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.
If you already have an account then that’s all that you need to do is review the information to make sure that there are no changes that need to be made and electronically sign each document. This only needs to be done once per school year. These forms will then carry over from sport to sport if your child is a multi-sport athlete.
Please go to the Parent Playbook (see below) to get started in FinalForms if you have not yet created an account. You will register at – https://lorain-oh.finalforms.com – and electronically complete all forms. If you need any support during the process, scroll to the page bottom and click “Use Support”. You may also contact the Athletic Department if you need further assistance – 440-830-4008. This information will need to be completed prior to your child trying out for the team this Winter.
