  • Sammie will evaluate all injuries that occur at practice and/or games that she is aware of.
  • If your child comes home complaining about an injury that is not a medical emergency, let their coach or Sammie know so she can evaluate it and make a referral if necessary.
    • Athletic trainers can save you money in the long run by being able to evaluate, rehabilitate, and treat a variety of sports injuries.
  • If you take your child to a doctor, please make sure your child has a doctor’s note to turn into their coach/Sammie, so we are aware of any restrictions/physician clearance.

Student-Athletes need a new physical for each school year dated after April 15th. Athletes need to have all forms completed in order to participate in athletics. Please go to the Important Athletic Forms section to get the physical forms. All necessary forms are:

            -Medical History

            -Physical Examination Form

            -Sudden Cardiac Arrest Acknowledgement

            -Concussion Statement

            -Consent for Athletic Participation & Medical Care


Athletes and their parents should complete the registration for DragonFly Max and fill out all required forms online. All forms can be completed electronically with the exception of the Physical Examination form that is signed by the doctor. This form will need to be uploaded (either a picture or a scan is fine as long as it is readable). This is our online paperwork system that we use to ensure every athlete is eligible to compete. This also gives our coaches and athletic trainer access to emergency contact information, allergies, medical conditions, etc. from the field/court.
