Checklist for Coaches

The multitude of forms and requirements for athletic trips can be confusing so here is a checklist of requirements for the different forms of athletic trips.  We would appreciate receiving the forms a day or two before departure, but we do understand the chaos of organizing teenage athletes and the time it takes to complete the necessary forms. 

 Please note the Criminal Record Checks can take up to 2 weeks to complete but they are valid for 5 years once completed.  All driver's license and insurance papers need to be resubmitted with they are renewed.
