      Family Physician Sports Physicals

      • Family physician sports physicals (SEE LINK AT BOTTOM TO PRINT COPY OF PHYSICAL PACKET)

        Any physical given by a family physician MUST be dated AFTER May 1st to be accepted for the school year. Any physical dated before May 1st will NOT be accepted by the Athletic Training Staff. All physicals completed by a family physician MUST be completed on the PIAA physical packet which can be found on the Athletic Training Department page or picked up at the school. 
        1. CAUTION: if you choose to get a physical from your family physician and your child has a change in health status (illness, injury, medication change, etc.) after the physical was handed in, then you MUST return to the ORIGINAL PHYSICIAN who performed your son or daughter's sports physical to receive a medical clearance, called SECTION 6, before participation in a 2nd or 3rd sport. 
        Family physician sports physical: the parents will need to coordinate a second doctor's appointment with the ORIGINAL PHYSICIAN who performed the sports physical to have SECTION 6 completed.  This is a PIAA rule with no exceptions. 
      • Physical Re-certification for Multiple Sport Athletes (SEE LINK AT BOTTOM TO PRINT COPY OF RE-CERT PACKET)

        Prior to the start of your athlete's 2nd or 3rd sport, each athlete must complete SECTION 7: PIAA Re-cerfication by Parent/Guardian.  This form can be found below the PIAA Physical Packet and is a supplemental medical history that documents any changes in personal information or illnesses/injury/surgery/meds that may have occurred during the previous sports season or since the athlete's original sports physical.  This form can be downloaded from the Physical Re-Certification link.  Once handed in, the Athletic Training Staff will review SECTION 7, and one of two things will happen:
        1. If no changes in health status occur, then your athlete will be cleared for the next season during the school year without any more documentation being needed.  
        2. If your child experiences a change in health status (illness, injury, medication change, etc.), regardless of how minor, an additional form called SECTION 8 is required to medically clear the athlete for further sports participation.  This clearance can only come from the PHYSICIAN WHO PERFORMED THE ORIGINAL PHYSICAL.
