OHSAA UPDATE: Fall Eligibility and Athletic Physicals
On May 29, 2020, OHSAA announced the following regarding 2020-2021 Athletic Physicals:
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.
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.
