Cheerleading Information Sheet
Any student that would like to participate in cheerleading tryouts need to have a completed sports physical turned in to their school nurse two weeks prior to the start of the practices. Failure to do so could result in your child not being eligible to participate in the practices and tryouts for cheerleading.
If this is their first sport of the 2017-2018 school year, they need to submit a completed Athletic packet (CIPPE) including Physician Physical.
If they have submitted an athletic physical and participated with another sport during 2017-2018 they do not need to submit a new athletic packet and physical. If they were not injured, they need to submit a Section 7 form. If they were injured, they need a Section 7 & 8 form.
Baseline Concussion Test(SAC)
A SAC test is a base line concussion test that the athletic training department can administer for free. To schedule a SAC test, you can call the Athletic Training office at 724-744-0580 and schedule a time to get that done. If you call, leave a message with the students name that needs the SAC Test. The best time to get this done is after school until 3:45 because they have games that start at 4:00 pm most days. The test only takes about 4 minutes to complete.
This year all registration will take place online through Family ID.
STUDENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
What is the Student Assistance Program?
The Student Assistance Program is designed to provide various services to meet your child’s social, emotional, behavioral, and academic needs.
The primary goal of the Student Assistance Program is to identify students at risk and help those students to overcome barriers in order for them to be successful in their everyday lives.
Another goal of the Student Assistance Program is to facilitate collaboration between home and school and provide interventions and/or referrals to internal or external support services in order to address student needs.
