Why do students need a sports physical?
IHSAA Rule 3-10 explains the requirement for annual physicals for all of those students who wish to participate in school sports. It states:
“Between April 1 and a student’s first Practice in preparation for inter-school athletic participation, the student shall have a physical examination by, or shall provide certification from, a physician holding an unlimited license to practice medicine, a nurse practitioner or a physician assistant, who shall clear the student for athletic participation using the current IHSAA Pre‐Participation Evaluation form,” which can be downloaded on the IHSAA Forms page.
