Injury Reports

  • As a coach you, or your designated assistant are responsible for completing an Athletic Injury form as soon as possible after the injury occurs. To facilitate this process, please note there are 4 Injury Reporting links - one for each of the secondary schools. Select the form that is appropriate for your team. The links lead you to a  fillable form, which upon completion and submission will be directed to the appropriate school nurse, the trainer assigned to your building and the respective building athletic coordinator.
