Not Necessarily - This section is mainly for the teams that will be traveling outside North Carolina to play in tournaments or the Junior National Championships. Several states (Florida is one, but not NC) require that Medical Release Forms be notarized. Thus, many tournaments are requesting that notarized medical release forms be shown at the tournament check-in. So, if you're planning on traveling outside of North Carolina to tournaments, it would be a good idea to go ahead and get the release forms notarized. Remember, these forms do not need to be sent into the Region, but should be carried with the teams to all competitions and practices in the event an emergency should arise.
