Concussion Awareness
 

All athletes and their parents, are required to take a free online concussion awareness course and return the Concussion Training Form (see below) to Saint John's High School.

Lastly, all Student-Athletes must have a current physical examination on file in our Nurse's Office, in order to tryout and participate in our athletic program. The submitted physical exam must be current, meaning the most recent physical examination must have occurred within the last 13 months.
