PIAA Physical Information

Attention Daniel Boone Athletes
 
Beginning this year we are teaming up with Tower Health Medical Group as our new sports medicine provider. They will be performing our sports physicals on August 2, 2018, at 5:00 pm in the high school gym. There are a couple of important changes you must be made aware of.
 
First, we will now be offering pre-season sports physicals three times during the school year, prior to the start of each sports season. The physicals offered on August 2, 2018, are for Fall athletes only. Winter and Spring athletes should wait until the physicals for their respective seasons.
 
Secondly, the Tower Health Medical Group needs to have sections 1-5 completed and turned into the athletic office by July 20th so their doctors can review your child’s health history prior to the actual physical. **There will be no walk-ins permitted on the day of physicals.
 

As usual, all physical paperwork can be found on the school’s website under Activities. All information must be on the PIAA paperwork and must be signed by both the parent/guardian and student.

A couple of important notes, particularly if you are having your physical done by your primary care provider or an Urgent Care facility:

  • Sports physicals for High School and Middle School students for the 2018-2019 school year must be dated after June 1, 2018. Physicals dated prior to that date cannot be accepted.
  • All physicals must be on the PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical evaluation form found on the Daniel Boone website, or in the Athletic Office. We cannot accept paperwork from a wellness visit, driver’s license physical, etc.
  • The physician must sign and date Section 6. Parent/guardian must fill out Sections 1-5. The paperwork requires signatures from both the parent/guardian and athlete.

Please return the completed physical paperwork to the Athletic Department by August 6, 2018. Practices for fall sports will begin on August 13, 2018. You cannot participate until your physical has been turned in and processed.
