Athlete Requirements for Sports Participation

Each student athlete must have the following COMPLETED BEFORE an athlete will be allowed to participate in any Belvidere School District athletics.

Online Athlete Registration

Each student athlete must complete the athletic registration process online at http://il.8to18.com/belviderenorth. Through this process both parent and student athlete will acknowledge reading and accept the implications in the Code of Conduct, IHSA Eligibility Rules, IHSA Sports Medicine Consent and Acknowledgement, District 100 Drug Testing Policy & Procedure, Parent/Guardian & Athlete Release.

Current Physical Examination

Each student athlete must have a current physical exam form or statement from his/her doctor indicating that he/she is physically fit to participate in sports.

This means no student will be allowed to try out or participate in any sport unless a physical exam is completed and turned into the Athletic Director’s office at North High School. This sports physical can reveal medical problems such as heart murmurs, high blood pressure or other serious conditions that need to be treated before a student participates in a sport. Sports physicals are good for 13 months from the date the physical is completed.

A 9th grade physical may be used as a sports physical; however, a sports physical may not be used as a 9th grade physical.

Impact Concussion Testing

A student athlete will be required to complete the impact concussion testing prior to athletic participation. The test is a computerized test that sets a baseline. Should an athlete receive a concussion, the athlete will need to exceed this baseline in order to be cleared to participate.

Please note that ONLY incoming freshman, new students and students that have not already been tested need to attend a testing session.

Test sessions are available prior to the start of each sports season in conjunction with the parent/athlete meeting.

Athletic Fee

An athletic fee will be assessed per sport and will be collected after a student is rostered on a team. All payments will be collected using the PushCoin fee payment program.

Fees: 1st Sport - $75.00, 2nd Sport - $75.00 & 3rd Sport – Free

Once ALL the registration processes have been completed, the athletic office will verify academic eligibility, clearance from prior sports/seasons, Impact concussion test completion and that the physical is on file. Athletic participation clearance will be sent to coaches prior to the first practice/tryouts.

Parent/Athlete Meeting

All athletes and his/her parents/guardians must attend the PRE-SEASON MEETING before the beginning of the fall, winter or spring seasons. This meeting is a rules meeting presenting the District 100 Code of Conduct and athletic policies. The pre-season sports specific portion of the meeting is designed for the parent/guardian to meet with the coach before the start of the season. If you are unable to attend the meeting, the student athlete and parent/guardian should contact the Athletic Office for information missed at the meeting regarding the Code of Conduct and athletic policies. The sport specific information distributed at the meeting must be obtained from the coach.

Drug Testing

As a condition of participation in school interscholastic competition, an athlete will be liable for the drug testing program outline below.
