A message from Mr. Doherty:
The new school year is soon upon us and so are Fall Sports. The Nottingham School will be offering the following sports: Boys Soccer (for grades 6-8), Girls Soccer (for grades 6-8), Girls Volleyball (for grades 6-8) and Co-ed Cross Country (for grades 5-8).
Fall Soccer Tryouts take place at Knights Field on Monday and Tuesday, August 28th & 29th at 3:15 -4:30. Please arrive with soccer cleats, shin guards, plenty of drinking water or sports drink.
If your student-athlete is interested in participating in Fall Sports at The Nottingham School there are a few documents that need your attention in order to participate in school sports. Please be sure to answer all four (4) questions/sections of the Sports Sign-ups Google Form. Additionally, you will also receive three (3) other emails with Google Form links to fill out the three (3) below mentioned forms. The following forms and documents should be reviewed and all sections should be completed in full.
The following links to the other required Google Sports Forms listed below only need to be completed once for each school year...so if your student-athlete participates in Fall Sports then these forms do not need to be submitted again later in the school year.
- Permission to Participate Form
- Student/Athlete Health Questionnaire
- Parent/Athlete Concussion Information Sheet
Please take note…Your student-athlete will need to have a current/valid Sports Physical on file at the school. Once sign-ups are submitted I will cross-reference athletes from the previous year to confirm the validity/expiration date of their Sports Physical that we have on file here at school. I suggest that you obtain a Sports Physical and have the paperwork forwarded to the School Nurse, Stasia Cardillo, prior to the start of tryouts and pre-season practices.
SPORTS PHYSICALS - here is a short list of some Urgent Care locations in the area that offer Sports Physicals at a very low cost:
- Access Sports Medicine - Exeter
- Access Sports Medicine - Dover
- Convenient MD - Concord
- Convenient MD - Dover
- Wentworth-Douglass Express Care - Dover & Lee
REMEMBER - The expectation is for you to complete these athletic documents through the Google Forms links that will be sent via email and NOT hand any paper copies of the forms into the school...with the exception of the Sports Physical documentation.
As coaches we will conduct tryouts and practice sessions in accordance to the NHIAA Guidelines related to youth sports participation...especially related to Covid-19 Expectations. Per the NHIAA, masks are currently optional for all sports. If any changes arise throughout the season I will notify all families via email. If you have any questions or concerns related to the Nottingham School Sports Program, please do not hesitate to reach out and contact me, Dan Doherty, Nottingham School Athletic Director, and I will address your concern as soon as possible. I can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
