FinalForms Launch

We are very excited to announce that the Charlestown 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, 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.

This will allow:

  • Coaches and trainers to have emergency information on each student through their mobile device
  • Parents to retrieve their information if an athlete decides to move and transfer

You may review your data at any time to verify it is correct. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and after any update.

We will be sending out the Parent Playbook to get started in FinalForms. If you require any support during the process, scroll to the page bottom and click “Use Support.”

We are asking that ALL parents of student-athletes use FinalForms. The Charlestown High School Athletic Department will no longer be accepting paper copies of the packets. The only form we will accept on paper is the Physical Examination Form.

Please register at: https://greaterclark-in.finalforms.com and follow the prompts to create your account, create your students and sign your forms.

We will be hosting a parent meeting for all student-athletes, and their parents, on Tuesday, July 25th at 6:00PM in the CHS Sports Arena to discuss the upcoming season, and to go over some things from FinalForms. A computer lab will be open and available for parents who would like to register their students that night.

Thank you for your assistance in streamlining our paperwork processes at Charlestown High School.

Pirate Baseball Fights Out Win Friday

On Friday evening, the Pirate Baseball team (3-4 overall; 0-0 MSC) hosted a team from Tri County, Michigan for a double header with New Albany. New Albany defeated Tri County, Michigan 13-3 in game one of the doubleheader, and the Pirates played Tri County following. Tri County jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the top of the first, but the Pirates answered with 1 in the bottom half and 3 in the bottom of the second and never looked back in route to the 19-5 win over Tri County, Michigan to earn their first win of the season. Andrew Snider (1-0) was the winning pitcher for the Pirates. On offense, the Pirates were led by Senior Brandon Love (2-3, run and 3 runs batted in) and Alec Sipes (4-4, 3 doubles and 1 run batted in) in a good offensive night. Head Coach Ricky Romans commented, “Very sloppy game for both teams. We didn’t come out ready to play in the field tonight but we got it together after the 1st inning. With a young squad, that could have have set a bad tone for us for the rest of the night but to the guys credit, they stayed focused and got through it.” The Pirates faced off against New Washington in a double header on Saturday, and will next open MSC play tonight, traveling to Eastern.

I look forward to next week, where we will be in a 4-way at Providence on Tuesday, New Albany Relays on Thursday and on Friday the 4×1 relay team as well as Steven Delaney will be traveling to Lafayette Jeff High School for the Sprinters Showcase.” Great job Pirates and best of luck this week!

Outstanding performances by DeAsia and Carly taking 1st place in their events, and Ilayah and DeAsia taking 2nd place in their events. Most all girls scored points for us and improvement in times/distances from our first meet.
