DO NOT SUBMIT A SPORT PHYSICAL THAT WILL EXPIRE PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF TRYOUTS - forms will be returned.  Call the health office for assistance.


DEFINITION OF A CURRENT SPORT PHYSICAL ON FILE – A sports physical (Form E and Form F) that has been handed in to your nurse for sports clearance within the past year AND the date of your physical is within a calendar year from your first day of tryouts.  For example, if the date of your physical was 8-17-19, that means it will expire on 8-17-20.  If the first day of your tryout is on or before 8-09-20, then your physical is current.  If your tryout starts on 8-10-20 or later, then your sports physical has expired, is not current and a new physical is needed.   This definition applies to new sports physicals as well.
