Dear Parent/ Guardian,

The Athletic Department at Ludington Area Schools now hosts their Pre-Participation Athletic Forms online with BigTeams.This digital platform will allow you, and your student(s), to complete and access athletic forms via computer, tablet, or mobile phone. It is HIPAA, COPPA and FERPA compliant. A link to the privacy policy is located at the bottom of the Sign in page at https://studentcentral.bigteams.com/.

Parent and student must create separate accounts, using different emails and/or mobile numbers.

Important: Students must be sure to create accounts using accurate information, including their Official Name from school registration, DOB, high school graduation year and school. You can click SELF HELP on the right of the screen for walkthroughs of the account creation, account linking, and athletic forms functionality.
STEP 1. Go to https://studentcentral.bigteams.com/ once on the Login page, click on Sign Up to Create New Account - OR - With a smartphone, follow the Quick Account Instructions on the second page of this letter.

address or mobile phone number. (COPPA COMPLIANCE)
● Choose the type of account you wish to create.
● Complete the requested information.
● Be sure when choosing your school that you choose the school the student is attending.

STEP 2. Link the Parent account to the Student(s) account.
You will be led through this process after creating an account. If you do not link accounts at the time of
