Prior to participating in any KHS official team related functions (including pre-season training and tryouts), the student-athlete must complete the following in order to be medically eligible:
Concussion Management Study Consent and DOE Physical Examination for Athletes Form (4 pages): Acurrent Physical Examination for Athletes form must be on file to signify that the student-athlete has passed a physical examination within the last calendar year and in the opinion of the examining medical doctor, is able to compete in athletics. The physical is good for one year from the date of the examination and shall cover all sports available during that time frame. The Concussion Management Study Consent form must be completed before participation. Participation in the Concussion Management Study is optional; however, the form must be submitted and participation or non-participation must be indicated on the form. Student-athletes and parent/guardians must sign and date the form. This form must be resubmitted each year.
Student Participation and Parent/Guardian Consent, Release, and Assumption of Risk (CAR) and Emergency Information Form (2 pages): All student-athletes and parent/guardians must realize the risk of serious injury that may result from athletic participation. Student-athletes must have parental consent to participate in sports. This form is part of the pre-participation forms. This form must be completed for each sport, each school year. This form is good for one sport for one school year. This form is to be on file with the coaching staff at all practices, athletic contests, and team functions in the event of an emergency.
Concussion Baseline Test (for collision and contact sports only): ImPACT is a computerized exam that assists in the diagnosing and management of a concussion. All student-athletes participating in collision and contact sports are required to take a baseline test prior to participation. Athletic Trainers will coordinate a day/time for student-athletes to take the test and an announcement will be made via their coach or email. If the student-athlete is unable to make that date, they must contact the athletic trainers and reschedule the test. Baseline concussion tests are valid for two years from date of test. Baseline test may also be retaken if the student-athlete sustains a concussion within the two years.
