All athletes are required to have a physical examination. All athletes should have their physicals prior to August 8, 2022. Make an appointment with your doctor early so that you do not miss tryouts or practices. We suggest you keep a copy of the physical forms. The athletic physical form is available on the athletic website or you can access it here. Per Illinois High School Association guidelines, your physical is only valid for 13 months from the actual date of physical. To avoid the possibility of the physical expiring and your daughter/son being ineligible, we urge you to have the exam during the summer months and prior to the start of fall tryouts/practices.
Information regarding student accident insurance will be emailed to you in the opening of school packet.

LOCKERS AND LOCKS
Athletic lockers are assigned to each athlete when equipment is issued. Each athlete must furnish a lock. Locks may be purchased at the bookstore. Lockers should be locked at all times.
Each athlete is directly responsible for all equipment/uniforms that are issued to the athlete. All equipment/uniforms must be turned in immediately following the conclusion of the season. Fees will be assessed for items that were issued but not returned by the athlete (including lost and stolen items). Any returning athlete who still has equipment out from the prior season will not be issued any other equipment or permitted to register at the book sale until this obligation has been taken care of.
The Glenbrook North Athletic Department has certified athletic trainers on staff. Our Head Athletic Trainer is Ryan Moran, and he can be reached at 847-509-2600 on school day afternoons. Our Assistant Trainers are Humaira Baig at 847-509-2674 and Stephanie Trybul at 847-509-2608.
BOYS AND GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY
All cross-country runners are expected to be in attendance and ready to practice on the first day of the fall season as determined by the IHSA calendar (typically the first Monday of the first full week in August).
All extenuating circumstances that may preclude a runner from attending the first practice require prior notification and approval from the Head Coach and the Athletic Director.
Mouth Guards-The rules require each player to have and wear a mouth guard that is visible and attached to the helmet – clear mouth guards are NOT allowed. If you have a particular problem, see your dentist for advice and counsel. Mouthguards are available at most sporting goods stores.
Football Shoes-The 2022 rules state that cleats on football shoes may be no longer than 1/2 inch in length. There are several different types of shoes available; however, if you purchase new shoes, be sure that they meet the requirement. Our staff strongly recommends shoes with screw-on cleats, not molded cleat shoes. To break in your shoes, get them early and wear them before practice starts.
Days of Practice-The Illinois High School Association rules state that a football player must have 12 days of practice before playing in his first game.
BOYS & GIRLS GOLF
The following fees for golf are fairly accurate estimates but are subject to change per the golf course)
All golfers should be prepared to pay a $25.00 daily tryout fee (payable directly to Heritage Oaks Golf Club on a daily basis). All golfers who make the team will be required to pay an additional fee of (approximately) $300.00 for the season (checks made payable to Glenbrook North High School).
Athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions. Athletic training is recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA), Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as an allied health care profession.
Athletic trainers are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Athletic trainers work under the direction of a physician as prescribed by state licensure statutes.
The athletic training academic curriculum and clinical training follows the medical model. Athletic trainers must graduate from an accredited baccalaureate or master’s program, and 70% of ATs have a master’s degree.
For more information on the education and skills of certified athletic trainers, please visit NATA At Your Own Risk.
Athletic Training Room Information
The Athletic Training Room opens at 11 a.m. on school days.
Student athletes are encouraged to take advantage of their free time (lunch, SRT, study hall) for injury evaluation, rehabilitation, and treatment. Athletic training services are provided until the conclusion of practices and games each day.
When an injury requires further evaluation by a physician, student athletes are required to obtain a written doctor’s note to return to the athletic trainers. The athletic trainers cannot proceed with injury clearance without this written documentation by the physician. It is always easier to get this note while still at the physician’s office; please make sure to ask for one before you leave your appointment.
On August 3, 2015, Governor Rauner signed into law SB 07 (Public Act 99-245), also known as the Youth Sports Concussion Safety Act. This legislation focuses on concussion management at the junior high and high school level.
In accordance with the law, Glenbrook District 225 has a written Return to Learn and Return to Play Protocol that are available for download below. In addition to being evaluated by the Certified Athletic Trainers, all concussions must also be evaluated by a physician. Glenbrook District 225 has specific paperwork that must be completed by the physician.
