Welcome to Benson High School's online-only sports registration. This system provides convenience and efficiency for you, the coaches and the athletic office. After you sign up once, it's very easy to register for other sports or add siblings. This form must be filled out by the parent/guardian and athlete together. Fall sports practice starts August 19. Please select ALL sports your student plans to participate during the 2019-20 season.
Completing this online registration and having a current physical form on file is required before an athlete can practice or participate in pre-season workouts. OSAA rules mandate that all student athletes have a physical examination every two years and turn in a specific form.
The athletic fee is $205 paid to the Benson Bookkeeper. Each student is capped at two athletic fees per year.
If the athlete has not had a physical within the past two years or the physical is expiring, please schedule an exam and have your medical provider complete the required physical exam form (found in the links section on the right hand side of this page). We also have these forms in the Athletic Office. By Oregon law we need a hard copy of the completed physical form. You can submit your forms into the Athletic Office or email them to Scott Archer email@example.com. Parents should keep a copy of the physical.
If you would like options for getting a sports physical, see links to right. Portland Urgent Care (4160 NE Sandy) offers sports physicals for $25 - scheduled appointment and $30 for walk-ins.
PPS does not provide medical insurance for Athletics. If low-cost Student Health Insurance Coverage is needed, please see links to right. PIL: The sports fee is $205 per PIL sport. The cap is $410 per school year per athlete and $820 per family per school year. A reduced fee is available if you qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch. You can pay the PIL sports fee through School Pay or drop off payment at the Benson High School bookkeepers' office. If an athlete needs to quit a sport due to injury or academics three weeks or less into the season, a partial refund will be arranged.
Club Sports (Lacrosse, Skiing, Snowboarding): Fees, fee waivers, and refund policies vary by sport. Each club manages their registration separately.
