We are excited to announce our partnership with FamilyID, an online mobile-friendly registration platform for O’Dowd athletic participation. FamilyID is a secure, user-friendly system that will help us to be more administratively efficient in the collection and distributionof O’Dowd athletic specific information for our students, families, and coaching staff. When you register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of your information in your FamilyID profile. You enter your information only once for each family member for multiple uses and athletic programs.
All students intending to participate in athletics at O’Dowd must complete this online athletic registration process and await notification of clearance by a member of the O’Dowd athletic training or athletic department staff. Students may not participate or tryout until this process is completed. Once athletic registration information is complete and we verify we are in possession of a valid Preparticipation Physical Form, a notice of athletic clearance will be granted. An email will be sent to the family and the student’s name will appear on the head coach’s athletic clearance list. Notification of pending athletic clearance will be sent within 2-3 business days following each submitted registration.
A Preparticipation Physical Form is valid for 365 days from the date signed by a physician. If our records indicate a student’s physical form has expired (meaning no longer valid) or will expire during the season of sport they are intending to participate, clearance will not be granted for that sport until a valid Preparticipation Physical Form is completed by a physician and uploaded to your FamilyID account.
Prior to beginning the online athletic registration process, please have the following information for accurate and efficient completion:
- All sport(s) your son/daughter intends to participate in for the 2016-17 school year
- Your student’s Bishop O’Dowd High School – Student ID #
- Contact information for 2 emergency contacts
- Your son/daughter’s physician’s name and information
- Your insurance information
- Name and dosage of medication your son/daughter may take
- Preparticipation Physical Form signed by a physician
- This will be needed if our current records indicate your son/daughter’s physical form has expired
All families must create a new account unless you’ve used FamilyID with another organization. Click here for instructions.
One of the significant changes for our returning students and families is that we no longer will collect hardcopy Pre-participation Physical Forms. This form must be uploaded into your student’s FamilyID account in the PHYSICIANS section of registration. In preparation for uploading this form, you’ll need to be able to retrieve from either: (1) a photo taken of the completed Physical Form from a mobile phone, or (2) a scanned completed Physical Form from a computer.
