OHSAA UPDATE: Fall Eligibility and Athletic Physicals

On May 29, 2020, OHSAA announced the following regarding Fall 2020 Academic Eligibility and Athletic Physicals will remain active for 13 months.  Here’s the OHSAA’s announcements on these two items:

Fall Scholarship Eligibility:  Due to the wide-range of academic grades being given for classwork during the final grading period, all students entering grades 7-12 will be eligible for 2020 fall sports insofar as academic eligibility is concerned.

PPE/Athletic Physicals: The following has been recommended by the OHSAA’s Joint Advisory Committee on Sports Medicine:

1. Continue with the requirement for an annual Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation (PPE) – every 13 months – for all 7-12 grade students.

2. Recommend strongly discouraging the use of mass physicals for this upcoming school year for the benefit of public health and to recommend all students receive a PPE in a private setting.

3. Strongly recommend that the physical exam be done at a medical home.

4.  Allow a student who has had a PPE within the last year to conduct his/her 2020-21 PPE in person or via telehealth as long as the usual forms are filled out, signed and in the provider’s hands prior to the visit.

Forms

All students who intend to try out for extra-curricular athletics must have a current OHSAA physical on file prior to trying out. Physical packets can be downloaded from this page or picked up in the AJH office.
