Interscholastic Sports” page on the IMS website. Paperwork must be filled out completely in order to try out.

Intramurals - IMS sponsors a well balanced program of intramural competition for boys and girls.  The objective of the program is to provide an opportunity for physical exercise, social interaction and wholesome fun.  Emphasis is placed on the enjoyment of the sport in a less competitive context.  This is a great time for your child to experience a new sport or enjoy a sport he/she is already familiar with.  Students do not compete against other schools.  Competition is between IMS students only.  It’s easy to get involved.  There is no paperwork, no tryouts, and no commitment.  Simply show up and play. Intramurals can be held before or after school depending on the sponsor's schedule and availability of facilities.

Clubs - At IMS we offer a wide variety of clubs.  Joining a club is a great way to expand your educational and social horizons.  Clubs provide enrichment in theater, music, art, chess, math and writing, to name a few.   Meetings can be held before or after school and are year round.  Come join the fun, it’s easy to get involved.  There is no paperwork to fill out and you may participate in as few or as many sessions as your schedule will allow.
