SJCSD SUMMER USE PROGRAM
Ponte Vedra High School is happy to announce the SJCSD Summer Use Program under which, select dates and times will be available for the community to utilize our tennis courts and running surface at the track. The dates are June 11, 18, 25 & July 9, 16, 23, 2016. The times are 9AM to 12PM. The use is open to individuals and does not apply to camps, clinics, team use, or lessons. All green spaces are off limits (all practice and playing fields including the field inside track). For access, parking will be on the street side at tennis for both track and tennis access. The pedestrian gate at tennis will be open and runners may access the track by following the sidewalk from tennis, behind the stadium, to the track. Trash cans will be available for any trash you may have. Restrooms are accessible at the equestrian park near tennis. For more information, see the SJCSD flyer.
YMCA STUDENT MEMBERSHIPS AVAILABLE
The YMCA is offering student membership specials for Ponte Vedra High School Students. For more information, please see the membership flyer.
Student participation in multiple sports is highly encouraged by Ponte Vedra High School and our school district. Participation in two sports in the same season is not permissible, but participation in fall, winter, and spring seasons is available to all athletes. In the event of an overlap due to transition from one season to another, the athlete must finish out the previous season. Coaches will make every effort to assist the students who wish to tryout for an upcoming sport with scheduling the two days allowed. This policy is to minimize the impact on the current sport while still allowing the student to tryout for the upcoming sport.
CERTIFIED ATHLETIC TRAINER
The ATC is available to students to assist them in preparing for competition and practice. The ATC hours for evaluation and rehabilititation are during all three lunch periods M, Tu, Th, & F from 12:00pm to 2:00pm, and W from 11:25am to 1:19pm. The ATC is also available after school for game and practice preparation.
Since class participation is a significant key to student success, students are NOT ALLOWED to miss class to see the trainer.

Below are the first permissible dates for sports to start tryouts or practice. Not all teams start on the first permissible date, but that is a good guideline for having all paperwork submitted. The best way to be sure your paperwork is up-to-date is to take advantage of our on campus sports physicals on May 21, 2015. These physicals will be good for the entire school year, even if you play a spring sport. Here is the link to access the dates from FHSAA: FHSAA Program Dates
