Eligibility & Participation Forms

Athletics eligibility and participation forms will be completed online this year using our new ATHLETICS PORTAL at the following link:

https://sequoyahschools.rankonesport.com

Parents/guardians, you will be asked for a student ID number for your student during the early steps of the process. Incoming freshmen received a slip with their ID number during freshman orientation. Returning students will use your lunch/cafeteria number. Returning students can find this four-digit student ID number on schedule printouts and on the parent portal. If you need help obtaining your student ID number, setting up your athletics portal account, or any of the steps within the athletic portal, please call or email Tonya Soap (918-453-5400, Ext. 5954, tonya-soap@cherokee.org) or Marcus Crittenden (918-453-5177, marcus-crittenden@cherokee.org). 

Others who can assist with obtaining student ID numbers are Karen Dodge-Kelso (918-453-5426, karen-dodge-kelso@cherokee.org), Stephani Rutherford (918-453-5168, stephani-rutherford@cherokee.org), and Denise King (918-453-5170, denise-king@cherokee.org).

The forms that we need 1st are the Physical and "Athletics Participant Form." These forms will be required prior to participation in any practice or camp. You will still use a paper form for the physical. The Athletics Participant Form (which includes concussion and sudden cardiac arrest acknowledgements) will be completed online. We will send a “Changing Schools” paper form for parent and student signatures later. 

All other forms will be completed online. Please complete all eligibility/participation forms at your earliest opportunity, at least 1 week prior to the first scrimmage or game in which a student athlete wants to participate. New students will do all forms. These will be reviewed to determine the eligibility status [eligible for varsity, eligible for sub-varsity only (JV/freshman level), or not eligible at any level] for each student according to OSSAA rules. We will notify parents/guardians of students who are determined to be ineligible for varsity or ineligible at any level of their status and will discuss the process to become eligible. Returning students are not required to do the Eligibility Questionnaire. Parents/guardians can download your student's physical and other completed forms as needed while logged into your athletics portal account.
