ATHLETIC REGISTRATION FORM
I have attached the SJV Athletic Registration Form. To register for a fall sport, please complete this form and submit it with the athletic registration fee and uniform deposit. The athletic registration fee for fall sports is $65 and the uniform deposit is $75. Please write TWO CHECKS payable to SJV School. The $65 athletic registration fee check will be deposited to pay for athletic expenses. The uniform deposit will be kept on file and only deposited if an athletic uniform is not returned or damaged due to negligence. PLEASE also include your child's uniform size (pant/shirt) on this form.
It is very important that our student athletes receive a sports physical to ensure they are in good physical condition before beginning participation in athletics at St. Jean Vianney Catholic School. Attached is a copy of the LHSAA Medical History Evaluation and Medical Exam form. Please print this out and take it to your health
care provider for your son/daughter to get an annual sports physical. If it has been 12 months or longer since your son/daughter's last sports physical, he/she will not be allowed to participate in the SJV Athletic Program until this form is completed/signed by a parent and health care provider clearing the child to participate in athletics. Please turn this form into the school office to my attention after completion.
Attached is the SJV Athletic Handbook. Please familiarize yourselves with the information contained in this handbook and use it for reference if you have questions about our athletic programs.
Please print out the Athlete's Pledge form. Have your child read and sign the Athlete's Pledge, and return the form, along with the registration form, to my attention at the school office.
Please print out the Parent's Pledge form. Parents/guardians should read and sign the Parent's Pledge, and return the form, along with the registration forms, to my attention at the school office.
Again, please have athletics forms/fees/deposit turned into the school office no later than Friday, August 12 to ensure your athlete is eligible to play on a fall sports team. If you have any questions regarding SJV Athletics, please reply to this email. Thanks!
