Re-Certification by Parents

When do I need to fill out a Section 8: Re-certification Form?

  •  If your student’s sports physical was performed more than 6 weeks prior to the start of the current sports season (applies only to Winter and Spring Sports), a Section 8 Form will need to be completed and signed by a parent/guardian and the student.  This form needs to be turned in prior to the first day of practice.
  • Example: If you participate in a Fall Sport and are planning to participate in a Winter Sport…you and your parent/guardian will need to fill out, sign, and turn in a Section 8 Form prior to the start of the Winter Season.
