Covid-19 Facts

   The virus that causes Covid-19 can affect people of all ages.  Research from the Centers for Disease Control, and among others, has found that while children do get infected by Covid-19, relatively few children with Covid-19 are hospitalized.  However, some severe outcomes have been reported in children, and a child with a mild or even asymptomatic case of Covid-19 can spread the infection to others who may be far more vulnerable.  While it is not possible to eliminate all risks of furthering the spread of Covid-19, the current science suggests there are many steps schools can take to reduce risks to athletes, coaches, staff and their families.

IHSAA Guidance Regarding Pre-Participation Physical Examinations and Consent Forms for the 2020-21 School Year Due to the COVID-19 pandemic                               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. Transfer students moving from one member school to another member school must provide a copy of their valid 2019-2020 Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form to the Receiving School in order to be eligible under Rule 3-8. Incoming students with a valid IHSAA Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form completed and signed after April 1, 2019 will also be eligible to compete during the 2020-2021 athletic season.
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.

If you choose to use a physical previously submitted for the 2019 school year, you will be required to sign a waiver stating that you knowingly and freely assume the risks and accept sole responsibility for the decision to allow my child to participate in IHSAA sports in the 2020-21 school year without an updated Pre-Participation Physical Examination and Consent Form. The waiver is located in Final Forms and must be signed.

An IHSAA Physical is REQUIRED to be on file with the PHMS Athletic Office prior to participation in ANY Athletic event.  This includes Conditioning, Open Field, Open Gym, Try-Outs and Practice.
