Participants must complete the following before practice or tryouts begin:
Have a completed physical. This can be emailed to the office (email@example.com), dropped off in the office (office hours are 7:15 - 3:30 M-F), or brought on or before the first day of tryouts. No player will be allowed to try out without a completed KSHSAA physical packet on file.
Heat illness and concussion training must be complete before tryouts begin (see below).
Heat illness and Concussion Training
All athletes who wish to participate in fall sport must complete an online course on heat illness and concussions. The courses are available for free through the NFHS website (see below). Once complete students should turn their completion certificate into their coach on the first day of practice.
Navigate to: NFHS Learn
Student athletes should create an account for themselves to be used each year.
Search the courses for the following two courses:
Concussion for Students
Heat Illness Prevention
You must "purchase" these courses, but there is no cost. Once they have been "purchased", students can complete each course at their own pace. Print the certificate upon completion. If you are unable to print, please email to Ms. Nichols (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will relay the certificates to the fall sports coaches.
Once you are on the NFHS page, set up an account. The accounts are free to set up. Be sure to choose the video for Kansas. Once your child has watched the video, the athlete needs to take a screenshot of the screen and send it to his or her head coach or print the certificate and bring it with him or her to the athlete’s first practice/tryout. Participants that come without the certificate will be required to watch the video at the school and miss that portion of tryouts. Thank you for your help with this step.
