Old Colony Athletics Spring Coaches
This is to inform you of the necessary information and requirements in order to participate in the many in our fall sports program.
Registration: All student-athletes AND parents/guardians at Old Colony must register online at familyID.com if you have already registered a family member simply log onto your family account. All registrations for all spring sports should be completed by March 7, 2022. Please refer to the Athletic Department handbook/concussion training/and policies. This step must be completed each season the student-athlete competes in.
Physicals: Physicals are required by the MIAA for any student to participate in athletics across the state. Each physical is valid for 13 months from the date of the examination. (Please forward athletic physicals to firstname.lastname@example.org)
The proof of physical must include:
1. A date of exam
2. Indication that the athlete is in good health
3. The student-athlete is free of restrictions, and able to participate in interscholastic athletics
4. Physician's signature.
Student-athletes will also be required to bring in a doctor’s note after any visit to the physician, indicating whether a student is able/not able to participate in the sport.
When an injury occurs, parents are reminded to contact the school nurse at 508.763.8011 x 130 to schedule a reentry meeting into school.
At this time any medical documentation should be provided to the school nurse. This is done to ensure the safety of all student-athletes.
Grades: (MUST BE PASSING ALL COURSEWORK- SHOP/ACADEMICS) The eligibility to participate in all extracurricular activities (including Old Colony athletics) is determined by a student’s grades in shop and academics. At the end of the first and second trimesters, students’ report cards will be checked by their advisor. If a student is not meeting the eligibility requirement, he/she will not be allowed to participate for the following trimester. At the end of the school year, the cumulative average for the year will be used to determine eligibility for the fall.
If you have questions regarding the spring season, please find contact information for the head coaches below.
Each coach will provide team rules and practice/game information to each family.
We look forward to another successful spring season!
