(This information has been handed and emailed to athletes)
Dear Athletes and Families:
We are excited to announce that we are offering the convenience of online registration for our sports programs through partner company, FamilyID (www.familyid.com). FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to register for our programs, and helps us to be more administratively efficient and environmentally responsible.
Parents/guardians register through FamilyID, entering accurate and up-to-date health history for each sport in which a student athlete participates. This provides the school athletic trainer with the most current information regarding concussions, injuries, or circumstances that may affect a student athlete since their last physical examination and/or sports season. Enrollment in FamilyID indicates parental consent for participation.
TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR ATHLETICS:
1.All student athletes intending to participate in school sports are required to receive an athletic physical with their own physician. SBRHS will not be offering free physicals before each sports season. The physical exam will cover the student for 13 months from the exam date. A student's eligibility will terminate once a physical has reached the 13 month limit. (MIAA Handbook, part 56.1)
2.Students may not participate in tryouts, practices, or games without a medical clearance from the athletic trainer; which includes registration on FamilyId, completing Impact Testing and having an up to date physical. All of this must be completed and/or passed into the main office at 625 County St. Somerset, MA 02726 - Attention Susan Medeiros - by March 5th, 2018. Paperwork received after March 5th will need 24 hours to be processed and clearance not guaranteed for pre-season start dates. The school nurse and athletic trainer reserve the right to require a specific medical clearance from a specialist (orthopedist, neurologist, cardiologist, etc.) based on the updated health history.
3.For legal reasons, official paperwork from a physician's office may not be altered or falsified by a student and/or a parent/guardian. This includes but is not limited to dates, signatures or content. Further, students are not allowed to sign or forge where a parent/guardian signature is required. Falsifying a student's medical record is criminal in nature and will not be tolerated. Infractions will affect the student's participation in his/her sport.
NOTE: Faxed copies of physical exams or medical clearances must be faxed directly from the examining physician's office, not by a parent/guardian, in compliance with MA DPH guidelines. Please fax to the Main office at 508-324-3118 Attention: Susan Medeiros.
COMPLETE ONLINE CONCUSSION COURSE:
The state law requires that student/athletes along with their parent(s)/guardian(s) complete the concussion course. During registration you will be asked to sign off that you have completed one of these courses.
