- Additional Information:
- Doctor Visits - if your son/daughter becomes ill or injured and needs to see a doctor, you MUST turn in a script to the Athletic Training Staff that communicates when, or if, this athlete is cleared for continued sports participation. This documentation is in addition to anything needed for gym or the school office staff. For example, if your daughter is sick, the physician can write, “Suzie was seen by in my office today for a cold and is able to safely participate in sports starting 9/15/08.” If this documentation is NOT provided, your son/daughter will be withheld from sports participation until appropriate clearances are on file.
- Water Bottles - All athletes must bring their own, clearly labeled water bottles to all practices/games. Please be aware that there has been recent media attention to the potential unsafe use of old polycarbonate water bottles with the recycling number 7 on the bottom (Nalgene type bottles). It is recommended that you replace all old #7 polycarbonate water bottles with new BPA-free #7 water bottles. You are also encouraged you to use your bottles for water only (sugary drinks attract bees and become moldy in the sun) and wash them using MILD detergents and lukewarm water each day.
- Weight Room - Drayer Physical Therapy Institute has contracted with Northern High School to provide exercise physiologists who are Certified Strength and Conditioning Coaches to physically prepare your son/daughter for their sport season. The weight room is open to any NYCSD student in grades 7-12. Summer hours will be posted towards the end of the year. The weight room will be open after school, Monday – Friday until 5pm. Appropriate attire is required (i.e. t-shirt, shorts, sneakers. Ladies – please no thin strapped tank tops or short, tight shorts).
