2019-20 Sport Physical Information:
All student-athletes must complete a physical examination and corresponding PIAA CIPPE paperwork in order to be able to participate on any athletic team. Per PIAA rules, this physical exam MUST be performed or certified after June 1, 2019 – NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE TO THIS DATE. All athletes that wish to participate in more than one season must complete Section 7 of the CIPPE form (see CIPPE Section 7 link below) to be re-certified for subsequent seasons.
If a student-athlete is injured and seeks medical attention during a season they must have Section 8 of the CIPPE form (see CIPPE Section 8 link below) completed by the attending physician before they can participate in a subsequent season. It is recommended that you have Section 8 filled out at the time your student is cleared by the physician so you will not have to return and have the form filled out at a later date.
The school district will sponsor sport physicals once a year, which will be held on Monday, June 3rd from 6:00PM-9:00PM. All student athletes (Fall, Winter & Spring) are invited and encouraged to attend the school physicals. Physical packets will be handed out when students sign up for a Fall sport during lunch periods on May 2nd and May 3rd. Any student-athlete who does not plan on doing a Fall sport but does plan on doing a Winter or Spring sport should pick up a physical packet during the Fall signups or extra physical packets can be picked up in the Athletic Office or Middle School Office. The cost for the school sport physical is $5 (if pre-registered - directions on how to pre-register is on the physical packet cover letter and can be found linked below) or $20 (walk-ins on the day of the sport physicals) and checks should be made payable to: Oley Valley School District. All students who pre-register will be given a specific report time for the school physicals. All walk-ins on the day of the physicals should report at 8:00PM. If you need a referral to obtain a physical because you are unable to attend the school physical or you have any questions about these requirements please call the Athletic Office at 610-987-4111 Ex. 2. WE HIGHLY ENCOURAGE ALL STUDENT-ATHLETES TO ATTEND THE SCHOOL-SPONSORED PHYSICALS SO THAT THERE IS NO DELAY IN CLEARING A STUDENT FOR PARTICIPATION IN A FALL, WINTER OR SPRING SPORT.
