IMPORTANT INFO RE: SPORTS REGISTRATION
Students must register for sports tryouts using Family ID a minimum of TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE TRYOUT DATES.
Anyone who is not registered at least two weeks before the tryouts is not immediately guaranteed the required approval to participate in tryouts. Once registration has been entered into Family ID, the nurses then begin the approval process by certifying that the following are on file in the Nurses Office:
Sports registrants must have:

- No current physician-imposed restrictions from previous injuries or conditions
- Those with history of concussion must have on file in the Nurses Office a physician note clearing the concussion, and have completed the return to play protocol with the Athletic Trainer.
You may use Family ID at any time to check for when your physical expires. You will also get an email from Family ID site 60 days in advance of the expiration date of your physical.
To be completed at the start of each academic year and also when health status, address, or emergency contact numbers change.
