Health Forms and Orthopedic Information
PRIOR TO TRYING OUT FOR A TEAM
All Ursuline Student Athletes must have a valid physical form on file in order to be eligible to tryout for a team. Physicals are good for one year. Click here to obtain the form to be filled out by your physician.
Athletes must also complete an interval health history form at the start of each season. The form should be brought to the school nurse. Click here to obtain the form.
***Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact that it is having on our health care providers, The Department has released a memo to provide direction to schools when students are delayed in obtaining required health exams, along with information on the required health exam form. (attachments)
- Continue to accept any physical examination form conducted on or before January 30, 2021 and allow parents/guardians additional time to provide the completed exam form to the school;
- Student athletes can participate in the fall 2020 sports season without a current health exam if they meet certain criteria; and
- For the past two school years, the Department has encouraged schools to accept a health exam form regardless of the form it was completed on. Beginning January 31, 2021- physical examinations for school are to be documented on the NYS Required Health Examination Form (attached here)
