All sports physicals examination dates must be within 365 days of the first day of practice. If you had a sports physical the previous year on or after the date of the start of your season, then your physical is valid for that season – provided that it is being submitted on the school forms. Make sure the VISION EXAM is completed on your sports physical form prior to turning it in. If your vision exam is worse than 20/40, you will be required to be corrected with contacts or glasses to better than 20/40 for athletic clearance. All sports physical form must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the start of the season to the trainer. Physical exams must be reviewed and approved by the Lenape District School Physicians prior to an athlete being medically cleared for participation. This process could take up to 3-5 days.
Each season requires the Health History Questionnaire – Part A to be filled out by a parent/guardian before your child is cleared for participation. Part A does NOT need to be signed by a physician.
