FHUHS SPORTS PHYSICAL INFO FOR 2012-13
Anyone wishing to participate in athletics during the upcoming school year is reminded that an up-to-date physical is required to be on file with the school nurse and the activities department. All physicals will continue to be valid for one calendar year.
The Vermont Department of Health suggests that all students in Vermont receive an annual “Well Child” exam, which will now also serve as the sports physical. We want to get this information out in a timely manner so that all parties affected by this change will have ample opportunities to schedule their appointments. It will be the responsibility of the student-athletes and their families to provide coaches or FHUHS administration with a copy of the physical exam prior to the first practice for the fall season. Failure to do so will prevent the student-athlete from participation, unless we have a record of a valid physical (within the past calendar year) on file at the high school.
REMINDER: Vermont’s School Sports Concussion Law (Act 58 of 2011), requires parents and athletes to sign off that they have received the information developed pursuant to concussions in youth sports, and FHUHS will provided this information annually to each youth athlete and the athlete’s parents or guardians. FHUHS will continue to utilize the ImPACT Concussion Recognition Program as we have the five previous years, and we believe our concussion awareness program is ahead of many other schools.
Below is information relevant to Vermont’s new Concussion Education Law and concussion awareness.
Slaters Athletics Fall 2012 Important Information

Field Hockey, Boy’s and Girl’s Soccer will begin on Thursday August 16rd. Cross country practice will begin on Monday August 20th. Practice times are posted on the activities page of school’s website.
Please visit www.fhuhs.org for your particular sport of interest. Please see the attached list of teams, clubs and activities offered at Fair Haven Union High School.
The FHUHS Booster Club will once again be sponsoring Fall Kick Off 2012. This season it will be held on Tuesday August 21st at 6pm near the tower on LaPlaca Field. We will be expecting to see everyone (athletes & parents) there. This get together provides an opportunity for parents and family to meet the coaches and ask any questions about the upcoming season. The booster club will also be looking to increase its membership, and will need your help working our home games on LaPlaca Field. Please take a look at the information in this packet on how to contribute to this great organization, whose mission is to give every dollar back to the students at FHUHS.
CONCUSSION AWARENESS Again this year , Vermont’s School Sports Concussion Law (Act 58 of 2011) is in effect, which requires parents and athletes to sign off that they have received the information developed pursuant to concussions in youth sports, and FHUHS will provided this information annually to each youth athlete and the athlete’s parents or guardians. FHUHS will continue to utilize the ImPACT Concussion Screening Program as we have the four previous years, and we believe our concussion awareness program is very advanced.
All participants are reminded that a signed permission form, a signed concussion form, and a current physical must be on file at FHUHS in order to practice. The signed permission form acknowledges the student-athlete’s agreement to abide by the academic eligibility and substance abuse policies which have been approved by the FHUHS School Board. These policies can be found in the FHUHS Student Handbook, which is available online at www.fhuhs.org . We strongly encourage each parent to read through the handbook with their child/children.
Below is information relevant to Vermont’s new Concussion Education Law and concussion awareness, available at www.cdc.gov Concussions in Youth Sports
Academic Eligibility for returning students-athletes for the fall season is based upon 4th marking period grades from the previous school year, not end of year grades. Ineligible student-athletes may practice with their teams up to the first day of school, then the ineligibility period will commence. All incoming freshmen are considered academically eligible to participate.
In order for student-athletes to practice or participate in games, they must be present at the start of their 1st period (8:24am) class that day, unless they have an approved excused tardy, such as a doctor’s appointment. An unexcused absence on a Friday renders a student-athlete ineligible for Saturday games or competitions.
Also available to parents is the FHUHS Athletic Pamphlet for Parents and Athletes. This pamphlet is intended to serve as an informative guide for student’s interested in athletics at Fair Haven Union High School and their parents. The information provided, however, is only a brief overview. Copies will be available at the Kick Off, or complete information can be found in the Parent/Student Handbook.
Schedules for all FHUHS teams can be accessed on the activities page of the school website. When you click on the sport of choice, you will be directed to a national scheduling website called LeagueMinder, and here you will be able to sign up for email notifications of cancellations, time changes and rescheduled dates. When visiting this site, go to www.viewmyschedule.com and create an account with your contact information.
