As you know, we have incorporated FamilyID as a web-based collection of information. Parents and the students will again need to utilize their FamilyID accounts or if needed, create an account on FamilyID. Click Here:

When you do this, you will have an option of registering to come to the June 6th physicals at Penn-Trafford High School. This MUST be completed before June 4th if they plan on attending the physicals at the high school.

Times for the physicals:

• 8:00 am-8:45 am - 7th grade student athletes

• If you have students in multiple grades and want to have them attend together, please select a time and send them together.
If you are not taking advantage of the school athletic physical:

WHEN YOUR STUDENT PLANS TO SEE THEIR PERSONAL PHYSICIAN, YOU WILL NEED TO PRINT AND TAKE SECTION 6:PIAA FORM : ***Physical must be completed on or after June 1, 2019*** If your student is unable to see their Personal Physician, a CIPPE athletic physical can be obtained at MedExpress for $30.00. Please ensure that Mrs. Lisa Popovich, the High School Nurse, receives a copy of your completed SECTION 6: PIAA COMPREHENSIVE INITIAL PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION (CIPPE) AND CERTIFICATION OF AUTHORIZED MEDICAL EXAMINER. This can be done by emailing a scanned or clear photo of the completed Section 6 form to or dropping off the form at the high school office.

Baseline Concussion Tests must be completed with the PTHS Athletic Trainers prior to full clearance being received. If your student has a completed ImPACT test with their physician within the last 2 years, you may submit that asa baseline. If your student has already completed a Baseline Concussion Test, they do not need a new one unless they have had an injury (i.e. concussion) or are informed by the PTHS Medical Staff.

For Baseline Concussion Testing information after June 1st, please check the website for information.

During the school year, Baseline Concussion Tests can be obtained in the High School Athletic Training Room, Monday through Thursday from 2:30-4:00pm. If you are unable to attend during that time, please call 724-744-0580 to schedule with one of the Athletic Trainers.

During June and July, registrations will be approved weekly. In August, please allow up to 48 hours for all registrations and CIPPE forms to be cleared after they are submitted to the High School Nurse; final clearance will be given by HS medical staff. It is highly recommended that registrations are completed and CIPPE forms are turned in at least two weeks prior to the start of fall sports (August 12th). Registrations
and CIPPE forms submitted late will not be guaranteed the opportunity to participate on the first day of practice/tryouts. ALL registrations and/or CIPPE Sections 6 forms will NOT be cleared the same day they are submitted to the High School Nurse.

You can always check the status of your child's Athletic Participation Clearance Status by logging into your FamilyID Account and selecting "VIEW OR EDIT MY REGISTRATIONS" select the "SUMMARY" tab at the end of the current registration. You will see a blue section that says "MEMO FROM PENN-TRAFFORD ATHLETICS".The information in that section will tell you the status of their clearance for athletic participation.

Sports Info

Attention 7th or 8th graders interested in Cross Country:

Any student in 7th or 8th grade wishing to participate in Middle School Cross Country will need to have an active physical and concussion screening. Please check your Family ID account to make sure you are ready for the season. Students that are not cleared will not be eligible to practice with the team. The first official practice is Monday August 26th, at the Bushy Run location. Students will change BEFORE boarding the activity bus, as there are no locker rooms on site. Parent Pick-Up is promptly at 4:10. Remember to bring running shoes, dress appropriately for the conditions and bring your own water! Additional information can be found by accessing the REMIND App.
