There is a critical change regarding to the physical evaluation form so please read the next paragraph carefully
Due to COVID-19, some families and athletes might not feel comfortable visiting their primary care provider to have the physical forms filled out and signed by a doctor. While AIA endorses that primary care, offices are taking necessary precautions to minimize you and your family’s risk of being exposed to COVID-19. We also want to respect the choices you make for your family’s health, while still honoring the AIA commitment to player health and safety. For these reasons, the AIA with support from the AIA sports medicine advisory committee is adopting the following guidelines for the 2020-2021 school year.
1. The 2019-2020 sports physical shall be accepted for the 2020-2021 school year if the following criteria are met over the time period since the athletes 2019-2020 sports physical.
a. Athlete has a 2019-2020 AIA sports physical on file with the school he/she is attending for 2020-2021.

c. Athlete did not have a concussion
d. Athlete did not receive a new medical diagnosis
e. Athlete has not had COVID -19
2. If any of the above criteria are not met, athletes must see his/her primary care provider and have an updated sports physical for 2020-2021.
3. If a child does not have a 2019-2020 sports physical form on file at PDSD then you need to complete a 2020-2021 sports physical.
