Sports Physicals

Information for 2021-2022 Athletics

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Please note the following changes:

  • The PIAA (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletics Association Inc.) requires ONE COMPREHENSIVE PHYSICAL EXAM BY AN AUTHORIZED MEDICAL EXAMINER (MD, DO,PAC, CRNP OR SNP), thereby eliminating the seasonal physical requirement.  This physical must be dated June 1, 2021 or after and will expire June 1, 2022.

This positive change assures a more thorough examination that can be fulfilled through the individual’s annual medical exam by his/her family physician.  Please note that ALL information for the comprehensive physical must be completed by the parent, student, and physician and Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 returned to the school district. Please be sure to sign for ALL sports in which your son/daughter MAY compete during the 2021-2022 school season.

PIAA Comprehensive Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation

Due to changes in this comprehensive physical form provided by the PIAA, athletes are responsible for obtaining their sports physical on their own.  South Fayette School District will not be providing sports physicals.  We encourage you to schedule a physical with your child’s primary care physician, who is most familiar with your child’s health history and immunization records.  Please note that physicals are mandatory for eligibility for all sports.

All student-athletes (grades 7-12) that participate in a school sponsored sport must register through the online platform Planet HS.  The instructions are below.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the South Fayette High School Athletic Office by phone at 412-221-4542 x 240 or by e-mail at [email protected] or [email protected]..
