Getting involved in Athletics is easy! Becoming a Student-Athlete can be an educational experience in many ways - learning teamwork, cooperation, perseverance, determination, time management skills, selflessness are just a few. Getting involved in athletics can also help physically as well. In a time when many students are obese and sedative, involvement in physical activity helps with strength, cardiovascular conditioning, coordination, and much more.
Leesburg High School offers a wide variety of both team and individual sport teams throughout the school year. The seasons are broken into 3 basic seasons - fall, winter, and spring. Please see the "Sports" page for a list of teams that are offered. Additionally, LHS offers a conditioning and weight training program throughout the summer months to all of our athletes and those wishing to become athletes.
In order to participate in any athletic activity - open gyms, season participation, weight room, or conditioning an athlete must have a completed physical packet on file in the Athletic Office. We ask that athletes either pick a packet up in the Athletic Office or download all 4 forms from the "Forms" section of the Athletic webpage. Please return completed packets directly to the Athletic Office. ***Please remember the following - Please make sure the physician both signs and dates the back side of the EL2 form and secondly, please remember to include insurance information on the EL3 form -regardless of the type of insurance. *** The state of Florida and the FHSAA requires that all student athletes have insurance as athletic injuries are not covered by the school or Athletic Department.
After turning in a physical packet, students are encouraged to speak directly to the head coach of the sport they are interested in for additional sport specific information.
