Success Beyond the Classroom (SBC) Scholarships for Athletics and Marching Band Does your child plan to play sports or participate in the marching band?  There is scholarship money made available through the Success Beyond the Classroom Foundation (SBC) to assist in covering the Pay-to-Participate cost. SBC is a non-profit organization that raises funds to provide scholarships to qualified students in the district who wish to participate in athletics and/or their school marching band.  SBC members believe that extra-curricular activities help students learn and practice the skills needed for success in all areas of life.  To be considered for an SBC scholarship, students must submit and fully complete an application, which is available on the district and school websites. Administrators, Athletic Directors, and/or coaches at each building can help you locate the SBC application. Applications can also be found on the building and district websites.  For more information and deadline dates please visit  http://athletics.swcsd.us/SBC  or you may contact the school Athletic Director.  


Athletic Physicals
Physicals must extend through the entire season and may be obtained at your family doctor, CVS Minute Clinic (~$35), Walgreen's Care Clinic (~$35), The Little Clinic located in Kroger (~$29) or at district-sponsored physical nights (usually ~$10 at high school physical nights-first come, first served) . Check with your local urgent care center to see if they do sports physicals.   Check the SWCSD Web site for other  physical dates and locations during the summer months.  Schedule your  physical NOW to avoid the rush just prior to the athletic season.   

You may also contact the Ronald McDonald Mobile Clinic for physical appointments.
