    Given the current Covid 19 environment, Benilde-St. Margaret's School is requiring all students/athletes to adhere to following safety guidelines to reduce the risk or spread of the infection.

    When participating in any sports or activity camp or training sessions - families will be required to complete an online Covid 19 Release/Waiver form.  This form will be sent out by email prior to the start date of camp or training session.  We will only accept electronic versions of this Release/Waiver form.

    See below our BSM Athletics/Activities Covid 19 Summer Training Safety Procedures.

    Sports/Activities Registration -- What, When & How

    Information will be sent by email, in July,  to all current BSM Parent(s)/Guardian(s) and Students regarding the  the 2020-2021 school year relating to registrations for sports & activities. 

    There are several parts to this registration process.   Due to the requirement that these forms need to be completed on an annual basis - preference is that these forms are completed/taken care of before the school year begins.

    • Parent/Guardian Contact information
    • MSHSL Eligibility Statement

    Student(s):  (needs to be completed prior to starting EACH season)

    • Student Contact information

    Completion of these forms will assist the BSM Athletics/Activities Department in preparing for the upcoming sports/activities season and help to ensure that all coaches/advisors have complete and accurate lists of which students will be participating and are eligible to participate.
    Questions can be directed to
