Student athletes who are intending to participate in their first sport of the school year must present a completed PIAA pre-participation Physical Form to the coach on the first day of try-outs. The form has been updated by PIAA. Only the updated form will be accepted bythe Athletic Office.
This form, requires a physician's report and signature, dated no earlier than June 1st and is valid for the entire school year, unless the athlete suffers a serious illness or injury. Subsequent sports seasons require a re-certification form (Section 8), signed by the athlete and a parent or guardian. In the event that an athlete was injured or had a significant illness at the end of the previous season, a recertification signed by a physician, (Section 9), is required before the athlete will be permitted to participate. Section 5 is a new COVID release waiver (new in 2020)
Student athletes who do not present the PIAA Physical Form on the first day of try-outs will be unable to participate in try-outs and/or practice.
