Important Changes to IHSAA Physical Forms and HS/MS Preseason Participation

Beginning June 1, all FCS student athletes will need to complete the IHSAA PreParticipation Physical form and a new digital signature page for the concussion and sudden cardiac arrest information sheets prior to participation in ANY activity for your student athlete’s sport. This includes summer conditioning activities, lifting in the weight room, and any open gym/open field events. This change is being made to promote the health and safety of all student athletes at all times, including the off season. All physicals completed after April 1, 2016 will be valid for the entire 2016-17 school year. Physicals completed before April 1, 2016 ARE NOT VALID for the 2016-17 school year.

In addition, the IHSAA has updated the physical form and added specifications for physician signatures. All physician signatures on page 2 of the physical form must be handwritten (no stamped signatures) and include the physician’s license number. We encourage you to pick up the most up to date physical form from the Athletic Office prior to your physician visit or you can print one using this link . To help you with this process, FCHS is hosting our Annual Physical Night on Monday, April 25 from 5:30- 7:00 . The cost is only $20 and will cover you for the entire summer and 2016-17 school year. Johnson Memorial Hospital will be completing the medical evaluations and we will have computer stations for you to complete the digital signature pages. If you are unable to attend on April 25, a link to the digital forms will be sent out prior to the fall season.

 Other area schools have physical nights, though details (times, cost, etc.) may vary.
