Required Forms

PIAA COMPREHENSIVE INITIAL PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION-updated 6/1/12

Sandy Run Middle School, in accordance with PIAA regulations, requires that all students must be administered a physical examination by their private physician prior to any participation in athletics. The forms documenting the exam are due in to the nurse’s office prior to the first day of tryouts. For the fall season, any physical after June 1st is acceptable and will remain in effect for the entire school year except in the case of a severe injury.

The PIAA has recenly passed a new physical evaluation procedure for students’ participating in inter-scholastic athletics. The new mandate will make it more cost-effective for parents and allow for more participation by students, while still maintaining the highest degree of safety for all participants.

The PIAA has passed a memorandum to allow student-athletes to have one physical per year for participation in sports. To quote the new rule:

“INITIAL EVALUATION: Prior to any student participating in Practices, Inter-School Practices, Scrimmages, and/or Contests, at any PIAA member school in any school year, the student is required to (1) complete a Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation (CIPPE); and (2) have the appropriate person(s) complete the first four Sections of the CIPPE Form. Upon completion of Sections 1, 2, and 3 by the parent/guardian, and Section 4 by an Authorized Medical Examiner (AME), those Sections must be turned in to the Principal, or the Principal’s designee, of the student’s school for retention by the school. The CIPPE may not be performed earlier than June 1st and shall be effective, regardless of when performed during a school year, until the next May 31st.

SUBSEQUENT SPORT(S) IN THE SAME SCHOOL YEAR: Following completion of a CIPPE, the same student seeking to participate in Practices, Inter-School Practices, Scrimmages, and/or Contests in subsequent sport(s) in the same school year, must complete Section 5 of this form and must turn in that Section to the Principal, or Principal’s designee, of his or her school. The Principal, or the Principal’s designee, will then determine whether Section 6 need be completed. ”

Sandy Run Middle School, as a full-fledged member of the PIAA, will require the new forms. All forms should be turned in to the nurse’s office.
