2018-2019 Athletic Packet, Physical & Fall Sports Registration
The Penn-Trafford School District offers physicals for its student athletes for a $10.00 fee (Cash or PayPal – No checks). This year, we will again offer this service but some of the procedures are slightly different.
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. When they do this, they will have an option of registering to come to the June 7, 2018 physical at Penn-Trafford High School. This should be completed before June 4, 2018 if they plan on attending the physicals at the school.
Times for the physicals remains the same as in previous years:
8:00 am-8:45 am - 7th grade student athletes
8:45 am-9:30 am - 8th grade student athletes
9:30 am-10:15 am - 9th grade student athletes
10:15 am-11:00 am - 10th grade student athletes
11:00 am-11:30 am - 11th grade student athletes
11:30 am-12:00 pm - 12th grade student athletes
Doors will close at noon; no athletes will be admitted after this time.
6th grade students planning to try out for Middle School Cheerleading in May 2019 may attend the 8:00 - 8:45am time slot.
If you have students in multiple grades and want to have them attend together, please select a time and send them together.
IF YOUR STUDENT PLANS TO SEE THEIR PERSONAL PHYSICIAN, 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 AND CERTIFICATION OF AUTHORIZED MEDICAL EXAMINER (Physical must be completed on or after June 1, 2018). This can be done by emailing a scanned or clear photo of the completed Section 6 form or dropping of the form at the high school office.
Baseline Concussion Tests must be completed with the PTHS Athletic Trainers prior to full clearance being received.
***Please allow up to 48 hours for the 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 forms be turned in at least two weeks prior for the fall sports. Those forms turned in late will not be guaranteed the opportunity to participate on the first day of practice/tryouts. ALL registrations including, CIPPE Sections 6 will NOT be cleared the same day they are turned into 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.
