Typically, it is required by MHSAA that any student playing a sport have a current yearly physical on file before the first day of practice. This is for anyone playing in Junior High or High School sports (typically grades 7-12, but also grade 6 if they are on a Middle School team). Physicals are recommended for elementary but not required. MHSAA forms are available at the High School (or on line under the Athletic Forms page above) and need to be completed and signed on both sides. The MHSAA rule states that for an athletic physical to be honored for the 2020-2021 school year, it must be dated on or after April 15, 2020. For this year only, the Health Questionnaire is also an option depending upon your situation.
MHSAA 2020-21 Health Questionnaire
This is the new form that students who had a valid sports physical in 2019-20 (completed on or after April 15, 2019) can complete with required signatures to meet the pre-participation health status requirement in 2020-21. For more information on this process, you can access a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page for this new Health Questionnaire form by clicking the link above.
