Ellicottville Central School (ECS) will be holding its 2014 fall sports meeting for student athletes on Thursday, June 26 at 6 p.m. in the High School cafeteria.

This meeting is mandatory for student-athletes and a parent/guardian of the student-athlete(s) that plan on participating in sports programs in the Fall 2014 at ECS.  The purpose of the meeting is to ensure necessary eligibility criteria for participation (attendance and academic policies), confirm necessary paperwork with regard to Health Appraisal and Health History forms, and verify a current Impact Concussion Management Test (yearly baseline test).  Student-athletes that intend on participating in a fall sport will then break-out into informational team settings with their coaches.  Fall sports include football, boys’ and girls’ soccer, volleyball, and cheerleading .

Some changes with regard to completion of all required paperwork!  Required Health Appraisal and Interval Health History forms 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 after July 22, but prior to the week of August 4.  Mrs. Kim Watt – School Nurse, will be in the week of August 4-8 to evaluate all student Health History forms and confirm that students have necessary paperwork  required in order to practice opening day sessions on Monday, Aug. 22.
