***NEW THIS 2019/2020 School YEAR – Register for Sports at Excelsior ONLINE***

STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PRACTICE UNTIL ONLINE REGISTRATION IS COMPLETED AND ALL REQUIRED FORMS ARE ON FILE. You may only sign up for one Sport per season.

Use this link to register and enter documents https://linnmar-ar.rschooltoday.com/

  • You will be asked to upload and sign these documents:
    • Physical Form: Valid for ONE year from the date of the physical examination by the doctor.
    • Health/Injury Info
    • Concussion Waiver
    • Good Conduct Policy

You will need your student ID Number (listed on your student ID card) and a Current Physical  (if you already have a copy on file with the school, email the athletic secretary at dsevcik@linnmar.k12.ia.us,  and we will then send you a copy to upload). Once you get registered, it will be much easier to just renew the information online each year as your student goes through athletics at Linn-Mar.

Changes to the practice and game schedules, including cancellations due to weather, will be posted on the Excelsior Twitter page. Decisions impacting practices based on weather will be decided by 2:15 pm.  Please encourage your student to listen to announcements daily for the latest information regarding athletic information.

Practices are held DAILY during the season at Excelsior, with the exception of Cross Country & Wrestling (held at Oak Ridge) and Swimming (at the Linn Mar Aquatic Center). Transportation to those practices will be provided, however parents should pick students up at the practice location at the conclusion of practice.

Practice times will be announced during announcements before the beginning of each season, with more detailed information given out by the coaches on the first day of practices. Transportation to away games will be provided and students will return to Excelsior unless otherwise communicated by the coach.
