UPDATE: Sports Permissions & Physicals

Student-athletes must have a physical on file that was completed within one year of the current sports season. So for fall sports, any physical dated Aug. 1, 2011, or later is acceptable. Those in need of an updated physical must submit theirs by Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012, in order to try out for a fall sport. The only exception to this rule are rising sophomores, ALL of whom need to submit an updated physical, as required by New York State.

Additionally, an updated health history form (permission slip) signed by the parent is needed for each sports season. According to New York State, these forms cannot be accepted by Kennedy Catholic earlier than one month from the beginning of the intended sports season. Therefore, no permission forms can be accepted until Monday, July 23, for fall sports tryouts. Our apology in advance, but any permission forms that have already been turned in must be resubmitted so
that an acceptable date is reflected.

Permission forms turned in on the day of tryouts may not be processed in time, and the student will have to wait to be cleared for play.
All incoming freshmen need their vaccine report sent in as soon as possible.

You can e-mail your completed physical form to the Health Office, or fax it to the attention of Judy Haight, RN, at (914) 232-3416. Again, permission forms cannot be accepted until Monday, July 23. Please call the Health Office directly at (914) 232-8571 with any questions or concerns you may have regarding the two forms.
