Sports Physical Requirement

  • Every athlete must have a sports physical on file with the Activities Office. Sports physicals are typically valid for three years. This year, any student whose sports physical set to expire between March 12, 2020 and the end of the 2020-2021 school year will now be valid through the 2020-2021 school year. All incoming students and students participating in athletics for the first time will need to submit a valid sports physical to the Activities Office.
