Shorecrest, an independent, will join the Sunshine State Athletic Conference this fall to have a shot at the postseason. After a couple years of struggling with depth, the Chargers have close to 30 players on the spring roster. That means fewer players going both ways. And after last year's encouraging 6-3 season, Shorecrest should be competitive in its new conference.
The FHSAA revised their medical forms and you can find them on the Athletic Forms page of Shorecrest.org for the 2016-2017 School Year. The following 3 forms are REQUIRED for participation in Athletics for the 2016-2017 school year.
