7th and 8th Grade
Emerson & Da Vinci Sports Program

With this year being somewhat uncertain, please be sure to get ahead of the game and get those physicals done and paperwork submitted so you are ready! See below for the Sports Packet and the items you will need.

Emerson Junior High is part of the Yolo County Athletic League (YCAL).  This league includes Emerson Jr. High/Da Vinci Charter Academy, Holmes Junior High, and Harper Junior High in Davis, Winters Middle School in Winters, Esparto Middle School in Esparto, Lee Jr. High and Douglass Jr. High in Woodland, and CA Jacobs Middle School in Dixon.

All athletes that sign up prior to the 1st day of practice will be allowed to participate so long as they meet the following requirements:

  • maintain a 2.0 GPA with no F’s
  • be in good disciplinary standing at school
  • have the ATHLETICS PACKET, which includes a current physical form, on file with the athletic director prior to the 1st day of practice

Physicals must be signed and stamped by your doctor no more than two months before the start of the school year and are valid for the entire year.  Please plan accordingly and book your doctor’s visits in advance. All forms can be found in the front office or on the resources section of this page.

9th Graders Who Wish To Join Athletics

All 9th-grade athletes participate on athletic teams at Davis Senior High School. Please refer to the DHS Athletics website for all information.

2023-2024 DSHS Athletics: For 23-24 DSHS Athletics, sports physicals should be dated 6/1/23 or after. Please remember when you get your sports physical from your doctor’s office, they must put an office stamp on your form.
9-12 athletes need to register at www.homecampus.com  One of the steps is to include their completed sports physical form. If they are unable to complete this step, they can continue on with the registration and I can add it for them. You can send the physical to me if it is turned in to you…but…if there is no registration…they are not signed up for sports!

Fall Sports: For Fall tryout info (and all things DSHS Athletics), refer to the athletics page of the DSHS website:  https://dshs.djusd.net/athletics. Fall sports start early!
