Raiders News · 2018-19 Tryout Requirements & NEW POLICY



Tryouts for the Fall 2018 season are just around the corner!
Per Prince William County School policy, in order to tryout for a sport, you MUST have both a current sports physical (dated on or after 5/1/2018) and current concussion training. Details on both of these requirements are below…

SPORTS PHYSICALS
A copy of the high school sports physical form can be found online at High School Physical Form 2017.  Please make sure that the form is filled out completely including all required signatures on all pages, and that page 3 is stamped by your doctor’s office. NEW POLICY for the 2018-19 school year — Please turn in all completed sports physicals to the Activities Office. We are located on the first floor of the building near the cafeteria. In the event that our office is closed, you may slide paperwork under the office door.

CONCUSSION TRAINING
High school students who are entering 9th grade and trying out for a sport for their first time in high school, or students who are new to Prince William County Public schools must attend a face-to-face concussion training WITH THEIR PARENT/GUARDIAN at one of the county’s high schools. Concussion training is required each year. Once a face-to-face high school concussion training has been attended, subsequent years concussion training may be completed online.
More information on concussion training can be found at Prince William County Schools – Concussion Information and a full list of the 2018-19 Concussion Training dates can be found HERE.
*Correction to concussion training dates… The first concussion training session at SJHS will be on Wednesday, June 6, at 7:00pm.

SJHS will be holding our first concussion training session for the 2018-19 school year on Thursday, June 7 at 7:00pm in the Auditorium. Please arrive early, as the meeting starts promptly at 7:00pm and late entry is not permitted. Concussion training is offered on other dates at other high schools in the county and students may attend face-to-face concussion training at any school in the county. However, concussion training MUST be completed before a student tries out for sports.
