Fall Tryout Information 2021-2022

June 22, 2020


Tryouts for the 2020-21 fall season begin Aug. 9, 2021, for Cross Country, Golf, Softball, Tennis and Volleyball.


Sports Physicals

As mandated by Missouri State High School Activities Association, student-athletes are not eligible for tryouts or competition until they have an annual physical and complete the MSHSAA Physical Exam Form. When completed, the form must be submitted electronically to the PRIVIT website. All other forms shown under the athlete's account must be completed. To ensure proper completion, please refer to either the New Parent Instructions or Returning Parent Instructions. Student-athletes are not allowed to participate in tryouts or contests until all forms are completed and submitted correctly online by Friday, Aug. 6. MSHSAA Bylaw 3.8.1 and 4.5.4 now allows a physical exam certification by a medical professional (MD/DO/ARNP/PA/Chiropractor) and completed on or after Aug 1, 2018, to be valid for a duration of two years from the date issue, unless a physician specifically notes on the PPE that the physical is only valid for one year. While the MSHSAA PPE Form is now valid for a two-year period from the date of the physical examination, all other pre-participation documents on PRIVIT must be completed/updated annually for every student-athlete.

NOTE: It is imperative to use the appropriate Parent Instructions and proper submission. No paper forms will be accepted and will be returned to the student-athlete. For questions completing the online submission, please contact PRIVIT Customer Service via https://support.privit.com/hc/en-us or by calling 844-234-4357. To verify your account is properly completed, contact STA Athletic Trainer, Lisa Brandorff

Baseline Testing

It is required that all athletes must have a current baseline test for the school year on file via the XLNTbrain website prior to the start of tryouts. Tests must be repeated each school year by all student-athletes.Baseline tests are easily completed at home (recommended) by your daughter, and take approximately 40 minutes to complete. Please click here for the Athlete/Guardian Instructions on how to register and complete the test. Parental enforcement of this requirement helps prevent student-athlete ineligibility. Baseline tests are due Friday, Aug. 6. Please direct any XLNTbrain questions to Lisa Gross. For further information about Sports Physicals and Baseline/Cognitive Testing, please click here


Per the Missouri State High School Activities Association all student-athletes who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 2 months (June-July 2021) and have not already completed the Return to Play Process must do so to be eligible to participate in fall sports. Once the initial screening has taken place, and the Return to Play Form completed, student-athletes must set up a time with Athletic Trainer, Lisa Brandorff to schedule and complete the required sessions. These items must be completed in addition to PRIVIT/XLNTbrain requirements. 


Prospective fall sports athletes may start their Return to Play with Coach Brandorff as soon as the completed MSHSAA Return to Play Form is submitted to the STA Athletics department.
