All students are REQUIRED to have a CURRENT sports physical on file at school BEFORE they can try out or participate in any interscholastic sports.
The physical must remain “current” during the entire season of the sport; it must be completed within the past twelve months of the participation dates.
Those who need sports physicals need to present an “IHSA Pre-Participation Examination” form completed by the physician and the parents. An “Illinois Certificate of Child Health” form may also be used.
If you are entering 6th grade or are in 8th grade, it would be advised to have the Illinois form filled out by the physician, as it will count for your physical requirement for 6th or 9th grades.
