2016-17 SPORTS SIGN-UPS NOW TAKING PLACE
Even though this school year isn’t over yet, it is time to start thinking about next year’s sports’ seasons!  Sign-ups for the 2016-17 school year are currently taking place.  To sign up for ANY sport for next year, please click on the link below or visit the Athletic Department page.   The deadline is May 6, 2016 at 3:00 p.m.
Please note that all athletes are required to have a physical prior to participating in any sport.  Students may have their physical completed by their personal Health Care Provider or by the school approved physicians, Dr. Singh and Dr. Nadella at the Shinglehouse Medical Clinic.  Sports physicals are available through the Shinglehouse Medical Clinic at a cost of $20.   These physicals will take place on June 7 and June 21, 2016 at the Shinglehouse Medical Clinic from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on those days.  Please indicate on the sign-up form if you would like a sports physical scheduled with the school’s physician at a cost of $20 or if you will schedule a physical with your Health Care Provider at your own expense.
Once sign-ups have been completed your child will receive a physical packet.  If you selected to have the school physicians conduct the physical, the date and time of your child’s physical will be noted in the packet.  Please be sure to submit the $20 payment to Mrs. Amy Unverdorben by May 13, 2016.  All checks should be made payable to the Oswayo Valley School District.
Private sports physicals may not be authorized earlier than June 1, 2016.  Please be sure your physician’s office has the most up to date physical packet if you are not using the one you received from the school.  Sports physicals completed at your Health Care Provider must be returned to Mrs. Unverdorben no later than July 22, 2016.  Faxed reports are acceptable and should be sent to 814-697-6375 with attention to Mrs. Amy Unverdorben.
