Athletic Registration

Ridge High School has moved to electronic registration and submission of forms for all athletic programs. Students that intend to participate in Spring 2024 athletics at Ridge High School are asked to complete the following by February 21, 2024:

Please note: All pages of the athletic physical form must be scanned and uploaded as one document.

No registrations will be accepted after the first game of the season (April 1, 2024).

Step 1.Register Online via Genesis. (Registration opens January 30, 2024)

Login to your parent/guardian Genesis account and the FORMS tab. Open the Form for Athletic Participation and register for the athletic team/program your child is interested in. 

You may also register your child for the Unified Sports Program at Ridge High School. 

You may also register your child to use the Fitness Center. 

After completing the consents within the form, download, complete and upload the required athletic physical forms as directed below for district review. 

If you want to save your work you can click the green "UPDATE ANSWERS" button.   

Step 2. Upload the appropriate Athletic Physical Form(s) to Genesis for review.

The NJ Athletic Pre-Participation Physical Form is required for any student that is registering for interscholastic athletic participation.  

The first page, The History Form, is completed by a parent/guardian. 

The following pages of the form must be completed by a NJ licensed physician, based on a physical examination that has been done within 365 days of the first tryout/practice. 

The form MUST have the physician's original signature and office stamp on the Clearance Page or it will be rejected. 

If the exam date is more than 90 days from the first tryout/practice, a Health History Update Form is also required. To be safe, include this form with your submission.

These forms must be downloaded, printed, completed by a parent/guardian and a physician and then uploaded to Genesis for district review. 

For Spring 2024 participation, the date of exam must be after the following date:
Tennis - after March 11, 2023
All Other Sports - after March 14, 2023

The Health History Update Form is required for any student that has an Athletic Pre-Participation Physical Form on file from a previous season with a date of examination that is within 365 days of the first day of tryouts/practice. 

It is also required if you are submitting a new Athletic Pre-Participation Physical Form, based on an exam that is more than 90 days from the first tryout/practice. 

To be safe, include this form in your submission.

This form must be downloaded, printed, completed by a parent/guardian and uploaded to Genesis for review.


Please Note: Vision exam results are required as part of the Athletic Pre-Participation Physical Form (APP)  submission. If your child has their eyes examined by the physician completing the APP and they documented the vision exam results on the APP, then you do not need to provide anything more. If your child has their eyes examined by someone other than the physician completing the APP Form, please use the Vision Exam Results Form to submit. For example, an ophthalmologist, optometrist, or optician may complete this requirement. If the examiner has their own form, you may upload that. This is not a prescription, but visual acuity results. Download, print, complete and then upload the form to Genesis for review.


Step 3. Complete IMPACT testing 

All incoming Freshmen, Juniors or first time athletes, must complete cognitive testing, known as IMPACT Testing, in order to get medically cleared for athletic participation. (Marching Band and Color Guard members do NOT need to do IMPACT testing). This online examination must be done at home, on a computer. It takes 30-40 minutes to complete.  Please see the information on the Ridge Athletics webpages for information on how to login and do the test.

Step 4. Check Genesis for Status Updates

Updates to the status of your athletic submission can be viewed on the Athletics Tab on Genesis. Please check your emails for any communications regarding issues with your submission. The earlier you submit your registration, forms and complete IMPACT testing, the sooner the likelihood you will receive medical clearance. Once your child is fully cleared you will see a check mark indicating that he/she is “Cleared for Spring Athletics”: ✅ 

Information on Getting an Examination

If you need an examination in order to get the forms completed there are a few options:

Contact your private physician to secure an appointment for an athletic physical. 
2. Contact the Ridge High School school physician, Dr. Marc Silberman, at NJ Sports Medicine in North Plainfield.Dr. Silberman will be scheduling physicals in his office for students as office hours allow.

There is a fee for the exams which includes completion of forms. Bring a blank form with you.                  

NJ Sports Medicine  908-647-6464

3. Contact a local urgent care facility to schedule an athletic physical. Make sure that the examiner has completed the NJ State Professional Development Module that allows them to complete athletic forms. Bring a blank form with you for completion.

4. Some examinations cannot be done, due to insurance requirements, unless it has been a year from the last exam. If that is the case, your choice is #2 or #3 above. While we understand this issue, we are reviewing hundreds of forms and so we cannot guarantee that your forms will be reviewed and cleared if you submit them after February 21, 2024.
