    McKinley CLA Athletics

     

    In order for students to participate in McKinley CLA Athletics, students and parents need to read and review the following information.  Before participating, the following forms will need to be filled out and turned-in to the Coach Simmons:

    • A Completed MSHSAA Physical Form
    • A MSHSAA Pre-Participation Form

    https://www.mshsaa.org

    Concussion Awareness: In order to ensure the safety of your child, we ask that all parents and students take the online Concussion Course on the MSHSAA.org website located under sports medicine. The course is free to take online under the NFHS Learning Center Link: Concussion in Sports. You will need to create a login; the entire course takes about 30 minutes, but again, it is free.

    The free course is located at the following URL https://www.mshsaa.org/SportsMedicine/

    Physical Exams: Before any player can participate in practice and games, they must have a physical, the MSHSAA required physical form filled out, and turned into the Athletic Director. A physical is good for two full years from the completion date.

    The form (PDF) is located at the following: Physical Form

    Emergency Cards: All coaches need to have student emergency cards in case there is a medical emergency during a game or practice to ensure the safety of your child. The cards must be filled out before a player can participate practice and games. The cards are located with the Athletic Director.

    Uniforms: Once the season ends, students have one week to return their washed uniforms to their coach or to the Athletic Director before they lose their deposit. Student athletes and their parents are responsible for replacing any uniforms or loaned sports equipment (such as bags or warm ups) that are damaged or not returned.

    Insurance- SLPS/MSHSAA Catastrophic: The Board of Education does have insurance, but it is secondary. Whatever your primary insurance does not cover, the board’s secondary insurance may cover. If this situation does arise, the front office can assist you with finding the appropriate forms and paperwork.

    The MSHSAA pre-participation form will document your primary insurance information. The pre-pariticaption form can be found here: MSHSAA Pre-Participation Form
