2013-14 Sports Information

SPORTS PASS IS REQUIRED BEFORE YOU CAN BEGIN FIRST PRACTICE!  NO EXEPTIONS!

AHS NURSES WEBSITE MESSAGE:
CIAC requires each student athlete have a current physical on file prior to participating in sports. The physical is current for 13 months from the day in which it was performed, therefore, student athletes must have a physical on file in the AHS Health office every 13 months.

A State of CT Health Assessment (blue form) can fulfill this requirement, although not necessary after the 9th grade year. A Pre-Participation Sports Evaluation will suffice after grade 9.
The Pre Participation Sports Evaluation form can be downloaded on the AHS website, under Athletics and then follow the link to "forms".
Each season the student must obtain a "purple pass" from the nurses to give their coach which indicates they are medically cleared and their physical is current and on file. A white, temporary pass will be given to the athlete whose physical may expire during the season. It is then up to the student to have a physical performed before the expiration date and get the physical to the Nurse's office at which time a purple pass will be issued. PLEASE KEEP A COPY OF ANY PHYSICAL SUBMITTED TO THE HEALTH OFFICE FOR YOUR OWN RECORDS.

 

AHS nurses will be available to collect physicals and pass out purple "Passes to Play" on:
WEDNESDAY afternoon, August 13th (2-4 pm) AND
FRIDAY afternoon, August 22nd (4-6 pm

Physicals can be mailed to the Health office or dropped off in the Main 
office during the summer months. (Please keep a copy for yourself!). If accompanied by a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope, we will send you a "Purple Player Pass". Please indicate sport you will be participating in. We check our mailbox a few times during the summer.
