Frequently Asked Questions

  • When does my physical have to be returned to my coach?

    Posted by:
    During the summer students must submit their physical as soon as they have a new exam. No athlete is to participate in summer workouts without a valid physical. Physicals should be handed in once completed, to ensure the school physician can approve it prior to the start of your season. Athletic participation registration is now required on the Family ID website. Physicals will be required to be in paper format. When a physical is after the registration deadline students must complete Family ID registration by deadlines posted.

  • Does my physician have to complete both pages three and four of the PPE?

    Posted by:

    Yes as per the department of education, the physician or qualified health care provider must complete and sign both pages of the physical portion of the PPE. The physician must sign page four twice. Once with the date of the exam and once that the physician completed the cardiac module with the date it was completed, not the date of the physical exam. Page four must be stamped by the office.

  • Do I have to do the ImPACT test?

    Posted by:
    Yes, baseline ImPACT testing is a requirement of athletic participation. All incoming freshmen participating in athletics and or cheerleading must complete the ImPACT test. Generally, students take the baseline during their freshmen year and retest during their junior year. This not always the case. If it has been two years since your baseline you need to test. If you are a "new" student, transfer or have not played a sport at HS South you need to test.
