Interested in playing a sport this winter? Sign-ups are underway!

Sept. 21, 2017Are you interested in playing a sport this winter at Guilderland High School? If so, sign-ups are currently underway.

Fall sports start Nov. 6 and include boys'/girls' basketball, bowling, cheerleading, cross country skiing, gymnastics, ice hockey, indoor track, boys swimming and wrestling. (*Please note: Unified bowling starts Feb. 2018).

Students interested in playing a winter sport should pick up a sport sign-up packet from the high school nurses' office and return the completed packet to the nurses' office as soon as possible. The sport packet includes three forms: the School and Sport Physical Form, the Athletic Form and the Health History Form—all of which are also available online. Please note: The sport physical form must be completed on the GHS form. Students will not be able to try out or participate in practices without a sports packet cleared by the Nurses’ Office prior to Nov. 6.

The following forms need to be completed and returned to the Nurses’ Office by Nov. 6:
-- Department of Athletics Form (1/2 sheet), completed by parent/guardian;
-- Health History Form, completed by parent/guardian;
-- Physical Examination Form. Students need to come to the Nurses’ Office to check to see if they have a valid physical. The physical must be completed on the attached GHS form.

Students needing sports physicals should sign-up in advance with the high school nurses’ office for either:

Please note: Appointments may take up to one hour, so please plan accordingly. Physicals are also open to all students for working papers, tenth grade physicals, and new student physicals. If applicable, please bring glasses or wear contacts for the eye exam. Students may have physicals done by their own doctor, but the physical must be completed on the GHS physical form and reviewed by the school nurse before a student can sign-up for a sport or attend practice. Students will not be able to try out or participate in practices without a sports packet cleared by the Nurse’s Office. The Department of Athletics form and the Health History form should be handed in ASAP; the Physical Examination form must be handed in before try-outs/practice starts.  

Please note: If a student is seen by a doctor for any injury, accident or serious illness, the parent/guardian must notify the school nurse. This is required whether or not the injury/illness occurred on school grounds. Upon his/her return from an injury, the student must have either a written release or restriction from the attending physician, which should be given to the school nurse for review; a copy will be sent to the Coach, and the original kept in the student’s health records.

For more information, call the Guilderland High School nurses’ office at 861-8591, ext. 3030.
