Athletes Registration: Gloucester High School and O'Maley Middle School Winter Athletics Registration:
PLEASE NOTE: This registration must be completed by a parent/guardian and a student-athlete together. Registration typically takes less than 15 minutes to complete; you must complete it at one "sitting" so ensure that both parent/guardian and student-athlete are present. Note that you must re-register each season and that the majority of the information will pre-populate once you select "participant name."
This registration program is exclusively for students in the Gloucester, MA Public Schools system, unless from a school district that is part of an approved co-op sport. Online registration allows for Physical Exams and Concussion Course Complete Certificates to be automatically downloaded to your registration. After submitting your registration, including downloading the Physical Exam and Proof of completion of online Concussion Course, you can submit your User Fee in the form of a check to the Coach or Athletic Director. You may also deliver it to the Athletic Director by using the mailboxes in the GHS Main Office, 32 Leslie O. Johnson Road, Gloucester, MA. Ask for assistance from the Main Office staff.
The following requirements must be met prior to participation in practice or try-outs:
• All student-athletes must download a copy of their most recent Physical Exam prior to the first day of practice. Physicals are valid for participation for 13 months from the date of the exam. Only student-athletes with valid physical exams will be permitted to participate in practices or competition. Parents/guardians are responsible for filling out this online registration completely and ensuring that all medical information concerning your child's health, medical concerns, injuries, medications, and allergies are reported, via this online registration to the Coach and Athletic Trainer.
• Parents/guardians and student-athletes together must take the necessary online concussion course. Please download a copy or picture of the Certificate of Completion of the online Concussion Course and make sure to save in the online registration. If you cannot download to the registration, please just print a copy and bring to the Athletic Director. You must read the necessary policies and sign the necessary agreements at the end of the registration regarding concussion protocol. All student-athletes that competed in the Fall 2019 season already completed the course, and are good for the entire 2019-20 school year.
