All students interested in going out for a Dock Mennonite Academy sport are required to complete a PIAA Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation and complete the Dock Online Registration. This online registration is a feature of VNN and is located just above our “Latest Photo Galleries” section on the Dock Athletics Homepage (Will Move to the top Menu Bar later in the summer). Most of the PIAA Pre-Participation Evaluation is available for online e-signatures in our new registration, but the medical info from Sections 5 and 6 must be handed in to the Athletic Department. This physical evaluation should be completed after June 1 for the first season of competition in the new athletic year. For all fall sport participants, this completed form must be turned in to the athletic office by August 14, or prior to participating in an official Dock sport team practice. We strongly encourage you to keep a copy of all documents for your own record keeping. Follow along with the tutorial located in the articles section on the front of the home page on Questions regarding online registration can go to Palmer Trolli, AD Assistant
