Athletics Policies and Procedures
2014-2015

Sports physicals are required every two years and must be completed on the OSAA approved form prior to participating in any practice or game.

The athletic fee of $125.00 is due prior to participating in any practice or game.

Under the team name of Valiants, Valley Catholic High School student-athletes compete in the OSAA Cowapa League. Valley Catholic High School athletes are among the most visible representatives of the school, thereby assuming added responsibilities (both on and off the courts and fields) in citizenship, sportsmanship, attitude, and appearance. Coaches may therefore, as a condition of team membership, require higher standards in all four of these categories.

Any head coach or the Director of Athletics may at any time reprimand a student-athlete, suspend the student-athlete from the team, or impose conditions of probation on the student-athlete’s continued participation on the team if the head coach or Athletic Director believes that the student has engaged in misconduct or violated student-athlete standards.

Attendance Policy:

Oregon State Law (ORS 339.065) defines an excused absence as “an absence caused by the pupil’s sickness, by the sickness of some member of the pupil’s family, or by an emergency. The school’s administration may excuse absences for other reasons when satisfactory arrangements are made in advance of the absence.”

Students are not allowed to participate in after-school athletics (practices or games) if they are not in attendance the entire school day. Excused absences must be cleared prior to the day of the absence, including medical appointments, college visits, and school related activities.

Drug and Alcohol Policy:

The use, distribution, or possession of tobacco, alcohol, or non-prescribed drugs is prohibited. Students who remain on the premises where these substances are being used are in violation of this policy. Students who violate the school’s policy are subject to probation, suspension or expulsion. In addition to sanctions imposed by the school, student-athletes are subject to the following suspension from athletic contests:

First Violation (Tobacco): Two Calendar Weeks
First Violation (Alcohol/Drugs): Four Calendar Weeks
Second Violation (Any): Removal from Current Program

I have read and accept the above school policy regarding school attendance and participation in athletics. I accept and support the school policy regarding tobacco, alcohol, and non-prescribed drugs and understand my duty to report any violation to the Athletic Director.

Student-athlete and a parent/guardian must both sign below to process the registration.

Under state law (ORS 417.875, “Jenna’s Law”), all private school athletes and parents must read the following information about concussions and sign at the bottom of this form(a typed name counts as a signature). We are asking all parents and students to review and acknowledge this Concussion Information Sheet since concussions can occur during PE or other physical activities. A separate form must be completed for each student.

Valley Catholic HS Sports Medicine Concussion Information

What is a concussion?

Concussion is defined as mild traumatic brain injury that interferes with normal brain function. Each concussion is unique and can cause multiple symptoms. Some symptoms will appear immediately, while others may develop over the following days or weeks. Symptoms may be subtle and are often difficult to fully recognize. Common symptoms include headache, dizziness, sensitivity to light and noise, mood changes, and difficulty with concentration and memory. Other symptoms may also be present.

What should I watch for?

If the athlete is sent home, they should not be left alone. A responsible adult should stay with them to monitor their symptoms and help ensure they are resting. If any of the following appear you should contact your physician or go to your hospital emergency room immediately.

  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Abnormal emotional behaviors
  • Slurred speech
  • Unequal pupil size or slow / absent reaction to light
  • Unusual vision difficulties
  • Convulsions or seizure
  • Dizziness or loss of coordination
  • Unusual mental confusion or disorientation
  • Abnormal sleepiness or grogginess
  • Progressively worsening headache

Are painkillers ok to use?

Normally, nothing stronger than Tylenol is advised. The use of aspirin, Advil, Motrin, and Aleve should be avoided as they are blood thinners and may increase bleeding. Avoiding caffeine and other stimulants is also recommended.

Is a CT needed?

The need for a CT is most often determined by a physician in the emergency room. Typically, with a concussion, a CT will appear normal. If you are not sent to the emergency room, a CT is likely not needed.

When do we see the doctor?

Per OSAA Guidelines and State Law, any athlete with a concussion with needs written medical clearance before they can return to competition. If the athlete has a history of concussion we would encourage you to see the provider who has previously treated them. If there is no previous history of concussion, you can follow up with the athlete’s regular doctor or we can provide names of doctors who are experienced with managing concussions. If at any time during the recovery process you have questions or concerns about the athlete’s progress, please do not hesitate to check in with the athlete’s doctor or other health care provider.

Is sleeping all night ok?

Before sleeping, evaluate symptoms to check their progression. If they are improving, it is believed sleeping without being woken up is all right.

Their pupils seem normal; do they still have a concussion?

Pupil reaction is observed during most concussion evaluations. Typically, athletes with a concussion will have normal pupil reaction that matches in both eyes. This is tested not to determine the presence of a concussion, but rather to rule out a more serious brain injury.

What about school?

If our athletic trainer knows about the concussion, communication will be sent to the athlete’s teachers and counselor informing them of the concussion. Current research has shown the need for complete physical and cognitive rest. While it is important to be at school, we encourage parents to evaluate the athlete’s symptoms and then determine if being at school or staying at home to rest is the best course of action. Often when students come to school while still experiencing moderate to severe symptoms, their symptoms will worsen during the course of the day, resulting in a need to be picked up from school. Please remember that half days are also an option.

What about ImPACT testing?

The ImPACT test is a computer based test designed to help monitor recovery after a concussion. It tests both short and long term memory, reaction times, pattern recognition and impulse control. After a concussion, scores are compared to baseline scores for comparison.
