Athletic Placement Process (FLMS Students Playing Up)

Bedford Central School District 

Athletic Placement Process 

Winter 2017-2018

Below is a description of the process by which 7th or 8th graders can become eligible to take part in a Fox Lane High School team.  This process in meant for the rare athlete that has both the physical and emotional tools to play with older athletes.  This process is a state requirement, including the physical fitness test component.  


Step 1. Parent or student athlete contacts Varsity Head Coach regarding student’s interest in

          playing up no later than October 15, 2017.  The coach will then submit the student’s name to

           the Athletic Director via email with the school nurse CC’d on the email.

Step 2: Parent of the athlete registers their child for the appropriate FLHS program grades 9-12 on

          Family ID during the open registration period.  Please note registering an athlete does not mean

          they have passed the Advanced Placement Process and have made the team.


Step 3. The Varsity Head Coach performs a skill evaluation no later than October 20, 2017.  The

             evaluation is returned to the AD’s office.


Step 4. District Medical Director meets with students recommended to approve physical

            maturity level for sport desired on a TBD between October 25-30th, 2017. 


Step 5. The coach contacts the FLMS assistant principals to verify that the student is in

            good standing both academically and behaviorally.  The coach will then contact

            the student’s physical education teacher of record to verify that they student is in

           good standing.


Step 6. Physical Fitness test comprised of five components is administered by a FLMS

            physical education teacher.  Students must pass all five in order to move on in the

             process. Coach Miller at FLMS will administer this test on November 2, 2017 - there are no

              make-up dates for this test.


Step 7: The Athletic Director will notify the Head Varsity Coach whether the student has passed the

              Advanced Placement Process.  The coach will then contact the family.
