Required Sports Forms
Bishop O'Connell is now using a paperless electronic health records system from Magnus Health, which you can find through the MyDJO Parent portal. Health forms will no longer be submitted directly to the admissions office, the nurse, or the athletic trainer. Once you are on Magnus Health you can click Support, then Parents for links to Getting Started video, and answers to some frequently asked questions.
Parents of students trying out for any sport must complete the "Sports Only Requirements" in addition to the Vital Health Record, and other forms required by the school nurse. To get to the Sports Only Requirements, answer "yes" to the conditional question, "Is your child planning to try out for any sports team AT ANY TIME during the upcoming year?"
The "Sports Only Requirements" include:
1. Pre-participation Physical Exam
In the Magnus Health Portal, you can download and print the form to take to your doctor. Any other forms the doctor chooses to use will still be acceptable. If you are a new family, you can download the form HERE. Please note that the all sports physicals must be dated June 1 or later to be eligible for the upcoming school year.
The completed physical form can be uploaded by scanning and uploading the file, uploading a picture of the form, or faxing/mailing the form to Magnus with the student’s specific cover letter (generated in Magnus).
2. Parental Consent for Athletic Participation and Acknowledgement of Risks
This is an electronically signed statement.
3. Concussion Education for Parents
Answer “yes” after a parent has read the flyer.
4. Concussion Education for Athletes
Answer “yes” after the student has read the flyer.
5. Student Driving to Athletic Events
This is an electronically signed statement, and it is optional. Please complete if you give permission for your child to ride with someone else to a team activity.
Remember, it takes time to check and approve everyone’s forms, so waiting until the first day of practice will delay your child being cleared to tryout. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
