Requirements for Participation in Athletics

Download Physical, Concussion and Random Drug-Testing Forms

Middle school students who wish to participate in a school-sponsored, extra-curricular sport must have a:

-Current IHSAA physical form
-Signed concussion acknowledgement form
-Signed participation agreement in the student random drug-testing program

on file with the athletic office. These forms are available in the main office or can be downloaded using the above link. Forms dated after April 1, 2018 may be used for that spring 2018 and the 2018-19 school year.

These forms must be completely filled out with student and parent/guardian signature, along with insurance information, in order to participate in any try-out or practice. Physicals must be performed by a physician, physician's assistant (PA), or nurse practitioner (LPN).

IHSAA Rule 3-10 requires that "Between April 1 and student’s first Practice in preparation for interschool athletic participation, the student shall have a physical examination by, or shall provide certification from, a physician holding an unlimited license to practice medicine, a nurse practitioner or a physician assistant, who shall clear the student for athletic participation using the current IHSAA Preā€Participation Evaluation form."


Walk-in physicals are available at the MinuteClinic inside CVS at Getz and Illinois Road.

  • The physician's (PA or LPN) signature must be hand-written. NO signature stamps will be accepted!
  • The physician's (PA or LPN) signature AND license number must be on page 2.
  • If we receive an IHSAA physical with a stamped doctor's signature, it will not be accepted and considered invalid.

Parents and students must sign at the bottom of page 1 and on page 4 of the physical.
