Each year the PIAA, as well as the Upper Darby School District, requires a PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-participation Physical Evaluation (CIPPE) before a student can take part in any activities involving interscholastic sports. This physical must be performed and dated no earlier than June 1st and shall be effective, regardless of when performed during a school year, only until May 31st of that same school year. For this upcoming school year, those valid dates are June 1, 2021 – May 31, 2022. Students cannot participate in try-outs or practice until a doctor has cleared them using the PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-participation Physical Evaluation (Section 7). Failure to submit a registration and physical prior to the start of tryouts for your sport will result in a loss of participation for the upcoming season (until all necessary forms have been completed, and at the discretion of the coach/athletic department).
The whole CIPPE form, including Section 7, which must be filled out by your child's physician, can be found HERE.
