Requirements for Participation
Before any student may try out, they must have an APS physical form packet on file with DT Howard Middle School. All forms need to be submitted to Coach Abernathy in order to try-out for a sport. All physicals must be submitted on the APS physical form packet.
Required Paperwork: All paperwork turned in before allowed to try out...No exceptions!
- All sections of the APS Physical form packet must be filled out completely. No child may tryout without a recent physical, parent consent, or insurance.
- If you are using your own insurance for your child’s coverage, you must provide a copy of your child’s insurance card. We need to have both sides of the card on file.
Academic Requirements: Student athletes must have passed 5 classes in the previous semester in order to be eligible for participation (ex. a 7th grade football player must have passed 5 classes in 2nd semester of 6th grade to be eligible).

2021-22 E-Tickets & Clear Bag Policy
To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry into Atlanta Public Schools Athletic venues, the Office of Safety and Security will implement the Operational Clear Bag Procedure beginning August 20, 2021, that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums, gymnasiums, and other athletic fields.
The district is also implementing an e-ticket only initiative at all athletic events charging admission. This new process will be in place at Lakewood Stadium, Henderson Stadium, and the Walden Athletic Complex, as well as at all school-based athletic facilities hosting competitions where a ticket must be purchased for entry.
Through an agreement with GoFan, those wishing to attend games will be able to purchase tickets through the APS GoFan page. An e-ticket will be sent to the purchaser’s mobile device, which will be scanned at the stadium or school for entry into the game.
