Register My Athlete
The following steps must be completed in order to participate in athletics at Jerome High School:
1) Parents–Complete your “Register My Athlete” registration online at this link.
This includes all of the required athletics consent packet information. Find Jerome High School, Create an account, add a new athlete, complete your athlete’s profile, register for a sport, and then complete the registration checklist. After registration, you can login at any time to view the status of your athlete. Once your athlete has been added to the account, register them and give them consent for all the sports they will play in the upcoming year. This will save you time if you do it all at once. You can also add additional athletes if you have multiple kids who are participating. Click here for more detailed instructions. (Please note that when you’ve submitted everything, it will still say your child’s paperwork is incomplete until the athletic director or secretary can login and approve the physical or interim questionnaire.)
2) Athletes: Turn in your Physical Exam Form or the Interim Physical Questionnaire to the main office secretary, or upload the form to your Register My Athlete account.
A new physical is required in 9th Grade and in 11th Grade and it’s good for two years in accordance with IHSAA guidelines. The interim questionnaire is required sophomore and senior year in between the freshmen and junior year physicals. If you turn in the interim questionnaire, the physical from 9th or 11th grade must be on file as well.
We strongly encourage concussion baseline testing every two years as well. We schedule two dates each year to give our athletes an opportunity to take that test which helps in diagnosing the severity of concussions should they occur. Lon Egbert and Carla Southwick of Jerome Physical Therapy donate their time and Lon has spent thousands of dollars providing licenses tests for our athletes, and we are grateful for his support of our programs!
3) Student-Athletes: Pay for a student activity card-$35. (Payment may be made through the High School Bookkeeper Becky Long.)
4) Student-Athletes: Complete the JHS Athletic Eligibility Clearance Form and return it to your coach prior to tryouts or the first practice.
Note: Student-athletes must complete these requirements before they are allowed to participate. The eligibility verification forms are available in a folder outside the athletic department offices in the upper southwest corner of the new gym, or they can be downloaded and printed. If you have any questions, please text or call the athletic director Mrs. Kaly Gillette-Shippen (Coach K) at 208.757.8872.
