Winter Athletic Info
Penn-Trafford Athletics / 2018-2019 Athletic Packet & Winter Sports Registration is now OPEN
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.
Please complete all the information in the registration. If your student participated in a Fall Sport or participated in the June sports physicals, we have their Section 6 (CIPPE) on file, no need to send a copy. You will be contacted if your child needs a new Baseline Concussion Test due to injury.
Once your registration is completed, you will receive a confirmation email with all the information below.
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, 2018*** 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 email@example.com 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. If you student has a completed ImPACT test with their physician within the last 2 years, you may submit that as a 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.
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.
Please allow up to 48 hours for all registrations and 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 to the start of winter 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 completed or 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.

As you do your back to school shopping, please think of Penn-Trafford's Backpacks-to-Go Program. The Penn Trafford Backpacks-to-Go Program is a supplemental nutrition program provides a backpack filled with meals and snacks every other weekend to district children enrolled in the program, made possible through donations from community members, businesses, organizations, and churches in the surrounding area, and PT staff. If you would like to make a monetary, gift card, food or backpack donation, please contact Lauren Traill at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-744-2161 or Lisa Popovich at email@example.com or 724-744-0302. If you feel that your child could benefit from receiving a backpack during the 2018-19 school year, please contact Mrs. Traill or Mrs. Popovich.
