Sport Signups (to be completed by student-athlete):
All student-athletes that are interested in playing a spring sport need to complete the appropriate "google signup form" below. This form can ONLY be completed through an Amherst student account. All forms need to be completed by April 29th.
- JV & Varsity Spring Sports Signup Form (HS Students Only)
- Modified Spring Sports Signup Form (MS Students Only)
Any 7th or 8th grade student-athlete that is interested in trying out for a JV or Varsity level sport must pass the "APP" process. This process begins with coach recommendation and parent/guardian consent. See the Athletic Placement Process page for more information.
Parent/Gaurdian Consent (to be completed by parent in parent portal)
Student-athletes interested in playing a spring sport need to be registered in Aspen (parent portal) and medically cleared to participate by the school nurse and/or district medical director. Parents/Guardians are required to complete athletic consent forms via Aspen. The deadline to register is April 29th. For instructions on how to complete parent/guardian athletic consent forms in Aspen, click the link below.
All student-athletes must have a physical exam on file with the school health office. Amherst CSD does accept and recommend physical exams be completed by your child's Primary Care Provider (PCP). On December 17, 2020 we received a memo from the NYSED that allows physical exams dated for the 18-19 & 19-20 school year to be accepted for any sport season during the 2020-2021 school year. Note, for physicals that are dated more than 30 days prior to the start of the spring season, an updated Interval Health History form must be submitted to the school nurse prior to participation.
Any student that has previously tested positive for Covid-19 must provide a note from their PCP clearing them to practice and play prior to participation. These notes can be sent directly to the school nurse.
