Tryouts and Important Dates

Completed Interval Health History forms (Sports Triplicate), the UR Medicine HIPPA form, and a current physical exam (within the last calendar year) must be turned in to the Nurses Office prior to sports tryouts.  A new Interval Health History form must be filled out any time a different sport is done.

The Interval Health History form can be found linked below, and must be filled out, then scanned and emailed, or faxed to the Nurses Office AT LEAST one week before tryouts.  There is also an additional HIPAA form for student-athletes that is required by UR Medicine, who supplies us with our Athletic Trainer. In order for our trainer to be able to see your son (whether for something as simple as taping an ankle for a practice, or as serious as an injury during a game), this form must be filled out and returned to the Nurse before tryouts, as well. This is for UR Medicine for McQuaid athletes specifically, and is in addition to the HIPAA form McQuaid has on file for all students. This form is also linked below.

*The Nurses Office will accept forms for fall sports during the summer months.
