PLEASE NOTE: Before any student can participate in tryouts for a sports team, the following requirements must be met:
PHYSICAL FORM(S): Student athletes must have a current physical on file in the Health Office in order to participate in Jonathan Dayton athletics. The New Jersey Department of Education Pre-participation Physical Evaluation Form must be used for the physical examination and is required once per year, to reflect a medical examination date within 365 days prior to the first practice session. Please note that Pre-participation Physical Evaluations must be completed by a health care provider who has completed the Student-Athlete Cardiac Assessment Professional Development Module.
The New Jersey Department of Education Health History Update Questionnaire must also be submitted for the 2nd and 3rd season of play (if you have already played a Fall sport), signed and dated 90 days prior to the first practice session.
Both the The New Jersey Department of Education Pre-participation Physical Evaluation Form and the The New Jersey Department of Education Health History Update Questionnaire can be downloaded and printed from FamilyID under the "links" section. Please use the links on the right side of the page to download and print these forms.
PLEASE NOTE: THESE FORMS MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE HEALTH OFFICES IN HARD COPY BY THE DEADLINE DATE REQUIRED FOR EACH SPORTS SEASON.
