NTSD Return to Athletic and Co-Curricular Participation

Fall sports are just around the corner, and we hope to see our Lancers take to the fields, courts, and courses!  If you’re interested in participating in fall sports at Neshannock, please be sure to carefully read over all registration requirements taking note of the upcoming deadline.

Additionally, any student planning to work out, condition, or practice with a school-sponsored athletic team, organization, or club – in or out of season – must complete and turn in the COVID-19 and Communicable Disease Waiver in order to participate.  A form must be submitted for each activity.  For instance, a student athlete participating in both tennis and band must submit two waivers, one to the tennis coach and one to the band director.  An electronic waiver is available on FamilyID.  Hard copy forms are to be turned in to the individual — coach, advisor, director, etc. — in charge of the team, organization, or club.
