FINAL FORMS ATHLETIC REGISTRATION FOR THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR IS OPEN

 

Any Mt.Vernon student who anticipates participating in a high school sport during the 2020-2021 school year needs to have a registration completed on Final Forms.  If you are a returning student and have previously registered on Final Forms, you will only need to update the athlete’s information and re-sign the forms.  The link to access Final Forms is mtvernon-in.finalforms.com.

Physicals:  As a reminder, the IHSAA released the following information on April 22nd with respect to 20-21 Athletic Physicals:

“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic during the 2019-20 school year and the continued stress on the medical community, the Indiana High School Athletic Association, Inc. will waive the provisions of Rule 3-10 for the 2020-21 school year.  Effective immediately, valid physical and consent forms presented to member schools on behalf of the eligible students during the 2019-20 school year shall be valid during the upcoming 2020-21 school year.”

“Any athlete not having a valid IHSAA pre-participation examination (PPE) physical form on file from the 2019-2020 scholastic year is required to have a valid Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form completed prior to eligibility and competition.  This includes any student athlete coming from an out-of-state school must have a valid Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form completed on the official IHSAA form prior to eligibility.”  {Students transferring from an IHSAA member school to MVHS must submit their 2019-20 PPE or complete a new one.}

**During the Final Forms registration, you will be required to tell us if you want us to use your athlete’s 2019-20 physical or if you will be submitting an updated physical for the 2020-21 school year.

**In addition, Mt. Vernon High School will require all students who were referred to their family physician to get clearance prior to participation for the 2019 – 2020 school year, along with those who were under a doctor’s restriction at the time of school closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, to receive a new physical before becoming eligible to participate during the 2020 – 2021 school year.

Incoming Freshmen:  Unless you previously had a physical submitted on the official IHSAA form, you will need to submit a physical prior to the first practice.  Unfortunately, we will not be offering our free physical night this year, so you will need to see your primary care physician to get this completed.  On the last page of the Final Forms registration, you will be able to print the official IHSAA physical form to take with you to your appointment.

Please return all completed IHSAA Physical forms to the Athletic Office.  This can be done by mail (700 Harriett St., Mt. Vernon), email to luckettdm@mvschool.org or by fax (812) 833-2090.

NOTE for ALL athletes:  Current registration and physicals expire June 15, 2020!   Registration and updates in Final Forms, including physicals, must be updated prior to working out with any athletic team!!!   So…don’t wait…get your registration and physicals done now!!!

It’s a great day to be a Wildcat!!  #ALLIN #WeAreMV
