Information on Doctor's Visits
Part of our goal to provide the best health care possible to all student-athletes includes having a relationship with several well-qualified and experienced doctors in the area. We have established a network of doctors that are able to assist the students of Georgetown High School, Benold Middle School, and Forbes Middle School. If we feel that an injury needs to be examined by a doctor we will gladly assist you in setting an appointment to see one of our team doctors in a timely manner.
If you feel that your child needs to see a doctor (including emergency room visits) all we ask is that you communicate that with us. We are more than happy to seek opinions of any doctor you feel comfortable with.
It is required of all student-athletes that see a doctor for any injury or illness that they provide a note from the doctor upon returning to school. The note will be kept in their personal medical file in the athletic training room. Please visit our medical forms page to download the appropriate note to give to the doctor.The note should state the following:
*Any and all restrictions placed on the student-athlete for practice and/or competition.
*A time frame for how long the doctor wants the restrictions placed on the student-athlete.
*Any treatment that the doctor feels will benefit the student-athlete.
*Any alternative forms of conditioning that may be acceptable during practice (i.e. riding bike instead of running.)
Any student-athlete that is seen by a doctor and does not provide a doctors note will be required to sit out of all activity, including practices and games, until a note is provided to one of the Staff Athletic Trainers. If you feel your child needs to be held out of practice and you do not see a doctor, that needs to be communicated with the Athletic Trainer and the Head Coach of their sport. The communication must be via phone call. We do not accept parent notes brought by the student-athlete.
Any student-athletes that have restrictions placed on them for school sports must adhere to those same restrictions for any club sport they may be involved in. If they violate this rule they could face suspension from their school sports for a time to be determined by the coach of that sport.
Football Student-Athletes: If you are sick and show up to the athletic period, you will be required to workout at the discretion of the Head Football Coach and the Athletic Trainer
