Blazers News · Introducing the Blue Card

Starting in the 2018-19 school year, there will be a new process in place to ensure student-athletes complete the necessary paperwork and eligibility checks to participate in athletics. Before a student-athlete can start practice, they must turn in a signed “Blue Card” to their coach or to the Athletic Department Office. In order for a Blue Card to be signed, a student-athlete must receive a check in the following four boxes and a signature from the Athletic Director, the Athletic Secretary, or the Secretary to the Superintendent:

  1. Current Physical on file (Dated after April 15 of previous school year)
  2. Eligibility Check (This is done in the school office) – in the previous semester, a student-athlete must receive credit in two-thirds of a full academic load. If you were a student at Kalkaska High School the previous semester this means you must have passed 4 of 6 classes.
  3. Pay to Play ($40) paid in full or Boosters Form. This is a big change as Pay-to-Play was previously due before the first contest. It is now due before a student-athlete can practice. If a student-athlete is cut, injured, or quits the team before the first competition the fee will be fully refunded. Boosters Assistance Forms can be found here.
  4. Transfer Paperwork on file (if applicable)

Students without a signed Blue Card will not be allowed to practice. During the summer months, this process can be completed at Central Office (315 S. Coral Street) Monday-Thursday from 8am-3pm or by emailing the athletic secretary below to arrange a different time. If you have any questions, please contact the athletic office by calling (231) 258-9167 or for a faster response during the summer, by sending an email to the athletic secretary at

Blue Cards are being mailed home with report cards. They are also available at Central Office or from your coach over the summer.
