• A physical examination is required by PIAA for an athlete to be eligible to participate in an interscholastic sport.  The physical must be completed after June 1st for fall sports participation and shall be effective, regardless of when performed during a school year until the next May 31st.
    For Winter and Spring Sports: A reexamination or re-certification is required for each subsequent sports season if the student (a) suffers an illness or injury which renders the student unable to participate in 25% or more of the Regular Season Contests in the immediately preceding sports season; and/or (b) suffers an illness or injury which resulted in absence from school for ten (10) or more days and/or which requires surgery.

    Winter Sports Season begins on Friday, November 16th.

    PIAA requires all student-athletes to complete a physical examination for participation in an interscholastic sport.  The physical must be completed after June 1, 2018 and shall be effective for the school year.  All student-athletes must submit a completed physical packet by Friday, November 9th, 2018 to ensure participation on the first day of try-outs Friday, November 16th.

    If you participated in a Fall 2018 sport, you must complete and return a REPEAT ATHLETE FORM by Friday, October 26th so that it can be reviewed by the Sports Medicine Staff to hopefully ensure participation on Friday, November 16th.  

    Physical Packets are available at the MS and HS Main offices or from the links above.  Physical packets and Repeat Athlete Forms must be current and past packets will not be accepted.

    Any questions, please contact the Athletic Office or Sports Medicine Office.
