Welcome to CHS Athletics
2020-2021 Athletes and Parents Registration is Open!
Athlete Online Registration
All Fighting Scot student-athletes are required to be registered in our online athletic registration program. We are very excited to announce that the Caledonia High School Athletic Department has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign athletic participation forms for your students online. The most exciting news is that FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice! You will review your information once per school year to verify the information is current and sign the forms.
Registration opens June 1, 2020 and closes on:
October 26, 2020 – Football
February 15, 2021 – Competitive Cheer, Gymnastics and Ice Hockey
April 30, 2021 – All other sports
All registration applications received after August 14, 2020, will incur a $30.00 late fee.
Athletics Return Plan Starting June 15th
Caledonia Athletic Department Return to Athleticism Plan Starting June 15th
Based on CDC, State of Michigan (SOM), and MHSAA guidelines, the athletic department will implement a transition for the “Return to Athleticism” plan. This plan will help the athlete’s transition bodies back to athletic participation, monitor the COVID-19 outbreak, install healthy safety practices, and help reduce the chance of injuries for all athletes.
As of right now, all indoor facilities are not open. Our plan will only shift to weight training and conditioning outdoors until the facility has been opened by the governor and our superintendent.

Athletic Physical Night Canceled - See Info
Athletic Physical Night Canceled
To all Parents & Student-Athletes:
On July 29th, the athletic department scheduled the annual physical night for our student-athletes. Due to COVID-19 and the inability to open the school indoor facilities, this event will be canceled. If you need a physical for this fall, please schedule a physical with your family doctor or a local health care provider.
Caledonia Athletic Department - Athletic Director
Returning Cal Athletes:
As stated with the MHSAA, if you had a sports physical on file from last year, that same physical can be used for this school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
If the athlete plans on using their physical from last year, there is a form that must be completed during athlete registration from the MHSAA. The athletic registration platform called 'Final Forms' will be open and live starting in mid-June.
Below is a physical copy of the MHSAA form as well:
I believe that interscholastic athletics exist to teach valuable life lessons for student-athletes. It is also my belief that athletics should serve as an extension of the classroom. The role of the athletic department is to help each student-athlete develop the whole person: physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. It is imperative that the athletic director and coaches of the Athletic Department be teachers first, teaching crucial life lessons that will help develop the whole person.
It is my goal, through education-based athletics, to promote an atmosphere of learning that will help to develop leaders on the playing field, in the classroom, and in the community. As an athletic administrator, I will be resolute in my approach to equip our student-athletes with the essential skills needed to build strong character. We will strive to teach valuable life lessons that will help each student-athlete understand the true meaning of selflessness, accountability, respect, and discipline.
