Athletic Department Digest/Athletic Code--STUDENT HANDBOOK (p 30)
This section is designed to provide students and parents with information about athletics and student activities. Please familiarize yourself with this information so that you and your parent(s) understand and accept responsibility for our rules and policies.
St. J. A. requires a physical examination a minimum of every year in order to participate in interscholastic athletics. Physical exams are at the expense of the individual, and a record of the physical must be on file in the Athletic Director’s office before a student is eligible to practice or compete. If the one year time limit expires during the season, the student will be denied participation until his/her physical is renewed. All players must have a current sports physical form on file with Mr. McGinn before they will be allowed to participate in practices or games. A physician's form, clearing an athlete for participation, can be faxed to the SJA Athletic Department at 751-2117. Physicians forms must be on the doctor's letterhead.
All players must have a signed medical release form on file with the school so that proper medical care can be given to an injured played when the injured player's parents/guardians cannot be contacted. All medical release forms are kept on site by all coaches at all times.
