As many of you know, the amount of paperwork that athletes, and their parents, are required to complete has become overwhelming. With that in mind, I am excited to announce that the Lorain City Schools Athletic Department has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service. FinalForms allows the parents and athletes to complete and sign athletic participation forms online. The most exciting news is that FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year which means you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also prepopulates information wherever possible saving you valuable time.
You will just need to review your information once per school year to verify information is current and sign the forms. These forms will then carry over from sport to sport if your child is a multi-sport athlete. Many of our athletes had accounts created last year so these individuals will just need to update their information and electronically sign most forms.
Please go to the Parent Playbook (see below) to get started in FinalForms. If you require any support during the process, scroll to the page bottom and click “Use Support”.
We are asking that all parents of athletes use FinalForms. Please register at – https://lorain-oh.finalforms.com – and electronically complete all forms. This information will need to be completed prior to your child trying out for the team this Fall. If it is not completed prior to the first scheduled day of tryouts then your son/daughter will not be permitted to try out for the team.
