Tryouts and Important Dates

Completed Interval Health History forms (Sports Triplicate) and a current Physical Exam (within the last calendar year) must be turned in at the Nurses Office prior to sports tryouts.*   As a reminder, there are no physical exams offered at McQuaid.

The completed Interval Health History must be signed by both parent and student.  The form may be mailed, faxed, emailed, or hand delivered to the Nurses Office, but it must be submitted at least one week PRIOR to the tryout.  A new Interval Health History has to be completed every time a sport is done.

Summer 2018 Clearance Dates: 

Wednesday, August 8, 2018: 10:00am-3:00pm
Monday, August 13, 2018: 7:30am-3:30pm
Tuesday, August 14, 2018:  8:00am-2:00pm
Wednesday, August 15, 2018:  8:00am-2:00pm

The Nurse will also be in the office for the first day of EACH tryout, approximately one half hour before that tryout begins. Please do not wait until the last minute for clearance, as your son may not be eligible for tryouts if the necessary paperwork is not in order.

*If you do not wish to come into the school for clearance, you may fill out the triplicate form and submit it by mail along with an up-to-date physical form (within the last year).*  If the athlete has any outstanding injuries, a clearance note from the doctor should accompany these forms.  If all those requirements are met – the athlete will be cleared.

*NEW FOR 2018:  There is an EXACT form that must be used by your son’s doctor for physical exams. Click HERE for more info*
