  We are very excited that Southwest Licking Local School District has partnered with FinalForms, and on-line program which will enable you and your student to complete and file your athletic forms electronically.  FinalForms is immediately available for all students.  The ONLY form that you are still required to actually print, complete and file in the Athletic Department, is the actual OHSAA Physical form.  The physical form must be completed by the doctor and by law we are required to have a signed copy on file.  Once your student's physical is received the the athletic department we will input the expiration date into FinalForms and then you will receive automatic notifications when your student's forms need to be updated.
Click on the Parent Registration guide to get started in FinalForms.  This link is also available on the Southwest Licking Schools (  web pages.  We are asking that ALL student-athletes (grades 7-12) use FinalForms.  Even if your student's current physical paperwork does not expire until after the new school year begins, please register @ now and electronically complete all the forms!
