Athletic Participation Forms
In order to try out for a sport or participate in any capacity, all student-athletes are required to have a current PPE on file AND have completed the online Athletic Participation Forms through Appryse.
What is Appryse?
Appryse is a web-based replacement to the paper-based Athletic Participation Forms system previously used to track medical history, contact information, and Pre-participation Physical Exam (PPE) forms. Parents are able to enter all information online, including uploading or faxing the PPE form directly to Appryse. It also allows you to electronically submit Emergency Information and electronically sign the following required forms: Policies and Procedures, Awareness of Injury Risk and Consent to Treat, Concussion Parent/Athlete Information, Awareness of Sports Injury Risk, and Sudden Cardiac Arrest Information. We feel it will make this year much easier for parents, coaches, and most importantly, increase the safety of our students.
A few features:
- You will no longer need to bring a hardcopy or send school physical forms.
- The PPE form will have a bar code unique to your child.
- Appryse will contact parents to alert when their child’s physical is close to expiring.
- In the event of a medical emergency, athletic trainers and coaches will use a system to automatically notify you of an emergency via phone, email, and text message.
Enrolling in Appryse
All incoming freshman are required to enroll in Appryse by July 28, 2017, regardless of whether a student intends to join an athletic team. They will not be allowed to participate in SHC athletics at any capacity until they do. Do not wait until the last minute, as this will affect the student’s ability to participate in SHC Athletics.
