- Medical Emergency Form
- Eligibility (if transfer student)
-We are aware that players participate in other sports, clubs, etc. We want guys on the summer roster that will be able to commit to all of our basketball schedule. We want to maximize the opportunities we give the players, and having guys only show up to part of the summer takes away that opportunity from other players. Players should check the baseball, soccer, football, lacrosse, etc, schedule and make sure that they can commit to summer ball before tryouts. If they cannot commit to summer basketball. If they cannot play summer ball, they can still participate and tryout come winter season (November). Please check all practice dates, tournaments, and team camp to see if your son can commit to all of our summer schedule.
The Summmer ball schedule is online at www.camasbasketball.com under the schedule tab. Most games are TBD and will vary on bracketing.

9th Grade Athletic Eligibility
The Camas School District provides many opportunities for student-athletes at the high school level. It is important to understand our district’s scholastic requirements now in order to compete as a 9th grader next fall.
- Fall academic eligibility is determined by the last grading period of the year. So a freshman’s eligibility will depend on his/her third trimester grades
- Student-athletes must end the school year with at least a 2.0 GPA and not fail more than one class
- Student-athletes that are academically ineligible will be under academic probation which does not allow the athlete to participate in competition
- The academic probation period can be viewed under “ATHLETICS” in the Camas High School Student Handbook or the Camas School District Athletic Handbook
The Camas School District is committed to the notion of the scholar-athlete. While we look forward to having your athlete participate in the high school athletic program, we are equally excited for your student to experience the excellence of our academic programs.
