    Default Permission

    When your DD high school team requires an overnight stay at a hotel does the school require the parents to 'sign off' on the stay (either at the beginning of the season or for each event)?

    Had an interesting scenario with DD this evening and wanted to hear what other schools do.

    DD2 team has one overnight trip each season. I don't remember having to sign anything. They do have a strict set of rules to follow when traveling.

    We do not have a permission slip signed for our team.

    Yes. We have a form that must be signed. Good idea if ya want my opinion.
    A change up should be kept low so that if the hitter does time it, they have to make the secondary adjustment of going down to hit the ball also. 2 movements in the hitter doubles their chance of a bad swing. The combo of being able to read the pitcher's change up early and doing a backflip to keep it up in the zone is a deadly combo. - Bill Hillhouse

    Dd’s school does require permission slips and medical forms to be completed. How would they handle medication administration for kids who require meds? For example my dd needs to bring her epi-pen. School nurse has to sign off on it as well as dd’s doc. Also, wouldn’t airports potentially require documentation as well for the players under a certain age?

    Each coach in our school has to have and carry with them to all athletic events medical forms for each team member. We have a standard athletic package that each athlete must complete and turn in. It includes the medical forms, proof of insurance, Code of Conduct, ...

    DD's high school team never traveled as a team. However, she participated in a senior class trip that required a hotel stay. A permission slip was required prior to that event.

    We complete a travel form at the beginning of the year. Our team rides the bus to all weekday games so the form covers school travel for the entire season.
