Student Eligibility Requirements for Participation:

To be eligible to participate a current Doctor’s Physical Examination form or Health Assessment Record MUST be on file with the MBA SCHOOL NURSE 24 hours before the first practice. To be considered current, doctor's physicals are valid for a 13 month period to date. Without the sports physical, athletes are NOT permitted to attend practices. If the physical will expire during the season, an athlete may not participate until the school nurse receives a new sports physical. Also a completed Somers Public School ATHLETIC PERMISSION FORM must be on file with the nurse & coach.

Your physician can fax forms directly to the school. MBA school Fax# is: 860-763-2073

Training and race runs will be both on and off the MBA campus and will include the grounds of Somers HS and the Field Road Park. It is critical that all athletes understand the off-site runs are a privilege that requires students exhibit trust-worthy behavior both during and after school. Coaches will use their discretion regarding this privilege.
