The ECS 2013 mandatory student-athlete meeting will take place on Thursday, Aug. 17 at 7 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. Please note there are some changes regarding the completion of all required paperwork!

The required Health Appraisal form and Interval Health History form are available on the school website (under Athletics, or Nurse) or at the school offices. Students are asked to complete and turn in those two forms to one of the district offices prior to the breakout meeting Thursday, Aug. 15.

Students are required to have necessary paperwork completed in order to practice opening day sessions.

This meeting is mandatory for student-athletes and a parent/guardian of the student-athlete(s) who plan to participate in sports programs in the fall of 2013 at Ellicottville Central School.

The purpose of the meeting is to ensure necessary eligibility criteria for participation (attendance and academic policies), confirming necessary paperwork with regard to Health Appraisal and Health History forms, and verification of a current IMPact Concussion Management Test (yearly baseline test).

Student-athletes who intend to participate in a fall sport will then break out into informational team settings with their coaches.

Fall sports include football, boys’ and girls’ soccer, volleyball, cheerleading and swimming.

Fall sports practices begin Monday, Aug. 19.
