Impact Testing Sessions

The school provides baseline and post tests for concussion management through a program called Impact.  It has been our goal to baseline test all students Grades 7-12 every two years.  The baseline test is good for two years since the experts say that the adolescent brain is ever growing and changing at this time in life.  We mandate the testing for all our athletes and ask when you registering for a sport to be sure your child has had a baseline within the last 2 years and that it will be good through the respective season of play.

This year alone we have tried to keep up with the 2 year baseline by testing all juniors during their Wellness Classes.  We have also baseline tested all of the 7th and 9th graders in their wellness classes.  If your son or daughter was absent or submitted an invalid test, they will have to makeup the test on their own by requesting a session with our Athletic Trainer and Wellness teacher Mr. Brian Bellinger.

Please note that in order to get a green eligibility card for Spring Sports a valid test needs to be taken prior to the Spring Pre-Season Meeting on March 11 at 6pm

Mr. Bellinger will be running 2 sessions on March 5 & 7 from 2:30-3:30pm in the Career Tech Computer Lab.  Please email him to sign up at bbellinger@slrsd.org.

SIGN UP FOR SPRING SPORTS ONLINE NOW!

Given the snowstorm bearing down on us and the Red Sox leaving yesterday to begin spring training I couldn't think of a better time to open up our online spring sports registration.  Besides, now you have plenty of time including February vacation to get this done.

If you know the routine, just go ahead and click on the BIG BLUE BUTTON on the right hand side of this blog.  If you'd like to understand the registration process a little more in detail, read on...........

The registration process to play a high school sport can be confusing and downright daunting for all involved, so I thought I would explain what goes on behind the scenes in the athletic department office 3 times a year year.  First off, you have to understand that we are ending one season and moving into the next which includes a turnover of our coaching staff as well as our athletes.  We are simultaneously organizing a school wide awards night, training our spring coaches, and moving through the tournament with some winter teams. Let's suffice it to say that it is busy, but it gets done with a little help and cooperation from you.

The registration process:
We need everyone to register right now ( deadline 3/3/13 11pm) and once this happens we can check the following to be sure an athlete is eligible:

Report Cards
Discipline Hours owed
Athletic Equipment Owed
Age of Athlete (max 19 prior to Sept. 1, 2012)
Transfer from another school?
Foreign exchange program
Impact test within 2 years
Valid Physical within 13 months
User fee collected
Check on 4 year eligibility limit
Concussion training

I'm probably missing something here, but you get the idea.  If everyone registers early we can check all of these requirements AND prepare our  GREEN CARDS all in time for the Spring Pre-season Meeting on March 11, 2013!

And what is a GREEN CARD ANYWAY?  It is the card that tells a coach that the athlete is fully eligible, green means GO!
