* July 25: Online registration CLOSES
* August 1: ALL PHYSICALS and ONLINE REGISTRATIONS are due for FALL SPORTS
*August 27: No more additions will be made and anyone missing paperwork will be removed from the team.
Registration is a two-step process so please follow these instructions:
Step 1 - Register your student online. If a student isn’t certain in which sport she or he would like to participate, parents should still register for the sport in which some interest has been expressed. The selection can always be changed prior to the beginning of the new sport’s tryouts.
PLEASE NOTE: If this is the first time you are registering a student, upon completion of the form, you will be asked to set up a Family Account. By doing so, future registration forms will be pre-filled for your convenience but allowing you to make changes if needed. Once a registration form has been submitted, a confirmation page will be displayed indicating that Step 1 has been completed.
If you have another student to register for a sport, please log into your account and then select the Athletic Registration Form so all your children are associated with your one Family Account.
Step 2 - Preparticipation Physical Evaluation and Health History Questionnaire
A valid athletic physical must be on file with the high school nurse prior to the start of each athletic season. Please select either option A or B below that pertains to your child:
A - If the athletic physical expires any time during pre-season practice or during the season, a new physical must be obtained to continue participation in the sport. HOWEVER, the parent still must complete the “Health History Update Questionnaire” and submit this one page form to the high school nurse during the enrollment period to complete Step 2.
B - If the athletic physical will expire prior to the first day of practice for the selected sport, a new athletic physical, including the “Health History Update Questionnaire”, must be submitted to the high school nurse during the enrollment period to complete Step 2.
Before any student can participate in any athletic program, the following requirements must be met:
- A parent/guardian, along with the student athlete, must complete this online registration.
- There must be a valid physical on file. Physicals are good for 364 days from the date of the exam. An athlete must have a valid physical on file on the date of the first practice. Students with expired physicals will not be permitted to participate.
- PHYSICALS: The Garfield School District will offer physicals for student athletes prior to each season. Please check the Athletics Webpage for more information.
- Athletes will be evaluated in the IMPACT Concussion System to determine a baseline.
- **Every Student needs a Health History Update for EVERY SEASON
***If there is a current physical on file with the Athletic Department Nurse, you are only required to complete the Health History Update Questionnaire Form. Please ensure all required signatures are provided.
