First, the coaches and athletes are glad that your daughter wants to be part of Saline Cross Country! It’s a great experience and we are glad that your daughter will be part of it this fall. For her to participate, a parent/guardian does need to complete several steps. The good news is that everything you need is right here. The bad news is that it does take some time and work to complete everything that is right here. So, to get started, click on the next section….
The rules for physicals are complex. Please review these notes carefully. 1. You cannot practice with the team without a completed athletic physical. 2. Your physical must be dated after April 15, 2015 to be valid for this fall. 3. Physicals from the 2014/2015 school year are no longer valid unless they are dated after April 15, 2015. 4. Your physical must be on the MHSAA form that is available outside of the Athletic Office’s door OR you must provide the MHSAA form in addition to your physical. If your physical is not on the MHSAA form, print out the MHSAA form and complete all sections except the part labeled “Physical Examination and Medical Clearance.” 5. To be considered “complete,” every single line must be completed. There may be no blanks. Use “NA” or “None” instead of leaving a line blank. 6. When the physical is complete, make two copies of it. Place one copy in the box outside the trainer’s office. Bring one copy to the team meeting at 7:00pm on Monday, August 10, in the HS Commons. Keep the third copy for your records. 7. If you had a physical completed at the school sessions or recently turned in your physical, still bring a copy to the team meeting at 7:00pm on Monday, August 10, in the HS Commons. 8. If you need a physical, schedule one today. If your family doctor cannot fit you in, consider using the clinic listed below, which requires no appointment and can complete the physical for $29.
