Physicals Required for Junior High Sports
Now that our sixth graders have gone through the process of selecting classes for seventh grade, it’s a good time to let parents know about the physical exam requirement for any students interested in participating in interscholastic (after school) sports in junior high school.
District 54 requires that any student playing interscholastic sports have a current physical on file. The physical exam is valid for one year from the date of the physical.
Athletes cannot try out or practice with a team until a current physical is on file.
Since sports physicals are valid for one year from the date of the physical, parents of students who are interested in participating in any junior high sport are urged to schedule a physical during the summer months. This will allow the student to participate in any sport throughout the year. These summer appointments fill up quickly so allow enough time.
If you have questions, feel free to contact the junior high school where your child will be attending.
