Student Athlete Physical Information
In accordance with New York State Education law, any student participating on an organized athletic team must have an annual physical to participate. Physicals are good for a period of one year from the date of the physical, to the end of that month (i.e physical done 3/15/2018 is valid until 3/31/2019 with a completed update form). If the physical is more than 30 days prior to the start of the season, a health update must be completed by the parent/guardian (the update must be dated within 30 days of the start of the season). Students must have a physical and/or update in order to participate.
Although the Salamanca City Central School District is committed to the belief that all children need an annual exam by their own physician, the district offers sport physicals by the district physicians.
The following options are available if your son or daughter wants to participate on an athletic team:
1. Obtain a physical at the school - (dates will be in late May and early June 2020).
Physicals are offered by the Athletic Department in late May and early June. The purpose of having physicals at the end of the school year is to ensure all athletes physicals are up to date an valid for the entire school year.
2. Your child may get a sport physical by their private physician. The physical MUST be completed on the Health Appraisal Physical Form If the physical is dated more than 30 days prior to the start of the season a Health Update Form must also be completed. Forms are available at the school nurse's office, Athletic office. Health Appraisal form can be downloaded from the website.
If you choose to have the physical done by your private physician, the completed physical form MUST be delivered prior to the start of practice to the school nurse.
