A 'Tradition of Excellence'
Gloversville Enlarged School District is proud of
its excellent athletics programs.
Athletics is a vital part of the entire educational process. Athletic
programs teach student-athletes values such as sportsmanship, teamwork,
leadership, respect, dedication and cooperation. It is our hope that
these values learned in the Gloversville Athletic Program stay with our
athletes for a lifetime.
The goal for this athletic website is to
improve communication among all stakeholders of the Gloversville
Physicals required for particpation in sports
In accordance with New York State Education law, any student
participating on an organized athletic team must have an annual
physical to participate. Physicals are good for a period of one
year from the date of the physical. Athletic
Health History Forms must
also be completed for each sport season. The form should be
filled out by a parent and then submitted to the School Nurse to
be completed. Students must have a physical in order to
participate in sports in the GESD.
The following options are available if your son or daughter
wants to participate on an athletic team:
1. Obtain a physical at the school. Physicals are done by the
District Chief Medical Officer.
2. Your child may get a sport physical by their private
physician. The physician MUST complete a Health
Appraisal Physical Form and
return it to the School Nurse.
If you choose to have the physical done by your private
physician, the completed physical form MUST be delivered prior
to the start of practice to the school nurse or Athletic office.
