Athletic Physical Process and Baseline Concussion Testing

Baseline Concussion Testing is REQUIRED for all student-athletes who participate in Penn-Trafford sponsored sports.

Baseline Concussion Testing Schedule

Please contact the athletic trainers to verify testing time availability.  Baseline tests can be completed after school on various days.  Please call 724-744-0580 or contact the athletic trainers via email to schedule an appointment.

Standardize Assessment of Concussion (S.A.C. Test)

The recommended baseline test for Penn-Trafford athletes is the Standardized Assessment of Concussion (S.A.C.) Test and is offered free of charge to any Penn-Trafford student-athlete.  The test takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and no special equipment is needed. 
Other forms of up-to-date baseline testing (ImPact testing for example) results should be submitted with athletic physical packet in order to provide another assessment tool for the Athletic Trainers in the event a concussion is sustained.


PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Exam

All student athletes are required to submit the  2017-18 CIPPE Athletic Physical Packet  in order to participate in athletics.   Forms must be submitted no less than 2 weeks before the start of the season, so the school nurse can review in order to provide final clearance.  Physical will NOT be cleared the same day they are turned in.

CIPPE Re-Certification Process

If an athlete wishes to participate in a subsequent sports season they must submit Section 7: Re-Certification by Parent/Guardian no more than 6 weeks prior to the start of the next season. 

  • Fall athlete → Winter or Spring Season
  • Winter athlete → Spring Season

Once Section 7 has been submitted and reviewed by the Athletic Trainers, if an athlete sustained an injury and/or illness (check "Yes" in any of the questions in Section 7) then the athlete must have Section 8: Re-Certification by Licensed Physician of Medicine or Osteopathic Medicine  completed by an MD or DO before they will be allowed to participate in the subsequent sports season. 

  • If injuries and/or illnesses are reported when they occur, the Athletic Trainers can help manage the necessary paperwork to minimize physician visits and out of pocket expenses for subsequent sports season participation.
  • All athletes (MS & HS) in all sports (Varsity & Club) must follow the PIAA athletic physical process

Please refer to the  ANNOUNCEMENTS page for Re-Certification dates offered at Penn-Trafford High School
