MSHSAA Information Regarding Sports Physicals

Incoming 7th graders and anyone that did not get a physical last school year will need to get a physical before participating in a MSHSAA sport/activity for the 2019-2020 school year. If a student has a physical on file, a parent/guardian will still need to complete the parental consent form, which is located below in a link.

Questions about if a physical will be valid for the 2019-2020 school year? Read below.


WHAT DEEMS A PHYSICAL TO BE VALID?: A PPE (physical form) that releases a student to participate in sports/activities will now be considered valid for two years (730 days). We cannot control when every student’s physician will want to see them again for a general physical, which will be between the student’s physician and their parent; however, in order to be permitted to play sports for a school team, the new MSHSAA bylaw allows a physical to be valid for a two year period (730 days). A current physical that a student may have on file with the school may be valid for next school year under the new bylaw.

Example: A physical that was received on August 2, 2018 is now valid through August 1, 2020.

Example: A physical that was received May 29, 2018 is now valid through May 28, 2020.

Example: A physical that was received February 2, 2018 is now valid through February 1, 2020.

NOTE: In the event that a student has endured a medical condition resulting in a significant change with their medical history the school is advised to request a new PPE (physical form), or at a minimum, if/when the school knows that a student has experienced a medical condition or an injury, the school shall secure a written medical release from a physician for the student to be released to return to or to continue participation. It is recommended that the written medical release from the student’s attending physician be retained on file with the student’s most recent physical form. Only the MSHSAA PPE Form, the “physical examination”, is valid for a two year period (730 days). The MSHSAA Preparticipation Documentation such as Medical History, Parent Permission-Insurance Verification, Student Agreement, Concussion Education Materials-Parent/Student Signature, Emergency Contact Information are still annual requirements that the school must secure from the students/parents annually
