#1:  2014-15 Sports Physicals

 
Every student-athlete must have a completed sports physical on file with the Athletic Trainer before beginning a sport.  Once this is on file, a recertification form must be completed for each subsequent sport throughout the school year.  Only physicals dated/verified after June 1, 2014 will be valid.
 
We offer Sports Physicals at the school TWO DATES for each school year: one in June and one in August. 
The physical is then valid for the entire school year.
  

Physical packets are available in the MS Office, HS Athletic Office, or downloaded and printed HERE.

Recertification forms are available in the MS Office, HS Athletic Office, or downloaded and printed HERE
 
Please complete the packet and take it to your family doctor to complete, or go to one of the following Urgent Care walk-in clinics and ask for a sports physical:
