Springdale Jr-Sr High School is pleased you have made the decision to play for the Dynamos and hope you have an enjoyable experience this season. Being part of a team has many benefits and rewards. Student-athletes learn the importance of integrity, respect, discipline, hard work, and how to deal with success and overcome adversity. Not only do these lessons build good character and confidence, they are the most significant results of participating in high school sports. What's more, skills and abilities developed on the field, court, or in the gymnasium are lifelong lessons easily applied in the classroom and workplace and help young people become a positive influence in the community. Participating in Pennsylvania's interscholastic athletics program requires certain mandatory procedures and rules as set forth by the PIAA and the Allegheny Valley School District.
Sports physicals are offered each year by the high school and scheduled by the schodol nurse. Any student, entering grades 7-12, who is interested in playing a school sport during the respective school year, needs to have a physical. Allegheny Valley School District offers sports physicals free of charge. The physicals will be accepted for any sport, any season, for the upcoming school year and are a courtesy extended to the athletes of the Allegheny Valley School District. Parents may also choose to take their child to his/her own physician for this physical. All students will be expected to follow all guidelines outlined.
Physicals for the 2021-2022 school year: scheduled for June 5, 2021
The Allegheny Valley SD offers the convenience of online registration for Springdale Jr-Sr High School sports programs through our partner company, FamilyID (www.familyid.com). FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides an easy, user-friendly way to register for the athletic programs and helps with administrative efficiency and environmental responsibility. When a child is registered, the information will only have to be entered once. All athletes must register for all sports they will be playing during the school year (fall, winter, and spring sports).
If you are having problems registering on FamilyID, please contact FamilyID support at 1-781-205-2800 prompt 1. Please remember that you will STILL be required to complete Sections 5 (Health History) and 6 (PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation and Certification of Authorized Medical Examiner - this exam is the actual physical performed by the doctor). Both forms need to be completed, signed, dated, and uploaded afterJune 1 or prior to the season in which your son/daughter will be playing. The physical must be signed and dated June 1 or later and will be effective, regardless of when performed during a school year, until May 31 of the following year. The physical can be uploaded when you complete the online registration on the FamilyID site. When the physical is uploaded to the online registration, you will not need to submit a hard copy or original to the office; the electronic copy suffices.
