MIDDLE SCHOOL PARENTS - Please REMEMBER to schedule your child’s sports physical for the 2017-2018 school year ! ! !   This is a State of New Jersey requirement ! ! !

All Middle School athletes are REQUIRED to have a physical once a year which must be dated within 365 days of the first official day of practice. The Preparticipation Physical Evaluation (PPE) may ONLY be completed by a licensed physician, advanced practice nurse (APN), or physician assistant (PA) that has completed the Student-Athlete Cardiac Assessment professional development module. It is recommended that you verify that your medical provider has completed this module before scheduling an appointment for a PPE.

Physical Evaluation and History Forms MUST BE COMPLETED AND APPROVED prior to participating in a sport (including practice). Sports physical and history forms may be found on the left under Handouts.

Every athlete needs a Health History Update EVERY SEASON.   History Forms must be dated within 90 days of the first day of practice and completed every season.
