Requirements for Participation in High School Athletics
All Physical Exam documents as well as the online agreements must be completed as prescribed by the State of New Jersey. The purpose is to protect the health, safety and welfare of your child. A receipt will be given to you documenting the physical exam forms and date received. Physical Exam forms are collected and then must be approved by the School Physician; therefore, it may take up to two weeks for the approval process to be completed. Once paperwork is reviewed, an email will be sent stating your level of clearance. You must check your email to see when this authorization has been given. Participation is only permitted after this authorization is granted.
The following is a list and explanation of all forms that must be completed before your child is eligible for participation. All but the Physical Exam form are contained within the FamilyID Program and are agreed to via electronic signatures of both the athlete and his/her guardian.
1) Physical Exam Form An athletic physical exam is valid for 365 days from the date of the examination. According to N.J.A.C. 6A:16-2.2(h) lii (4), an incomplete form will be returned to the student's medical provider for completion. If your child's physical exam expires during the season, you will have two weeks from the anniversary date to have a new physical exam completed and submitted to the appropriate staff member.
The physical exam form can be found here and in the LINKS section of this form. Review it and the instructions very carefully as failure to complete the form in its entirety will cause a delay and an extra visit back to your physician.
