To play on a team, or even practice, students must — by law — have a sports physical on file with the school nurse. The physical must be dated within the past calendar year of the current sport season.
The physical can be performed by a student’s family doctor, but New York State’s health physical form — which is also available from the school nurse — must be filled out.
Prior to each sports season, students also have the option of having a free sports physical performed by the school physician. Students will be given advanced notice throughout the year of the physical dates.
