Physical Exam Requirements for Sports Participation in Grades 6-12
To participate in any sport at any level, all students are required to have a physical exam, conducted by their health care provider (physician, physician's assistant, APRN or RN), on record in the Nurse's Office.
This physical exam is good for 13 months. Please remember, physicals for 6th and 10th grade students only, must be done on a State of Connecticut Blue Health Assessment Form. (This must be done on blue paper in order to be considered). The physical for 6th and 10th graders counts for a sports physical as well. They only need to turn in that one form to the nurses.
This physical must be on record PRIOR to try-outs: there are no exceptions.
If a student's exam expires in the middle of the particular season, he or she may begin the season but must have an updated physical by the expiration date.
Points to Remember:
Due to the large number of students who participate in sports, it is often difficult to get an appointment with your health care provider on a last minute basis. Parents whose children plan to participate in a sport are urged to make an appointment with their health care provider well in advance of the intended sports season.
The Nurse’s Office or Athletic Office will be glad to help you clarify any matter relating to sports physicals. Enfield High Nurse’s Office - 860-253-5544 / JFK Nurse's Office - 860-763-8887 (week before school begins) / Athletic Office – 860-253-6524}
