                       We will not be able to conduct FREE Physicals for the 2020-2021 season.  You will need to get a physical for the new school year as of August 1 or you will not be able to tryout or participate after August 1.  If you are playing a winter or spring sport you can wait on physical as your season approaches but you cannot participate in anything until physical is on file with coach or athletic director. 
If you get your physical from your doctor or a local facility the forms are located on ohsaa.org  go to: https://ohsaa.org/medicine/physicalexamform make sure to print 20-21 form
 
Print out the entire form for the doctor - but the coach or athletic director only needs pages 4,5, and 6 completed and returned. 
Physicals are good from August 1 to July 31 of each school year. 
 
 
 
 Register your student athlete on Final Forms ASAP  https://Fairland-oh.finalforms.com
 
 All athletes must have physical beginning August 1 to participate in open gym, practice or tryouts. 
Physical must be dated for the 2020-2021 school year
 Forms available on OHSAA.com, fairland-oh.finalforms.com
and middle school office
 
 There will also be required athlete and parent meetings for each sport season.  I will post those dates as we get closer to the season.  Fall meeting will be in August, winter in November and spring in March.

We will be starting conditioning and training in July. There are some guidelines that we will need to follow due to COVID-19
.
1st - Parents/Guardians will need to sign a form in order for your daughter to participate.  This form must be filled out prior to any conditioning, training, or gym times that follow.  We will have a form drive thru at Fairland Middle School June 30 and July 1st from 3-6 PM to give parents/guardians a chance to fill out and return to us. Please bring a pen. If the form is not filled out and signed by you and your daughter, she cannot participate.
 
2nd - Each athlete needs to take her temperature before she leaves the house and it will be recorded when they arrive.
 
3rd - We can only work with 8-9 athletes at a time.  A schedule will be made for athletes for time of participation.  Once you are assigned a group you will have to stay with that group.  Athletes are not allowed to change groups.
 
4th - During training, conditioning, and gym times we will be observing social distancing.   Athletes will need to bring her own water bottle.  No one will be allowed to share,  and furthermore locker rooms and water fountains will be off limits. If an athlete needs to use the restroom they will need to return home to do so.
 
5th - Athletes must have a physical by August 1st.  You may get your physical from your regular doctor, Urgent Care or Med Express 
 
The guidelines will most likely change every few weeks.  If we follow them now they will relax as the summer goes on.  If you have any questions feel free to message us on the volleyball page  on Facebook, text us or email.  We will do our best to keep you and your athlete  up to date on changes, procedures, and training times.  
 
Masks for athletes are optional for athletes, but they are encouraged.  Coaches will be wearing face shields.
 
Training, conditioning and gym times are optional.  They are not required.  I do recommend your child to attend to allow for preparation for tryouts, but non-attendance will not be held against your child, however please understand if your child does not attend she should be doing workouts and some ball passes at home to stay in practice.
