Athletics Placement Procedures

The Athletics Department has adopted a NYS approved process for screening students to determine their readiness to compete in interscholastic athletic competition by evaluating their physical maturity, fitness, and skill.

NHCS sports physical exam forms must be completed, including a health history signed by a parent, and returned to the building nurse prior to trying out for sports. Physicals may be done by your private physician or by our school nurse practitioner.

Required New York State Physical Exam Form

If your child will be entering a mandated grade in the fall, you are required to provide the district with a copy of a physical exam within 30 days of the start of the school year. This physical cannot be any more than 12 months old.

If your child plans to play a sport, this exam will serve as a sport’s physical too. New York State requires BMI and WSC (body mass index and weight status category) on mandated physicals.

Access the NYS Health Examination Form.

Return the form to the school building nurse.

District Pre-Participation/Interval Sports Health History Form

The Pre-Participation/Interval Sports Health History form should be used prior to each sport season. It is NOT a substitute for the mandated yearly sports physical.

Access the District Pre-participation/Interval Sports Health History Form.

Return the form to the school building nurse.


  1. All bona-fide students of the New Hartford Central School District who meet the eligibility requirements according to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association are welcome to try out for New Hartford Central School District athletics teams.
  2. Tryouts are offered with the understanding that cuts may be made by the coach according to the pre-season criteria, the ability level of the athlete and the nature of the sport or the facility. When a cut is made, it should be done in a manner consistent with Policy #6020. Interscholastic athletics is both an extra curricular and an elective activity.
  3. It is our belief that teams below the varsity level are for the purpose of preparing underclass athletes for competition at the varsity level.
  4. Seventh and eighth grade students who try out for a junior varsity or varsity team must have a recommendation from a district coach or a physical education staff member in order to participate in the New York State Selective Classification Program.
  5. A coach who must cut players is required to establish criteria for making the team. These criteria must be in writing and must contain measurable objectives and will be given to all athletes. A copy of the criteria must be submitted to the Athletic Director before cuts are made.
  6. When making cuts, do not post lists. Meet individually with all who tried out. Praise those who made it and talk about what the others have to do to improve. For modified cuts, the varsity coach is encouraged to help out.
  7. Before making cuts, each coach must call/meet with the Athletic Director to review the process so that consistent procedures are followed.

Additional information may be found in the Coaches Handbook.
