TVYFL requires a Medical Release Form signed by a licensed medical physician of your choice in order for your child to be eligible to play tackle football. If your child has already had their annual wellness exam, check with their pediatrician to see if they will fill out the paperwork without an additional exam. Zoom Care and other similar care providers also offer sports wellness exams.
TVYFL also requires a waiver for our flag football participants.
In addition to the medical forms above, 7th and 8th Grade Players are required to have a Baseline Concussion Test performed. **NOTE: If your player did a BCT last season and has not had any concussion issues, last year's test is still valid**
This test can be performed at home by visiting. https://baselinetesting.com/
Choose RESOURCES -- BASELINE TESTING -- and go to "individual test taker" options. The baseline test costs $20; proof of testing will be emailed to you and you can forward it to our registrar.
The Portland Clinic provides in person testing for a fee of $30, but did reach out to say their resources are somewhat limited so they encourage people to use the online test when possible.
Testing is optional for 5th and 6th graders, but recommended. Flag and Rookie Tackle players do not need a baseline concussion test.
If you prefer to have your child tested in the clinic, call:
503-293-0161 ext. 4036 | or visit a licensed testing provider of your choice.
Registered players will have until July 31 to opt out of the season and receive a refund of their registration fee minus a $50 administrative handling charge. After that date, no refunds will be issued.
