Student-Athlete Forms

In order to streamline the collection of the necessary forms from the student-athletes, we have prepared them in electronic form. We also provided an explanation of how the school's secondary insurance policy works, and an explanation of why each of the four forms is needed. Below are the PDF versions of the paperwork needed from ALL student-athletes.
Our goal is to collect ALL forms at physicals for new student-athletes or a team meeting preceding the first practice for all returners. These forms must be completed fully and turned in prior to the student-athlete participating in any organized team activity. Please make your student-athletes aware of this fact.
