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
