Meet the UCHS Athletic Director!
Contact information for Athletic Director, Mary Ann McLaughlin:
Hello Parents and Student-Athletes,
Welcome to Athletics at University City High School!
Thank you for your interest in sports at University City High School. The new Athletic Packet for the 2015-2016 school year will be posted at the end of May. You will be able to download and print a copy or you can pick up a copy of the 19-page packet in the front office. All sport physical exams need to be dated June 1, 2015 or after. The medical doctor must fill out pages 14 & 15 of the Athletic Packet and stamp the pages with their information. Be sure to take the form with you to the physical exam appointment.
Once an athlete has completed his/her athletic packet they are cleared for athletic participation for all sports for the entire 2015-2016 school year. Each coach will receive a master list of "cleared" athletes from the Athletic Director. Once the student-athletes name is on the cleared list they can try-out for the sport. No student-athlete can try-out for a team without a completed Athletic packet that includes a physical exam by a medical doctor, evidence of insurance, and all necessary signatures.
Please have your son or daughter bring his or her Athletic Packet directly to Coach McLaughlin in person. She will take a few minutes to review the packet with the student-athlete. If it is incomplete, she will give it back to the athlete to complete and ask that they get it completed and bring back to her. Please do not leave your packet with someone else or drop it in Coach McLaughlin's mailbox.
During the school year, Coach McLaughlin can be found in the Physical Education office on the back side of the Gym on a daily basis Monday through Friday. She teaches Physical Education classes and is available before school, at lunch and after school for processing athletic packets.
Each year that a student wants to participate in sports he/she must have a medical exam by a licensed medical physician. Physicals can be done through your own doctor, CVS pharmacy, and by other medical clinics.
We have a certified Athletic Trainer, Kelly Johnson, who is available each day after school to treat our athletes on a walk-in basis. She is here to help all athletes. We highly recommend that if something is bothering an athlete, if he/she is injured or hurt, he/she should see the Trainer right after school.
We want all of our student-athletes to have pride in our sports' programs and enjoy their high school playing experience while succeeding in the classroom and on the field!
