Haverford HS Required Athletic Forms

All students trying out for fall sports must be registered via FamilyID by their parents. Part of the registration process is submitting the Section 7: Certification of Authorized Medical Examiner (physical form). Physicals must be dated on or after June 1st, 2021.

You MUST upload the section 7 form when registering your child. If your child participates in a winter or spring sport you DO NOT have to upload the section 7 form when registering your child for those seasons if you uploaded it for the fall season.

A few reminders:

  • Any physical turned in 6 weeks prior to the first practice day in any sports season a family must complete a Section 8: RE-Certification by parent/guardian.

  • We request that you submit your completed registration 5 days prior to the first tryout date in order for the athletic staff to carefully review your student-athlete’s medical history. 

  • There may be a delay to your son or daughter’s tryout period if the physical is submitted on the day of tryouts.
