Eligibility and Authorization Statement
This document is to be signed by the participant of an NCHSAA member school and
by the participant’s parent.
I have read, understand and acknowledge receipt of the eligibility rules of
the North Carolina High School Athletic Association. I understand that a
copy of the NCHSAA Handbook is on file with the principal and athletic
administrator and that I may review it, in its entirety, if I so choose. All
NCHSAA bylaws and regulations from the Handbook are also posted on
the NCHSAA web site at www.nchsaa.org
I understand that an NCHSAA member school must adhere to all rules and
regulations that pertain to the interscholastic athletics programs that the school
sponsors, but that local rules may be more stringent than NCHSAA rules. I
understand that participation in interscholastic athletics is a privilege not a right.
Student Code of Responsibility As a student athlete, I understand and accept the
I will respect the rights and beliefs of others and will treat others with courtesy and
consideration. I will be fully responsible for my own actions and the consequences
of my actions. I will respect the property of others. I will respect and obey the
rules of my school and laws of my community, state and country.
I will show respect to those who are responsible for enforcing the rules of my
school and the laws of my community, state and country. I understand that a
student whose character or conduct violates the school’s Athletic Code or School
Code of Responsibility could be deemed ineligible for a period of time as determined
by the principal or school system Administration
I understand that if I drop a class, take course work through Post Secondary
Enrollment Option, or other educational options, this action could affect compliance
with NCHSAA academic standards and my eligibility.
Informed Consent – By its nature, participation in interscholastic athletics includes
risk of injury and transmission of infectious disease such as HIV and Hepatitis B.
Although serious injuries are not common and the risk of HIV transmission is almost
nonexistent in supervised school athletic programs, it is impossible to eliminate all
risk. Participants have a responsibility to help reduce that risk. Participants must obey
all safety rules, report all physical and hygiene problems to their coaches, follow a
proper conditioning program, and inspect their own equipment daily. PARENTS,
LEGAL CUSTODIAN’S OR STUDENTS WHO MAY NOT WISH TO
ACCEPT RISK DESCRIBED IN THIS WARNING SHOULD NOT SIGN
THIS FORM. STUDENTS MAY NOT PARTICIPATE IN AN NCHSAA-
SPONSORED SPORT WITHOUT THE STUDENT’S AND
I understand that in the case of injury or illness requiring treatment by medical
personnel and transportation to a health care facility, that a reasonable attempt
will be made to contact the parent/legal custodian in the case of the student-athlete
being a minor, but that, if necessary, the student-athlete will be treated and
transported via ambulance to the nearest hospital.
I consent to medical treatment for the student following an injury or illness suffered
during practice and/or a contest.
I understand all concussions are potentially serious and may result in
complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and
managed properly. Further I understand that if my student is removed from a practice
or competition due to a suspected concussion, he or she will be unable to return to
participation that day. After that day, written authorization from a physician (M.D. or
D.O.) or an athletic trainer working under the supervision of a physician will be
required in order for the student to return to participation.
I have received, read and signed the Gfeller-Waller Concussion Information
Sheet. I consent to the NCHSAA use of the herein named student’s name,
likeness, and athletic-related information in reports of contests,
