3 EASY STEPS TO SIGN UP FOR SPORTS! Step 1: Student-Athlete Registration
In 2020 FCPS launched a new process for each school to register student-athletes for athletic seasons. We are excited about this new platform as it allows students and their families to have a central location for completing required documents. On the site, you will be asked to register your family once, receiving a username and password. You will then have the ability to register by season and student to complete emergency care information as well as concussion education. The site also has the ability to be translated into any language.
Step By Step Directions for completing the online registration are here: EnglishSpanish Step 2: VHSL Athletic Physical
Prior to participation in sports at Justice High School, students must submit a completed VHSL physical form (including medical insurance information).DO NOT submit the physical form to your coach. The physical form should be turned in to the athletic training office or the activities office. It is not recommended that you drop off forms in the main office, but if you choose to do so, please ask them to put them in Mr. Berg's mailbox. Alternatively, you can scan your forms as a PDF file and email them to Mr. Berg. Do not send image files (jpeg, png, gif, etc.).
2021-2022 VHSL Physical Form - Physical forms must be dated by the physician no earlier than May 1, 2021 to be valid for the 2021-2022 school year. Only the "Revised January 2021" version of the VHSL form is acceptable. Please make sure all lines are completed and all boxes are checked. Parent/Guardian signatures are required in three places. Student signatures are required in two places. The physician must indicate the appropriate participation level for the student as well as sign and date the form on page 3. Incomplete physical forms will result in a delay in the student's ability to participate in their sport.
Student Accident Insurance - As indicated on page 4 of the VHSL physical form, all student-athletes are required to have medical insurance. If the student is not covered by a family insurance policy, K&K Insurance Group has student accident insurance coverage available for purchase by parents. Additionally, even if you have other coverage, this plan can help fill expensive gaps caused by deductibles and co-pays.
There are three types of insurance that K&K offers:
At School Coverage - Provides coverage for injuries sustained at school or during school sponsored athletics and activities until the end of the regular school term
24 Hour Coverage - Provides coverage for injuries sustained all year long; 24 hours a day until one year after the date the school year begins.
High School Football Coverage - Provides coverage for injuries sustained while practicing or participating in High School Football. All football players who are not covered under another insurance policy with their family, must purchase football coverage. Football coverage does not provide coverage for any other sports. Students who intend to play football plus another sport, should purchase the football insurance plus "at school" or "24 hour" coverage.
If you choose to purchase insurance through K&K, you will receive an insurance card (see below) via email attachment from the company. This will need to be submitted along with the VHSL physical form as verification of insurance coverage. Step 3: COVID vaccination requirement
Beginning November 8, FCPS requires student-athletes be vaccinated against COVID-19 for the winter and spring sports seasons. Students who are 16 years of age or older (age as of November 8 for Winter Season) who are unvaccinated and do not have either a medical or religious exemption will not be able to participate in team activities. Unvaccinated students who are 12 -15 years of age who do not provide a weekly negative Covid-19 test will not able to participate in team activities.
Proof of COVID vaccination can submitted in person to the athletic training room or activities office or emailed to Mr. Berg. Additional forms
Emergency Care Form - Emergency care information is now collected via the online registration system. However, some coaches may also require a paper version of the emergency care form. This form should be turned in to the individual sport coach if necessary. Additional Forms - Additional forms specific to each team may also be required. Please check with the specific sport's coach for details regarding other forms that may be required.
