West Ottawa Middle School Athletics     

Q: What is Final Forms? What do I need one to participate? 

A:  Final Forms is an online registration service that will ensure compliance when it comes to athletics at West Ottawa.  Final Forms will track all medical and injury history and allow our coaches to have that information at their fingertips.  You will not be allowed to tryout/participate until you have registered via Final Forms.  Insurance can be paid to the Middle School Athletic office during school hours & posted evening hours or through Final Forms online.

For the 2020-2021 school year, athletic insurance will be $35.00. It can be paid online through Final Forms, cash or checks payable to WOPS.
