For each season of participation, a student must submit an online registration through our Family ID program prior to her first practice session. The consent portion of the form MUST be completed by a parent/guardian. Included in this form are acknowledgement of the student athlete handbook and the concussion legislation and opiate education required by the MA DPH.
2. Medical/Physical Exams
All students who plan to participate in athletics must have written proof of a current physical exam signed by a physician. Per DPH and MIAA regulations, physical exams are valid for 13 months. A student athlete will NOT be allowed to participate once an exam has expired. It is strongly recommended that an annual exam be scheduled in July or August of each year. Such an exam would cover a student for an entire school year.
A medical history questionnaire (including information of all past concussions) must be on file with the School Nurse submitted through Family ID
Students must complete the NFHS Concussion Awareness Course annually. The certificate of completion must be uploaded on Family ID.
3. Athletics Fee
Once rosters are established for each season, the Notre Dame Academy business office will invoice the family the applicable user fee for participation in athletics through FACTS. Fees must be paid within two weeks of the invoice date in order for the student-athlete to continue participating. Students with an outstanding balance from a previous season or year will not be allowed to try out for any sport.
