Sports Physical Information
Physical Examinations for Interscholastic Sports and Cheerleading
A student participating in sports and cheerleading must obtain a PIAA required sports physical by his/her health care providers at his/her expense.
To participate in sports or cheerleading, a Penns Valley student must:
Receive one sports physical per year (June 1 to May 31). PIAA Physicals must be given June 1st or later. PIAA forms, sections 1 - 6 must be completed at the time the physical is given. Athletes must also have a completed concussion form and signed code of conduct signature page in order to participate (the code of conduct sheet must only be filled out once a school year, not every season). To find all the required paperwork click on the link below
Prior to the beginning of winter and spring sports, a parent must complete and return to the school a Section 7 Re-Certification by Parent/Guardian form. Changes in a student’s health since the initial physical exam must be noted by a parent. A student MAY have to provide a Section 8 PIAA Comprehensive Pre-Participation Physical Re-Evaluation by Medical Examiner form completed by his/her physician if a student had to be treated for an illness or injury during the school year. If treatment was given, ask the doctor to complete the Re-Evaluation form at the exit visit. Taking that step in advance will in all likelihood save time and expense.
Section 9 Minimum Wrestling Weight form must be completed for wrestlers.
PIAA sports forms and instructions on completing them are available in the main office of PVHS and on the District website and PIAA website. The concussion form and code of conduct form are only available through this link.
New for this year is a release form for Geisinger. This gives permission for your student athlete to receive athletic training services from our trainer, and for the trainer to communicate with school personnel. Like the code of conduct, this document only needs to be signed once per school year. The WINTER SPORTS MEETING WILL BE HELD ON ZOOM on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 7:00 PM. At that meeting the links for the wrestling, basketball, swimming and cheering meetings will be posted. Those meetings will follow at 7:30.
