Online Student – Athlete Registration for Sports Participation
We are very excited to announce that the West Central High School Athletic Department has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign athletic participation forms for your students. The most exciting news is that FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also pre-populates information wherever possible, for each of your students, saving you time.
You may review your data at any time to verify it is current. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and after any update.
We are asking that ALL parents of athletes use FinalForms to register your students for Athletic participation at West Central Middle/ High School.
Please register at: https://westcentral-in.finalforms.com and follow the prompts to create your account, create your students and sign your forms.
Click on the Parent Playbook (attached) to get started in FinalForms. If you require any support during the process, scroll to the page bottom and click “Use Support”.
Thank you for your assistance in streamlining our paperwork processes at West Central Middle/ High School and it’s Athletic Department.

Concussion Management and Sudden Cardiac Arrest Acknowledgement
The Indiana state legislature and Indiana Department of Education require that all parents and students receive educational materials on Concussion recognition, treatment and return to play criteria. This information must be read by both student and parent, and a concussion acknowledgement form must be signed and on file in the Memorial athletic office prior to beginning sports activity each year. Over the past several years concussion awareness has become a very important topic in athletics, especially at the high school level. Below are the latest forms available.
