If you are a new athlete to Special Olympics, you must complete these forms BEFORE you start pratice – that includes a medical visit or having your medical provider fill out a form.
If you are a returning athlete and need to update your medical forms or other forms, you need to do so BEFORE your medical expires.
The following three forms are necessary to be eligible to participate. Submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org or turn in at practice.
Athlete Registration Form (NEW 12/2017)- This form asks for contact and other information.
Medical Form (Application for Participation in Special Olympics North Dakota) (NEW 12/2017)- This form is designed to identify health concerns that are more common among people with intellectual disabilities and clear an athlete to participate. Please fill out the Health History section on pages 1 and 2. If you do not understand any parts of the form, you may leave those parts blank to be discussed during the exam. The Physical Exam section on page 3 should be filled out and signed by a licensed medical professional (for example, Physician, Registered Nurse Practitioner, or Physician Assistant).
Athlete Release Form (NEW 12/2017) – This form goes over some important details about Special Olympics participation. New athletes will need to complete. Athletes who already have the 2017 release form on file will need to complete the new release form when their medical is due. Please take care with question 4.
If an athlete wishes to drive separately and not ride the bus to out-of-town events, a transportation release must be signed before the event. If this is not done, the athlete will not be allowed to compete. Athletes with a driver’s license are NOT permitted to drive themselves to any tournaments where transportation is provided by SOND. This release form applies only to athletes riding with parents or other family members and/or athletes driving separately with staff members/group homes
