Instructions for Final Forms
STEP 1 Go to https://watterson.finalforms.com/ All data entered will be stored securely from season to season, year to year. Initially, you will have to input all data and you and your student(s) will have to sign all forms. Annually, you will have to update any changes to your data and you and your student(s) will have to sign all forms. All forms must be filled out, signed and submitted prior to the start of tryouts. Applicable fees must be paid by September 15.
STEP 2 Click “New Account” under the Parents Icon.
STEP 3 Enter your name, date of birth, email address and click “Register.”
STEP 4 Check your email inbox (for the address supplied in Step 3). You will receive an email prompting you to click a link to confirm and complete your registration. Click the link and create your password. Enter and confirm password. Click “Confirm Account”. NOTE: If you do not receive an email, check your spam folder. If still missing, go to “Parent” login and click “Resend Confirmation” at the bottom of the box.
STEP 5 Upon completing Step 4 you will be signed in and able to register your first student athlete. Click “Register Student”. Enter student name, email, gender, graduation date and date of birth. On this screen, there is an option to register a second parent if additional parental access is needed to manage student(s). When complete, click “Create Student.”
STEP 6 Select all sports your student intends to play during the school year. Click “Submit Selection.”
STEP 7 Click-on, fill out, sign and click “Submit Form” to complete each of the following forms: Permission to Participate Form*, Rider Permission Form*, Emergency Medical Form, Permission to Leave Form, OHSAA Authorization Form*, Parent Sportsmanship Form, Student Sportsmanship Form* and General Form*. Forms with asterisks, also require the student’s signature (See instruction below). Initially, all forms appear in RED, indicating that they are incomplete. Once the forms are filled out, signed and submitted, they will turn ORANGE indicating that a student signature is required or they will turn GREEN indicating the form is complete, requiring no further action. Upon completion of the last form, click “Notify Kid” which will generate an email notification prompting your student to login, register and sign all forms requiring their signature. (Student registration is the same process as parent registration: Steps 3, 4 and 5 above. Students have limited site access for the sole purpose of reading and signing forms.) From the “My Students” page, you can edit/update data of registered students and you can register additional students. To register additional students, click “Register Student” and repeat Steps 5 through 7. Note: you may add/remove sports at any time until the selection of teams, following tryouts; though, you and your student will both be required to look over and re-certify that all data is correct.
Step 8 From the “My Students” page, you can pay fees and/or checkout. Click the green “Pay Fees” button and click one of the five options that applies to your family. Click the agreement box. Click “Proceed to Checkout”. On the “Check Out” page provide the applicable information and click the appropriate button.
Step 9 Print an OHSAA Physical Examination Form (PEF) from the Athletics menu and take it, with your student, to a doctor for an examination. Return the completed PEF to your athlete’s head coach or to the Athletic office, prior to tryouts. Physicals are good for one calendar year from the date they were administered. Once the Athletic Department receives your PEF, the school will update the status of the student athlete’s PEF and the expiration date will be visible on Final Forms. You will receive reminders 60, 30, 15 and 5 days from the PEF expiration date.
From the “My Students” page, parents can edit data for active students, register new students, update forms, pay fees and monitor action items to be completed. All student headings will remain red until all facets of registration are complete, at which point they will turn green. Students are not eligible to participate in sporting activities until the above registration process is complete. If you have any questions, contact Doug Etgen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
