REGISTRATION

If your child intends to play a sport at CSLA this year, we ask that you complete the registration process ASAP.  While it can be done anytime up to the start of the particular season, it really helps in planning if you do it early.  If your child changes their mind, just alert the Athletics Office; the registration is obviously not binding.

You need only fill out the registration once each year, but we ask you keep the Athletics Office up-to-date on the sports in which your child will participate.

  • SEE BELOW FOR REGISTRATION

PHYSICALS

Physicals are required for 7th-12th grade student-athletes.  This is an Oregon State law.  We must have the physical on the CORRECT FORM...every 2 years.  So, the norm is prior to 7th, 9th and 11th grades.  More detailed information is in the Registration packet.

FEES

Sports Fees are not due until the first game/match date for the given sport.  Payment should be sent or dropped off directly to our FINANCE Office (Katy Ambrose), or marked FINANCE and left in our Main Office, or paid online.  Please do not drop off payments with coaches or the Director of Athletics!  Online payments are being handled through SQUARE with the link available inside the Registration forms, or you can link here.

 

C.S. Lewis Academy Athletic Registration 2017-18

2017-18 ~ 3rd-12th grade Registration for CSLA Sports
  • INSURANCE
  • CSLA requires each family to have a current medical/accident insurance policy (see CSLA Parent/Student Handbook). We also require each family to keep CSLA informed of any changes to insurance and emergency contact information. The school’s online Renweb access should be used for any changes. Home school student insurance changes should be forwarded to the Athletics Director immediately. By signing below you (parent/guardian) confirm that you have up-to-date insurance and that the information noted on Renweb and on this form is current and accurate.

    It is understood that C.S. Lewis Academy is not liable for any medical, dental, or hospital bills occurring as a result of athletic injuries by a student while participating in a supervised sport, and that such bills, in excess of insurance benefits, shall be the responsibility of the student-athlete's parents/guardians.

    Participants in the CSLA Sports Program who are not daily students at CSLA (Home School) are required to submit a front and back copy of a valid medical insurance card covering your son/daughter and a completed CSLA emergency contact form.
    I verify that the information above is correct and current.
  • PARTICIPATION AGREEMENT
  • I give my permission for my son/daughter to participate in the C.S. Lewis Academy athletic program, realizing that such activity involves the potential for injury, which is inherent in all sports. I acknowledge that even with the best coaching, use of the most protective equipment, and strict observance of rules, injuries are still a possibility.

    I further recognize that medical treatment on an emergency basis may be necessary at a time when I am not available to give my consent in advance of such emergency care, and I give permission to the school to authorize such care as may be deemed necessary under existing circumstances. Consent is also given for an emergency referral to an appropriate physician if, in the opinion of appropriate coaches and representatives of the school, further evaluation is needed.

    I hereby give permission for records for my son/daughter of any diagnosis, diagnostic testing, and/or treatment be released to C.S. Lewis Academy and/or its insurance carrier, in order for them to be better informed of his/her medical condition and capabilities while participating in athletics for C.S. Lewis Academy. I understand that the disclosure of protected health information will only be used for the purpose of providing treatment or to conduct healthcare operations of either C.S. Lewis Academy or an emergency care facility.

    I acknowledge that participation in the sport or sports described above involves risk to the Participant (and to the Participant’s parents or guardians, if the Participant is a minor), and may result in various types of injury including, but not limited to, the following: sickness, bodily injury, death, emotional injury, personal injury, property damage and financial damage.

    In consideration for the opportunity to participate in the sport or sports described above, the Participant (or parent/guardian if Participant is a minor) acknowledges and accepts the risks of injury associated with participation in and transportation to and from the Activity. The Participant (or parent/guardian) accepts personal financial responsibility for any injury or other loss sustained during the sport or sports or during transportation to and from the sport or sports, as well as for any medical treatment rendered to the Participant that is authorized by C.S. Lewis Academy or its agents, employees, volunteers, or any other representatives.

    Further, the Participant (or parent/guardian) releases and promises to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless C.S. Lewis Academy or its agents, employees, volunteers, or any other representatives, for any injury arising directly or indirectly out of the described sport or sports or transportation to and from the Activity, whether such injury arises out of the negligence of the Activity Sponsor, the Participant, or otherwise.

    If a dispute over this agreement or any claim for damages arises, the Participant (or parent/guardian) agrees to resolve the matter through a mutually acceptable alternative dispute resolution process. If the Participant (or parent/guardian) and C.S. Lewis Academy cannot agree upon such a process, the dispute will be submitted to a three-member arbitration panel for resolution pursuant to the rules of the American Arbitration Association.

  • 2017-18 ATHLETICS GUIDELINES
  • While some of the content below is aimed at our older student-athletes, we feel it important that all our parents and student-athletes be aware of the expectations of the entire program.

    *Commitment
    C.S. Lewis Academy is committed to promoting and directing our athletics program in such a manner as to further the aims of the educational goals of the school. We consider every player on our teams to be valuable and their contribution to their team is one of our highest priorities. As a member of the CSLA Sports Program, there are certain expectations and commitments that are expected from each athlete when playing sports for the school.

    *Program Expectations
    Our program expectations are based upon the fact that sports are a vehicle for our players to learn skills that will help them become successful adults. With that philosophy in mind, the following expectations are maintained for all participants.

    *Code of Conduct
    Each player’s conduct on and off the field/court should always be such that it brings credit to the individual, their family, their team, their school, and God. This would include behavior on the practice and game field/court, at school, and in the community. Overall, student-athletes are bound to the CSLA Parent/Student Handbook. As a summary some key areas are noted below.

    1. Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco
    The use of these substances is strictly prohibited regardless of the circumstances. Failure to adhere to this policy could result in loss of playing time, diminished role on the team and/or suspension or expulsion from the team at the coach's and Athletics Director's discretion.

    2. Behavior
    Players are expected to maintain a positive attitude and body language at all times. This includes, and is not exclusive to, practices, games, traveling with the team and at school. Engaging in a negative conversation or displaying a negative attitude toward teammates, coaches, fans, and officials could result in removal from the team. The coach and Athletic Director will determine consequences at their discretion. Technical fouls based on conduct are absolutely unacceptable. Any fine associated with a player or parent being requested to leave a contest will be added to that player's CSLA financial account.

    3. Discipline
    Our philosophy is simple. Discipline is a tool we use to teach character. We believe that no two situations are ever exactly alike and that the punishment should fit the situation. Therefore, we incorporate a variety of discipline strategies from a verbal reprimand to removal from the team, depending upon the circumstances.

    4. Effort
    Effort in our program is mandatory at all times. Effort has four categories: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Physical effort is simply working as hard as possible at all times. Emotional effort is putting your heart into your commitment to this team and always putting the team's goals above the individual's. Mental effort means to be mentally tough, apply new information and techniques immediately and to always have your head in the game. Spiritual effort means being a Christ-like example in all you do, participating in team prayer times and a willingness to support teammates through prayer.

    *Academics/Eligibility
    Each player in our program is responsible to make sure that they are maximizing their potential in the classroom. All student-athletes are expected to maintain and hopefully surpass the minimum eligibility requirements as noted in the Athletic Eligibility Requirements in the CSLA Parent/Student Handbook and under the rules and policies of our leagues and the OSAA. Parents and student-athletes should take special note of the CSLA policies regarding Academic Athletics Warning and Probation.

    *Communication
    If a player has a concern to share with the coach regarding coaching, themselves, or actions of other players, it should be brought to the coach’s attention immediately in a private setting. They may need to make an appointment with the coach to attain the appropriate privacy. The coach will do everything in their power to understand the concern. However, some concerns become philosophical issues where the player may have to understand what the coach is trying to accomplish. If a matter cannot be resolved satisfactorily, the player and coach will meet with the Athletic Director.

    If you as a parent are concerned regarding participation, attitudes, etc., please approach the coach as soon as you can to address the issue, again in a private setting. Discussions held on the court/field immediately after a contest or practice are rarely the right time and place for important discussion. If you are unable to resolve matters with the coach, please set a time to meet with the Athletic Director as the next step.

    *Attendance
    Attendance at all team meetings, practices and functions is considered mandatory unless specifically noted as optional or previously cleared with the coach. Please review team calendars/schedules and look ahead in your planning. Lack of attendance and/or communication with the coach could result in consequences including removal from the team. Attendance at all team functions will be a factor in the selection of teams, playing times and roles on the team. A player who is absent from school for illness is required to notify the coach. Please see your coach for contact methods.

    All players are expected to be on time and prepared for practices, games and team meetings as determined by the coach.

    Please keep in mind that missed practices even if pre-arranged are difficult for you and the team so please try to limit them. It is an expectation that you communicate intended pre-arranged absences to your coach as soon as possible.

  • ONLINE PAYMENT THROUGH CSLA SQUARE
  • PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS
  • Comprehensive physical exams are required for all first-time participants from the 7th grade forward, and every two years thereafter, for example as 7th graders, 9th graders and as 11th graders. Successful results of the physical examination are required for participation. These physicals are the responsibility of the family and the family physician.

    The State Board of Education adopts by reference the form entitled "School Sports Pre‐Participation Examination May 2017" that must be used to document the physical examination and sets out the protocol for conducting the physical examination. Medical providers conducting physicals on or after June 30, 2010 must use the form dated May 2017.

    Stat. Auth: ORS 326‐051
    Stats. Implemented: ORS 336.479
    Hist.: ODE 24‐2002, f. & cert. ef. 11‐15‐02; ODE 29‐2004(Temp), f. & cert. ef. 9‐15‐04 thru 2‐25‐05; ODE 4‐2005, f. & cert. ef. 2‐14‐05

    If the student-athlete has NOT completed a per-participation physical, they CANNOT participate in practices or contests until the physical is completed, cleared, and submitted to the athletic office.
  • Link to Physical Form
  • TRANSPORTATION
  • During the course of the sports season, your child will be involved in contests and/or practices held away from the C.S. Lewis campus. The following guidelines relate to transportation of student-athletes for these events.

    When teams travel for games/practices away from the C.S. Lewis campus, transportation may be furnished by the school. When school transportation is provided, student-athletes must travel both to and from the location of the contest by school-provided transportation unless exceptions are granted by an official coach of that team, the Athletics Director, or a CSLA administrator.

    For many activities CSLA will not be providing transportation to and from the event. For those events/activities, CSLA has a private transportation policy. Every family must complete the Private Transportation Release form yearly. That information, including a family's desire to transport independently, will be used for athletics event transportation purposes.
  • HIGH SCHOOL TRANSFERS and FOREIGN STUDENT INFORMATION
  • These additional forms may be required if your student is a transfer from another district, or is a foreign exchange student:

    Eligibility Student Transfer Certificate (for 10th-12th grade students transferring in to CSLA from another school at the beginning of the school year or 9th-12th grade students transferring in to CSLA after the school year has started) The Eligible Student Transfer Certificate form linked below must be turned in.

    Foreign Student Transfer Certificate -any exchange student wishing to participate for CSLA athletics needs to download and review the Foreign Student Eligibility Certificate linked below.
  • Eligibility Student Transfer Certificate
  • Foreign Student Transfer Certificate
  • HOME SCHOOL STUDENTS (high school only)
  • We are excited to welcome new student-athletes to the C.S. Lewis community by way of our home school athlete program. However, it is our duty to protect C.S. Lewis Academy by making sure we are in full compliance with the regulations pertaining to student-athlete eligibility.

    Since we are under the governance of the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) the requirements are somewhat extensive.

    Please note that our association with the Metro Christian League prevents us from allowing home school students to participate at the grade school or middle school levels.

    1. For your student-athlete to be considered a “home school” student, you MUST meet all criteria as outlined on the OSAA Parents Checklist (see below).

    2. A student who is enrolled full time at another OSAA member or associate member school (recent suggestions have been Estacada Charter and Connections Academy), would not qualify as a home school student and would not be allowed the athletics eligibility provisions of a home school student. In most of these cases the student may be allowed to participate in athletics at his/her local public school, but not CSLA.

    The OSAA has emphasized that as a home school parent, you must be diligent in following Oregon State law. You can find the pertinent State laws and statutes linked from the ESD site. (see below)

    Home School Student-Athlete Additional Requirement List

    1. One time only, you will need to complete the OSAA School Representation Eligibility Certificate. (see below)

    2. Initialed and signed copy of the OSAA Checklist (yearly-see below)

    3. Letter of confirmation from ESD. Link to Willamette ESD, serving Yamhill County. (one-time-see below)

    4. Copy of the test results noted on checklist showing a proficiency which meets OSAA criteria. (submitted yearly)

    A. “Member Private School’s Responsibilities (Max's Law, ORS 336.485, OAR 581-022-0421) (Jenna’s Law, ORS 417.875)

    1) Suspected or Diagnosed Concussion: Any athlete who exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion following an observed or suspected blow to the head or body, or who has been diagnosed with a concussion, shall not be permitted to return to that athletic contest or practice, or any other athletic contest or practice on that same day. In schools which have the service of an athletic trainer registered by the Oregon Board of Athletic Trainers, that athletic trainer may determine that an athlete has not exhibited signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion, and has not suffered a concussion, and return the athlete to play. Athletic trainers may also work in consultation with an appropriate Heath Care Professional (see below) in determining when an athlete is able to return to play following a concussion.

    2) Return to Participation: Until an athlete who has suffered a concussion is no longer experiencing signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion, and a medical release form signed by an appropriate Health Care Professional (Physician (MD), Physician’s Assistant (PA), Doctor of Osteopathic (DO) licensed by the Oregon State Board of Medicine, nurse practitioner licensed by the Oregon State Board of Nursing, or Psychologist licensed by the Oregon Board of Psychologist Examiners) is obtained,the athlete shall not be permitted to return to athletic activity.

    3) Private Schools Only: On an annual basis prior to participation, private schools shall require each student and at least one parent or legal guardian of the student to sign the Concussion -Private School Informed Consent form acknowledging the receipt of information regarding symptoms and warning signs of concussions. Private schools shall maintain a copy of each student's signed form on file for review at any time by the OSAA staff.
