All student athletes must have a current physical to play an IHSA sport. The actual paper physical must be signed by the athlete, parent, and physician. The physical also needs to be dated and have the physicians stamp on it. The physical must be turned into the Athletic Office on or before the official start of their sport.
*Incoming Freshmen* may use their physical for sports from student registration. Our school nurse will have the Freshmen Physicals on file.
