What programs do we offer at Memorial?
All athletes must pay the pay to participate fee of $150.00 for the first sport they participate in at Memorial. If they have an older sibling playing a sport in the Mentor Schools or if they are playing a second sport the fee is only $50.00. Please let the coach or athletic director know that an older sibling is or has participated in a sport so we can correctly put the fee on infinite campus. IT IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED THAT PARENTS PAY THE FEE ONLINE.
Do I have to attend the player/parent meeting if I already attended the same meeting at the high school or earlier in the year?
Do I have to attend all practices if I go out for a team or make a team that I try out for?
Yes, all athletes are expected to attend all practices. Athletes/Parents are expected to contact the coach in the event that a practice must be missed. Any unexcused practices can lead to denial of participation in games.
How can I contact one of the coaches about information about a specific sport?
If you click on teams on the homepage of this site, go to the specific team you want information for and coaches email will be on that page
Where else can I find information about Memorial Athletics?

Admission fee for athletic contests
The GCC MS East League requires that schools charge an admission fee to enter all athletic contests. The fee for regular season games is $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for students. The fee for league tournaments is $4.00 for adults and $2.00 for students.
The " Pay to Participate" program is designed to help defray the costs of the athletic program. The cost is $200.00 for the first sport per athlete at the high school and $150.00 for the first sport per athlete at the junior highs. The cost per athlete for additional sports is $50.00 per sport. Participants must pay their fee prior to the first contest. Students, who pay the fee and then decide not to stay with the team, do get a refund if they leave the team prior to the first contest.
As family members of an athlete, you may have noticed that during HOME events the PTA sponsors a concession stand. The profits from the concession stand help fund the PTA budget. This budget is responsible for such things as: Whole School Assemblies, PTA Scholarships, PTA Reflections Program, Teacher/Staff Grants, 8th Grade Party and PTA's S.T.A.R Program. We're even there to host the fall and winter sports banquets!
ALL ATHLETES MUST COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING FOUR FORMS BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN ATHLETICS AT MEMORIAL. ALL FORMS WILL BE COMPLETED ONLINE EXCEPT THE PHYSICAL FORM.
