Athletics Co-Curricular Program
Komachin students participate in the North Thurston Public Schools middle school athletic program. There are four sports seasons available for all 7th and 8th-grade students to participate in. Students interested in participating will need the appropriate forms for parent permission, medical insurance, a physical examination, pay a participation fee, and maintain academic eligibility. A current physical is good for all seasons during the school year. All forms must be completed and returned to the office prior to the start of a season to ensure eligibility to participate.
Students shall be held responsible for compliance of all school rules and North Thurston Public School policies during after-school activities. Infractions of those rules shall be subject to the same corrective action or discipline as if applied during the regular school program and may eliminate eligibility for continuing in the activity.
In order to qualify to turn out for athletics, a student must pass all classes taken during the previous quarter. In order to maintain athletic eligibility during the athletic season, a student shall maintain passing grades in all classes and meet behavioral expectations. Eligibility forms and Athletic Handbooks with guidelines and a Code of Ethics are available online and in the Main Office.
No student may participate in any extra-curricular activity if they currently have a school fine. This includes books, school supplies, restitution fees, returning uniforms from a previous sport, etc. Fines must be cleared through the Main Office in order to participate.
