All the Athletic Forms Needed to Participate
In order to compete in sports and some activities, students must fill out the following athletic forms.
Any student engaged in athletics must have a current physical exam. Students cannot practice or tryout without a current exam. Of course, this includes cheer and dance teams. We encourage you to see your child’s physician to schedule the necessary sports physical soon. Additionally, please insure your child’s shots are current. Bring the physical form to the doctor’s appointment. Ask the doctor fill to out the form. Naturally, turn in completed forms to the main office before the sports season begins.
In April of 2011, the Concussion Awareness Act was signed into law to protect student-athletes. It is true that dangers of concussions are often not recognized, not diagnosed, or mismanaged. To assist with prevention, parents and student-athletes, must read and sign the Concussion Form.
In similar fashion, potential dangers associated with sports participation exist. Consequently, injuries are a possibility even with the best coaching, the best protective equipment, and strict observance of rules. In filling out the consent form, parents acknowledge the risk and give consent for treatment.
If you have any questions, please call our Activities Director, Mike Dempsey, at 402-734-2000.
