Athletics

In order to participate in any athletic team, students must have a minimum 2.0 grade point average
and their Sports Participation Forms on file in the Front Office.

A separate Consent for C3Logix Concussion Baseline Testing form may be downloaded from the Okaloosa County School District website HERE

Any student interested in trying out for a sport needs to have all their paper work turned in to the office before they may participate in practices or tryouts.

Please keep a copy of the forms for yourself, as well.

Ruckel Athletes Baseline Concussion Testing
Wednesday, June 12 • 1:00 to 2:00 pm • Niceville High School
Okaloosa County School District strongly recommends a valid and complete neurocognitive baseline test be established for each high school and middle school student-athlete prior to "in-season" sport participation. However student-athletes are required to have a valid baseline test on file or an official form on file declining testing.
Student-athletes who are unable to attend their own school's testing day will be allowed to go to another location, as per the instructions outlined below.

A C3Logix baseline test is considered valid for two years. Student-athletes who have never been tested, as well as those last tested prior to June 2018, need to be tested this year. Baseline tests are recommended for all sports' student-athletes (including golf, cross country, swimming, cheerleading, etc.).

Arrival Times: See your school's Athletic Trainer, Coach, or Athletic Director to confirm sports' scheduled times

Note: All student-athletes must have a SIGNED consent form to participate in baseline testing -- Download the form HERE

Site Times: No testing will begin outside of the listed times. Anyone who is in line when check-in is closed will be tested

Questions: Call your Athletic Trainer or Sports Medicine Outreach at 850-916-8673 (in advance) or 850-598-7456 (day-of testing)

Make-up Dates: Any student-athlete unable to attend their school's testing date may come to any other testing site during the visitors' slot from 11:00 - 11:30 amONLY!

Athletic Tryouts are closed to parents, guardians, visitors, and other spectators. Only students participating in tryouts will allowed on field or in the seating area. Thank you for following the guidelines.


A reminder to 6th grade parents that your child will need a Hepatitis B vaccine, a Tdap vaccine and their second MMR vaccine before he or she begins 7th grade. These can be obtained privately or at the Okaloosa County Health Department at no charge. Please bring proof of this immunization to the school so
it may be entered in the system before their 7th grade school year. You may wish to do this at the same time as your annual sports physical. See the Ruckel
School Nurse Page for details.
