Important Procedures and Documents
The FHSAA requires all student-athletes to have an updated FHSAA provided physical form on file before participating in any FHSAA sponsored activity. In addition, all student athletes must have an FHSAA provided Liability and Consent form on file prior to participating in any FHSAA sponsored activity. In addition Hernando Christian Academy requires a signed Statement of Cooperation form and a signed Informed Consent Awareness of Sports Injury Risk form in order for each student athlete to be eligible to participate in any interscholastic activity.
All of these forms are attached below.
All potential athletes must have a full sports physical done by a doctor prior to participation in any sport. This can be done by the athlete's family doctor or at the Health Department. The Sports Physical (which is different from the School Entrance Physical) is below. The physical will be valid until the start of the following school year. In other words, if an athlete receives a physical for football or any fall sport, the physical would still be valid for the spring sports season or any HCA summer conditioning program. The best advice is if you are planning to play sports at HCA, August is a good time to get your sports physical and you are good for whatever Lion team you play for!
All athletes will have an athletic fee added to his or her school bill prior to the athlete's sports season.
If your student athlete aspires to play college sports, please take the time to review the information provided below.
