Athletic Eligibility Packet
Before athletes are eligible to attend the first day of practice, each athlete must return a completed Athletic Eligibility Packet to the Business Office. Questions regarding this packet can be directed to the Business Office at 509.354.6006.
In addition to the completed packet, please bring $40 cash or check (made out to Ferris H.S.) to purchase a GSL card, which is mandatory to participate in sports.
Once your athletic packet is approved, the Business Office will issue a Clearance Form directly to the coach, which is necessary to participate.
Below are the required forms, all in PDF format. Please print and complete each form.

Student Health Conditions and After School Activities
It is the parent or guardian's responsibility to alert all after school activity coaches or instructors if their child has a health condition and/or a Care Plan in place. This includes, but is not limited to: sports, drama, debate, music, cheerleading, and dance. It is also the parent or guardian's responsibility to provide any medication needed for these after school activities. Some of these programs are led by individuals who are not full time employees of Spokane Public Schools. They may not have access to the health trainings offered through the district. Please make sure that your child's coach or instructor knows how to respond to your child's health condition in an emergency.
Student Athlete Use of performance Enhancing Supplements
The athletic department of Ferris High School holds with the following beliefs regarding the use of performance enhancing supplements (e.g. creatine, protein, testosterone) by our student athletes.
- We believe schools and coaches are not medical authorities and should not recommend or promote any kind of non-prescription medication or nutritional supplement.
- We believe it is in the best interest of each student athlete to seek the advice of their own personal physician. We believe the physician, the athlete’s family, and the athlete must make an informed decision as to the use of performance enhancing supplements.
- We believe that in order to become a complete student athlete, the individual must understand and exercise a strong work ethic.
- We believe that individual effort is the most important ingredient to athletic competition, not winning or losing. It is our hope that through this work ethic, the athlete will develop true commitment, dedication, and passion for their sport. This includes NOT taking shortcuts to achieve their athletic goals.
