FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –
ACS SPRING SPORTS REGISTRATIONS OPENS FEBRUARY 1
AKRON, NEW YORK (January 16, 2019) – Parents of students planning to participate in modified, JV or varsity sports are reminded that registration for spring sports teams will begin February 1, 2019. Registration takes place online through the Parent Portal. Online registration must be completed and a current sports physical must be on file with the Health Office prior to the start of spring sport practices (JV and Varsity) on March 4, 2019. The online registration will allow for printing of the NYS Required School Health Examination Form as well as the handbook agreement and the transportation permission form.
Parents of sports participants must register their child for athletics using the Parent Portal they are accustomed to using to retrieve student report cards and other school related information. A link to the Parent Portal is available at the upper right corner of the school’s website at www.akronschools.org. Once logged in to the Portal, click the “Sports Registration” tab on the left side of the opening page. Follow the steps to complete the form and print the final page. Both the parent and the student athlete must sign the athletic handbook affidavit and bring it to the team coach on the first day of practice or earlier.
Students must have a current sports physical on file with the Health Office. The new NYS Required School Health Examination Form should be used for all newly scheduled appointments for physicals. Sports physical forms should be submitted to the high school nurse in the MS/HS Health Office located in room E-106.
The new registration process for each sport season will eliminate the pink interval health assessment form that has been used in the past.
Questions regarding the new process may be directed to Mrs. Wendy Pazderski, Athletic Secretary, or to Mr. Stephen Dimitroff, Athletic Director, at (716)542-5088. For help accessing the Parent Portal, parents can contact the Technology Office at (716)542-5045.
