Due to the COVID-19 pandemic during the 2019-20 school year and the continued stress on the medical community, the Indiana High School Athletic Association, Inc. will waive the provisions of Rule 3-10 for the 2020-21 school year. Effective immediately, valid physical and consent forms presented to member schools on behalf of eligible students during the 2019-20 school year shall be valid during the upcoming 2020-21 school year.
These considerations have been vetted through the Committee on Sports Medicine of the Indiana State Medical Association and the Indiana High School Athletic Association, Inc. After careful consideration, these accommodations have been developed.
The FCHS and FCJH athletic departments will be working together to get all physical forms for the Class of 2024 (current 8th grade students) sent to FCHS by 6/1/20 in anticipation of summer workouts. Any athlete not having a valid IHSAA pre-participation examination physical form on file from the 2019-2020 scholastic year is required to have a valid Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form completed prior to eligibility and competition. This includes any student-athlete coming from an out-of State school to an IHSAA member school or any student who did not participate in sports during the 2019-2020 school year. The student must have a valid Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form completed on the official IHSAA form prior to eligibility.
If your child needs a valid Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form for 2020-2021, the most up to date forms can be found HERE.
