Important note on Insurance for your student-athlete:
The California Education Code (Sections 32220-32224 and 49470-49474) requires that each member of an athletic team shall have insurance coverage for medical and hospital expenses in an amount of at least $1500 while practicing for or participating in athletic activities sponsored under the jurisdiction of a public school district.
In order to comply with state law, each athletic team member must be enrolled in either the District approved medical plan or have medical insurance coverage in an amount of at least $1500 provided under any other type of insurance plan(s) which may have been purchased by the student or by the parent/guardian.
Without Insurance, a student athlete will not be able to clear for a sport. For Sweetwater Union High School District offered insurance plans, please contact your schools ASB office for more information.
For questions about specific sports offered at your child’s school site, please visit the ASB office on your campus or speak with your school’s Athletic Director.
