Other Information:  A sports physical, FHSAA Heat Illness/Concussion form, FHSAA Consent & Release from liability form and a notarized parent permission form are required for the student to participate.  The last 2 forms require you to put your medical insurance company on them.  If you don't have medical insurance, you can purchase school insurance for a minimal cost.  If this is a problem, let Coach Dwyer or Coach Bowman know and we will work with you.  A sports packet will all of these forms can be found in the front office, and the notarized parent permission form can also be completed in the front office.  All of these foirms and the physical take some time, so please do not put it off.  Start the process now.  All forms are good for 1 year.  If you have any questions contact Coach Dwyer at 218-8678 or or Coach Bowman at 833-3613 Ext 251 or
