Eligibility & Policies   top

Link to HNA Athletic Handbook (PDF, 2017-18 edition)

There are two steps required for athletes to register to participate on an athletic team at Holy Names Academy:

1. Register Online at FamilyID
HNA Athletics Registration at

Before a student may turn out for a sport, she and a parent must complete the online athletic registration and permission forms for Holy Names Academy athletics at the website FamilyID (

After submitting a one-time family registration with FamilyID, parents and their athletes must complete the registration for their athlete(s) AND complete online acknowledgement of three agreements:

• Parent Permission for Athletic Participation and Emergency Medical Treatment

• Acknowledgement of Concussion and Head Injury Information

• Acknowledgement of Athletic Department Handbook


2. Submit an Annual Physical Evaluation Form

WIAA Physical Form (PDF)Once a year, each student athlete must also download the printed form WIAA Preparticipation Physical Evaluation and History (PDF) or obtain a copy from the Athletic Office, undergo a physical examination by a physician licensed in the State of Washington, and submit the form (signed by the physician) to the Athletic Office. This form is valid for 13 months from the date signed; a new form must be on file with the Athletic Office each year the student intends to participate on any HNA athletic team(s).


Re-Register for Each Sport
Athletes trying out for additional sports later in the school year or in subsequent years for the same sport must return to the FamilyID website to re-register for each sport in each year, and, if necessary, update their contact, medical, or insurance information. Because the student’s information is stored online with FamilyID, this re-registration process will normally be brief. 


No student will be permitted to participate in athletic tryouts, practices, or games until registration is complete on the FamilyID site AND the annual Physical Evaluation form is filed with the Athletic Office.


Privacy Policy and Data Retention
After a student graduates from Holy Names Academy, or chooses not to continue to participate in interscholastic athletics, or leaves the school before graduating, she and her family have the right to request that most of her personal information be permanently deleted from FamilyIDs records. Personal information necessary for Holy Names Academy to verify the school’s compliance with state and federal law or regulations of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association may be retained. To request the information be deleted, call FamilyID at (888) 800-5583, Ext. 1.  All personal information is subject to the complete Privacy Policy of FamilyID, Inc., which is available on the firm’s website.



Athletic Policies

All athletes and their parents will be required to sign an Athletic Handbook acknowledgement before the start of each season.  Additional information on school policies is available in the HNA Parent/Student Handbook and Calendar, distributed prior to the start of each school year.
