If you have a student who will be in grade 5 through 12 during the 2021-22 school year who wants to participate in a Middle School or High School sport, there are FIVE Athletic Forms that will need to be completed. (If the student had a physical last year, then there are FOUR -- you can skip the Physical Form 2021-22. There are no Alternative Year Cards anymore.)
Here is the list:
Athletic Emergency Card 2021-22 (required)
Concussion Acknowledgment 2021-22 - Student Athletes (required by students)
Concussion Acknowledgment 2021-22 - Parents (required by parents)
Physical Form 2021-22 (PDF version of all forms to take to doctor)
Print the Physical Form 2021-22 (PDF version) and take it to your physical exam. You can fill it out by hand before your appointment to save time. Your doctor will complete the paperwork, then it must be scanned/emailed, faxed, or physically mailed to the HS Office (or given to your coach on the first day of practice as a last resort) before the student can practice or play.
Alternative Year Cards
Some parents have asked about the old Alternative Year Cards. Those are no longer being used after COVID.
Instead, parents should fill out the first four forms every year. This ensures:
Everyone is familiar with the signs of concussion.
Everyone understands and follows the rules of the Co-Curricular Code.
The Emergency Card has the most up-to-date contact information for families so if there is a problem, the coach or trainer isn't trying to call an old cell phone number.
For High School students who want to participate in more than one sport during a season, you must complete the following form:
A Note About Fees
To Parents of students participating in Amherst High School / Amherst Middle School Athletics:
The Tomorrow River School District believes that involvement in school activities is an important part of the total educational opportunity in the Tomorrow River Schools. To offset expenses connected to extra-curricular activities in the district, the Tomorrow River School District will assess an athletic participation fee to all students who wish to participate in any sport that the high school or middle school offers. This fee is not new to our district, and most schools associated with the WIAA have charged participation fees to their athletes.
Grades 6 - 8: $25 per sport with a maximum of $50 per student per year
Grades 9 - 12: $50 per sport with a maximum of $100 per student per year
$150 maximum cost per family per year
Please contact Activities Director Shawn Groshek if you feel your family's income requires special consideration for the rates listed on this form.
Fees and all paperwork are required prior to the start of the sport season in which your son/daughter plans to participate. Participation may be denied until all fees are paid. Thank you for your cooperation.
