BOUND

Some of you are familiar with the platform Bound that has been used for high school statistic keeping in the state of Iowa. Bound has expanded as a platform and is offering many more items that are useful to an athletic program. Midland has begun the process of transitioning to Bound for many items on the athletic side within the district. As we being to use more of the items, we will continue to send information out.

ACTIVITY REGISTRATION:

All students will register to participate in all school sponsored sports in BOUND. This must be done before the first day of practice.

Select the Registration Tab. You will need to create an account and add a student. Once you find your student you will verify the information and click ‘Connect to My Student‘. For assistance contact Bound with the green chat bubble.

Once you register for one sport, you can click NEXT to register for other sports.

We suggest you check what notifications you have set up to receive. The system will notify you before your child’s physical is to expire so you can get an appointment set up so they stay in compliance and can keep participating.

Students and parents will need to electronically sign the concussion form and player/parent expectations. Once these are signed, they will cover the entire current school year.

Physical forms will need uploaded to BOUND. Once it expires you will need to upload a photo of your physical. You can turn them into the office to be uploaded at school if necessary.

If questions, feel free to reach out to the Athletic Director at midlandad@midland.k12.ia.us

NO PETS ALLOWED AT MIDLAND SPONSORED EVENTS

Reminder: That no pets are allowed at any activity sponsored by Midland, included events at the fairgrounds.

Anyone with a pet will be asked to remove the pet from the premises. If a service dog is required for an event, the district asked that the school is contacted prior to the event.

This is an IHSAA and IGHSAU policy for all events.  Thanks for your cooperation with this rule.


ACTIVITY BUS

Activity buses are run to each of the towns within our district starting at Wyoming at 5PM only on nights where either Eagle Lab is held or school sponsored middle school sports practices are held. High schoolers are expected to provide their own transportation.


TRANSPORTATION TO/FROM AWAY EVENTS

School policy states that all athletes must ride school transportation to away events unless they have administrative approval for other arrangements. Parents and grandparents can sign their athlete out from any event by signing the checkout sheet with the coach at the event. If someone other than a parent or grandparent is going to pick up your athlete, the school needs two forms of notification prior to the event. Send a note with the athlete to give to the coach and email or call the office.


MIDLAND ATHLETIC BOOSTER CLUB

All parents of Midland athletes in grades 6-12 who participate in school sponsored sports are considered Booster Club members. The Booster club raises money, mainly through the home food stands, that purchases ALL middle school and high school sports uniforms as well as many other items needed by the coaching staff.

The concession stand at home athletic events is run by parent volunteers. The profit from the concession stand is used to purchase uniforms, equipment that the AD can’t purchase, and supplies to support our student athletes (posters and stuff for Homecoming mostly at this time). If other groups want to sell food at a home event or use Booster equipment at a event, please have that sponsor attend a meeting and ask us. It is not OK for a group to just assume they can hold a supper during a basketball game. We plan inventory and schedule our workers accordingly. We can’t give up every Friday or Saturday quad basketball date to other groups. I can’t remember when we have ever told any group they could not sell food, but it is only right that the sponsor and students learn that one must ask and be given permission to do something of this nature.

Athletic Booster meetings are scheduled the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30PM usually at the high school. All parents of athletes in grades 6-12 welcome and encouraged to attend!

There are a lot of ways you can help the boosters – attending meetings and giving ideas, organizing food stand workers, inventorying food stand supplies, picking up food stand supplies at Sam’s Club, inventorying/ordering beverages, coordinating apparel orders, etc. If you can help in one of these other ways it can replace food stand worker assignments. Please let an officer know how you can help them out.


ATHLETIC BOOSTER FOOD STAND SIGNUP AND ASSIGNMENTS

Each high school athlete is asked to provide two volunteers for each sport that they participate in. Each middle school athlete is asked to provide one volunteer for each sport that they participate in. Volunteers can work the food stand during any season throughout the year and at any level. Volunteers are signed up at a first requested basis.

Food stand signup document

To sign up contact Michelle in the HS office via email or phone call. These are assigned on a first requested, first filled basis. If not signed up, a time will be assigned to the parents of ALL athletes.
