We value athletics as an important life experience for all participants at BC High, teaching and stressing teamwork, respect, hard work, and humility. The BC High Athletic department believes these 4 core values are what define the coach and student-athlete. Our coaches are teachers in every sense of the term, with emphasis on how the student-athlete develops in a particular sport.
Give Your All
We regard the playing field as an extension of the classroom. The exceptionally dedicated men and women of our coaching staff serve as outstanding role models, helping their players grow as athletes and as men. Whether they're giving their all on the ice, the court, the field, or the track, our students compete with grit, dignity, and integrity. Athletics provide an unmatched testing ground for building students' skill, mental fortitude, and sportsmanship. As they come together in victory (or in defeat), our athletes form bonds of friendship that endure long after graduation.
Concussions are taken very seriously at BC High. Please report any suspected concussion or head injury right away to the school by contacting the athletic trainer or nurse. Also, please complete a Report of Head Injury Form on Family ID.
Both you and your son will be required to do the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) concussion education video. You must register and order the course AT NO COST here: NFHS Concussion Video Please note that this educational video is for parents and students, also. It is also available in Spanish. By Massachusetts law, the concussion educational requirement must be completed once a year for sports participation. At BC High we require all students to complete the video education each year just before fall sports and the start of school.
Athletes and their parents must inform their coach prior to the beginning of the season, of any history of head injury and must complete the BC High Report of Head Injury Form in Family ID. Report of Head Injury Form
Further information about the concussion policies of BC High may be found in the BC High Handbook.
Physical Examination Requirement
For a student athlete to remain eligible to participate in a sport, a physical exam must be submitted which is dated within 13 months of playing for tryouts and the entire season. THIS FORM MUST BE UPLOADED TO HIS FAMILY ID REGISTRATION. Directions for uploading the form are here: Uploading a Form to Family ID Also, please make sure that you upload a new physical exam for your son exam by the 13 month date if it will expire while he is playing a sport. Students will become ineligible if their physical date exceeds 13 months while playing.
The MIAA regulations regarding physical exams are:
- All students must pass a physical examination prior to participation in High School Athletics. A physical exam covers the student for 13 months from the exam date. A student’s eligibility will terminate once a physical has reached the 13 month limit.
