#1:  2014-15 Sports Physicals

Every student-athlete must have a completed sports physical on file with the Athletic Trainer before beginning a sport. Only physicals dated/verified after June 1, 2014 will be valid. A recertification form is needed for each subsequent sport or if the physical was performed more than 6 weeks prior to the beginning of the sports season.
Physical packets are available in the MS Office, HS Athletic Office, or downloaded and printed HERE.
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.
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:
Recertification forms are available in the MS Office, HS Athletic Office, or downloaded and printed HERE
**More on the Recertification Form:
1. It lets the Sports Medicine staff know to pull the physical and assign it to the correct sport's folder for that season.
2. It lets the Sports Medicine staff know if there have been any new injuries that need to be addressed.
3. It does NOT need to be filled out by a doctor UNLESS the athlete has seen a doctor since their original physical date.  Then, the doctor needs to clear them for return to participation by signing the back of the recertification form. 


#2:  Emergency Information

To simplify tracking email addresses and problems logging into the system, we are switching to an Emergency Card for this year.  Please obtain this form from your coach the first week of practice or print and complete HERE.
