Dear DPHS Students, Staff and Parents,
We are hopeful our athletic programs will resume to "normal" this year. As of now we must still abide by all Merced County Public Health Department and California Department of Health Guidelines as the safety of our students is our number one priority. This, like everything else, can and may change weekly.
Dos Palos High School strives to provide an athletic environment that will enrich the students overall educational experiences. Our goal is to provide competitive opportunities that encourage lifetime activities, commitment, teamwork, and character development amongst all student athletes. Our athletic programs firmly believe that all participants are students first and athletes second, as it is part of our District Athletic Policy
ATHLETIC PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS
Students must have physical examinations before any practice will be allowed or uniforms issued.
Sports physicals are only good for one calendar year.
NO EQUIPMENT FOR ANY SPORT WILL BE ISSUED UNTIL EACH PROSPECTIVE ATHLETE HAS COMPLETED THEIR ATHLETIC REGISTRATION
