Reminders about Fall Sports: Parents/guardians are reminded that students who want to participate in a Fall sport at BHS must register their student via the Aspen parent portal, as soon aspossibleand before tryouts. Parents/guardians also should confirm that the student has a valid baseline test result and medical record (physical) on file with BHS.
1) Registration for a sport must be done by the parent/guardian, not the student. Follow these instructions: https://www.bedfordps.org/sites/bedfordps/files/uploads/sports_registration.pdf Here is the list of sports offered at BHS: https://www.bedfordps.org/athletics/pages/sports-offerings-bhs.
2) Baseline test results are valid for two years, so if the student (of any grade) will be trying out for a sport at BHS for the first time in the Fall, a new baseline test must be done at BHS. A new baseline is required also for returning BHS students whose baseline will be older than two years (typically, juniors or students entering their third year of sports at BHS.)
Here are the remaining dates for baseline testing offered at BHS, in the BHS H-Wing Computer Lab:
Lastly, in addition to the registration and baseline test, the student’s health record (last physical) must be on file with the BHS nurse’s office, and the physical’s expiration date should be past the end of the sport season. Students cannot try out or play a sport without a current health record on file. The school and MIAA take this very serious about these things. Kids have been turned away from a tryout and benched from playing until a valid health record has been delivered to the school, so it’s best to get ahead of this now.
Parents/guardians, we hope these tips will help your kids be ready for Fall.
