Important information for students interested in playing Fall Sports

Any student who wishes to participate in fall athletics must complete the following:

  1. A physical examination completed prior to the first practice and on file with the nurse.
  2. A health history form completed and turned in to the school nurse or the Athletics office prior to the start of practices.
  3.  A signed Athletic Code of Conduct form turned into their coach prior to the first competition.

Physical and/or COVID-19 Vaccination Information

A physical may be obtained from a family doctor or through Whitney Young. Whitney Young will be open for physicals and/or COVID-19 vaccines (must be at least 12 years old) on August 17 and August 24 at Watervliet High School from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. To schedule an appointment, please call 518-407-0172. If no appointments are available, the student must obtain a physical from their family physician.

Health History Forms

Health history forms will be sent to all student email accounts and will be available at the Watervliet Jr/Sr High School for pick up. Forms are to be completed in full with a parent/guardian. Any questions that are checked “yes” must have an explanation for that question added in the comment area on the back. Forms can be returned to the Athletics office or the Nurse’s office anytime prior to the start of practices. The school nurse will be available on August 16-17 and August 24.

Code of Conduct forms

Each student-athlete will be given a Code of Conduct at the end of their first practice. The full Code of Conduct should be reviewed with a parent/guardian, signed and returned prior to the first competition.
