Physicals and Sports Permission Forms

A current physical exam and permission from parents are required to play sports.

Before a student may try out for a sport, he/she must have a copy of a current physical exam on file in the Nurses’ Office and have the Athletic Program Permission Slip/Medical Recertification Form completed by his/her parent(s). Forms for physicals (Health Appraisal Forms) are available online or in the Nurses’ Office.

A physical exam with your own health care provider is preferred, as they generally are more familiar with your child. A physical exam is good for 12 months from the last day in the month the physical was done. If the physical exam is good to start the season, the athlete may complete the season. In addition, students must have been immunized against tetanus within the past ten years.

The parent Sports Permission Form is available in the Nurses’ Office or on the Athletics website (see Forms and Documents) and must be completed, signed, and turned into the school nurse no earlier than 30 days before a sport is scheduled to start. Please note: A separate permission form is required for each sport season that a student wants to participate in during the school year.
