The Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) has recently added new requirements that must be fulfilled by each athlete before they may begin their first practice each year. These include a course on Concussions and Head Injuries.
Additionally, the Turner Board of Education has approved all student-athletes to participate in IMPACT Testing. The IMPACT Test acquires a baseline of the student-athlete and in the event that an athlete were to receive a concussion during the year, they can be retested and the results compared. Both of these new requirements will be conducted at the school by the Athletic Trainer and at no cost to the athlete.
Welcome to the Turner High School Athletics department,
Home of the Turner Golden Bears!
THS Athletics is guided by six pillars of success:
- Student-Athlete: "Student" comes first, then the "Athlete".
- Communication: Communication will be emphasized in all aspects of running our programs.
- Team: Everyone on the TEAM has a role. We will all emphasize and work as a cohesive unit.
- Character: Each coach will emphasize the building of character in the programs.
- Sportsmanship: Win or lose with class, and always demonstrate respect for self, opponent, officials, staff and community.
- Competition: Each coach and student-athlete will emphasize competing and playing hard.
In order to participate in athletic programs at THS, families must complete the Athletic Physical Packet. Students will not be able to practice or compete until the entire physical packet has been completed and returned to the Athletics department.
