Registration Fees incurred by the sporting organisations must be paid in full to SGHS prior to a sport starting.  Please refer to SGHS Payment Policy on our Permission Forms page on this website, or click HERE to view.

Question: What if my child is not able to make a practice or game day? 

If possible, please make sure you give the Coach/Manager or our Director of Sports 24 hours’ notice if your child is not able to make game day. This allows enough time to find another player to fill in. 

Question: What if my child loses or damages part of her uniform?
All uniforms and equipment checked out to the student are the responsibility of the student. Any uniform or equipment that is lost will be billed to the student at replacement cost.  A student may not participate in another sport, until all equipment issues have been resolved.
