According to the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association, students may not practice or participate in interscholastic athletics until there is evidence of a physical examination and parental permission.
Physical examinations may be given by the school doctor or the family physician prior to the beginning of each season. There will be no charge for examinations by the school doctor; however, parents may prefer to have the family physician give the physical examination. The school cannot be held responsible for any fee charged by your personal physician.
When physical examinations are scheduled at the school for a sports season, the student must be present on that designated date with a parent's signature on the required form and his or her athletic fee paid. If the student fails to report with the appropriate paperwork, or come out late for a sport, he or she must secure your physical examination at personal expense.
