PIAA mandates physicals prior to participation in practices, scrimmages and competitions. This form must be completed by you and your personal physician, or at the school during one of the FREE PHYSICAL days in the fall and winter. Those needing a physical at any other time can go to Coordinated Health’s Care on Demand facility (CHCD). The cost of a physical is approximately $25. CHCD is located at 2300-2310 Highland Avenue, Bethlehem, PA 18020.
If your son or daughter will be participating in more than one sport, be sure to have your physician check all that apply. PIAA Student Athlete Forms may be picked up in the main office, downloaded using the link at the top of this page, or downloaded from the PIAA website.
Due to the enacting of new legislation on Sudden Cardiac Arrest by the Pennsylvania Legislature, the PIAA Physical Form was revised on July 26, 2012. In addition to Section 3: Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury, which was added earlier this year; the physical evaluation form now includes Section 4: Understanding of Sudden Cardiac Arrest Symptoms and Warning Signs.
All high school students participating in (or desiring to participate in) and their parent/guardians, must review, sign and return an acknowledgement of receipt and review of an Athlete/Parent/Guardian Sudden Cardiac Arrest Symptoms and Warning Signs Information Sheet and Acknowledgement of Receipt and Review Form.
Athletes who have already turned in completed physical forms prior to the addition of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest section, only need to complete Section 4 of the new form. When turning in Section 4, please note that you have already turned in a physical evaluation form. Athletes who received their physicals within the 13 day grace period, should complete Sections 3 and 4 of the new form and add it to their physical paperwork.
Those students who have completed and turned in physical forms prior to this addition only need to download and complete the new sections and return them to the school trainer or the Main Office. When doing so please note that this is an addition to your paperwork.
Athletic activity includes PIAA interscholastic athletics offered at BECA. Please note that a student athlete cannot begin fall practice on Monday, August 15th without this signed form turned in to the school trainer or to the Main Office.
Additional information on Sudden Cardiac Arrest can be found on the Pennsylvania State Department of Health’s website.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Joe Luther, the school trainer. He can be reached by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 610-866-0791 ext 27. Please leave a message if he is not in, and he will return it as soon as possible.
