JEFFERSON COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS PARENT PERMISSION FOR ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION

  1. Before an athlete is permitted to participate in the Jefferson County athletic program this permission form must be signed for each sport and on file with the school.
  2. I/ We relieve the school district of any or all liability for accidents or injuries connected in any way with the competitive athletic program.
  3. I/ We accept that it is our responsibility to provide insurance protection for the athlete while participating in competitive athletics.
  4. The School District makes available student insurance plans which offer coverage for any accident or injury resulting from participation in competitive athletics. This plan is available at your local school. (Check with your school athletics’ director.)
  5. Occasionally your son/daughter may travel to practice or a scheduled athletic event in student driven cars, if bus transportation cannot be scheduled. If you object to this procedure, please notify your high school athletics director in writing.
  6. I acknowledge that my student as a participant in athletics may be videotaped during practice or competition for purposes of review or recruitment and therefore, video may be shared with other teams or educational institutions.

NOTE: Although participation in supervised school athletic and activities programs are among the least hazardous events in which any student will engage, either in or out of school, the very nature of these school athletic and activities programs does create potential for injury. Parents should be aware that the chance of injury is present while students are participating in school activities and athletics and should understand this includes a risk of injury which may range in severity from minor, to long term catastrophic, up to and including death. Those parents who do not wish to expose their students to this possibility should not sign this permission form.

The athletic fee must be paid, and the required paperwork must be submitted, prior to the first practice. A full refund will be made to the athlete who is cut or quits before being involved in the sport through 15 calendar days. The refund must be claimed on or before the starting date of the next season. Payment plan arrangements can be made upon request.
I give Jefferson Academy permission to use my athlete's name and picture in school publications and social media posts. This includes game rosters, highlights and updates on social media and media outlets like BOCO preps and CHSAANow, and the yearbook. If there are certain exceptions, please contact the Athletic Director directly at cmelville@jajags.com *
