In our effort to use a paperless system, our district will continue to utilize ArbiterSports for submission of physicals for all Athletes, Incoming freshmen and all Transfer students. All families recently received an email with information to set up/update your ArbiterSports account. 

  • If you already registered in ArbiterSports in the past, please click the link above and log in to your account and complete the FALL registration for the sport you will be participating in and upload a current physical.
  • If you already uploaded and submitted a valid physical within your account, then there is no need to upload that physical again. However, you do need to register for your FALL sport in Arbiter Sports/FamilyID.
  • If you do not have a FamilyID account, please follow the link and create an account and upload a current physical.
  • If you are not participating in a FALL sport but you are an Incoming 9th Grader or Transfer student or just updating your physical for approval, there is an option for "Not participating in FALL Athletics".

PreParticipation Evaluation Forms (Physical Form)
This physical is valid for one full year.

Please utilize the New Preparticipation Physical Forms for 2024.
These will remain on file with the physician who performs the exam.  The only form required for submission into the ArbiterSports registration is the Medical Eligibility Form

  • PreParticipation Physical Evaluation Forms are to be completed, signed, stamped and dated by the examining physician.
  • The physician MUST sign off that he/she completed the cardiac assessment module.
  • This 4 page packet includes:
    • History Form
    • The Athlete with Special Needs
    • Physical Form
    • Medical Eligibility Form (only form required to be uploaded into Arbiter Registration)
  • Physical Exams are valid for ONE YEAR ONLY.  You may not participate with expired physical. If your insurance will not allow a physical by the due date, please contact me. 
  •  Please be sure the physician signs, stamps and includes date of physical, and checks off clearance status.

*Your physician must sign the portion of the Medical Eligibility Form that states he/she has completed the cardiac module. The Medical Eligibility Form can not be accepted if your physician has not signed this or if he has not completed this module. **Please check this prior to your appointment.

IMPORTANT INFO!!

Only our school physician has the authority to review and medically clear athletes to participate in sports. What this means is that if you do not have your COMPLETED paperwork submitted by Deadlines above  you run the real risk of not being able to participate in tryouts on the first day of the season.  Please see the athletic web page for first day of practice schedule.  

The school doctor will be reviewing each and every individual student's paperwork who intends on participating in a  SPRING Sport. You will not be able to submit your paperwork via Arbiter Sports/Family ID and practice that same afternoon. It could be a week or more before you are cleared, depending on when the school doctor is scheduled to review these documents.

** PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL OR FAX FORMS** 
All forms must be submitted via ARBITER Sports/Family ID 
Thank you!
