Athletic Physicals

1. All students must register for sports each season using the Family ID online program (Search for LINWOOD -HERE).  This is not a physical but only the initial registration- all students must have a cleared sports physical- see #2.

 Print the Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation ( forms are found on Family ID, see above) and have it completed by your family physician prior to the due date.

3.  If you have a valid athletic physical on file with the school that will be less than 365 days old at the date of your sport's first try-out or practice, you will need to print, complete and submit the Seasonal Health History Form (linked HERE) to the school by the appropriate due date. This form is also required if the physical on file was completed more than 90 days prior to the first day of try-outs or practice for the intended sport.  If you have a physical on file that will be more than 1 year old at the start of your sport, you will need to see your physician for a new physical.

Athletic Physicals Information


Prior to participation on a school-sponsored interscholastic or intramural athletic team or squad, each student-athlete in grades six through 12 must present a completed pre-participation physical evaluation (PPE) form to the designated school staff member. Important information regarding the PPE is provided below, and you should feel free to share with your child’s medical home health care provider.

1. The PPE may ONLY be completed by a licensed physician, advanced practice nurse (APN) or physician assistant (PA) that has completed the Student-Athlete Cardiac Assessment professional development module. It is recommended that you verify that your medical provider has completed this module before scheduling an appointment for a PPE.

2. The required PPE must be conducted within 365 days prior to the first official practice in an athletic season. The PPE form is available in English and Spanish at

3. The parent/guardian must complete the History Form (page one), and insert the date of the required physical examination at the top of the page.

4. The parent/guardian must complete The Athlete with Special Needs: Supplemental History Form (page two), if applicable, for a student with a disability that limits major life activities, and insert the date of the required physical examination on the top of the page.

5. The licensed physician, APN or PA who performs the physical examination must complete the remaining two pages of the PPE, and insert the date of the examination on the Physical Examination Form (page three) and Clearance Form (page four).

6. The licensed physician, APN or PA, must also sign the certification statement on PPE attesting to the completion of the professional development module. Each board of education and charter school or nonpublic school governing authority must retain the original signed certification on the PPE form to attest to the qualification of the licensed physician, APN or PA to perform the PPE.

7. The school district must provide written notification to the parent/guardian, signed by the school physician, indicating approval of the student’s participation in a school-sponsored interscholastic or intramural athletic team or squad based upon review of the medical report, or must provide the reason(s) for the disapproval of the student’s participation.

8. For student-athletes that had a medical examination completed more than 90 days prior to the first official practice in an athletic season, the Health History Update Questionnaire (HHQ) form must be completed, and signed by the student’s parent/guardian. The HHQ must be reviewed by the school nurse and, if applicable, the school’s athletic trainer. The HHQ is available at

9. Once all forms are completed and ready to be submitted, please go to our Family ID page to register your child for their particular sport.
