Important Physical Information for All Sports:
The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) has issued guidelines for athletic physicals. Eastern York School District follows the PIAA guidelines. Eastern athletes must complete the PIAA's Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participational Physical Evaluation form known as the CIPPE form. Below is the guidelines that need to be followed.
INITIAL EVALUATION: Prior to any student participating in Practices, Inter-School Practices, Scrimmages, and/or Contests, at any PIAA member school in any school year, the student is required to (1) complete a Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation (CIPPE); and (2) have the appropriate person(s) complete the first four Sections of the CIPPE Form. Upon completion of Sections 1, 2, and 3 by the parent/guardian, and Section 4 by an Authorized Medical Examiner (AME), those Sections must be turned in to the Principal, or the Principal's designee, of the student's school for retention by the school. The CIPPE may not be performed earlier than June 1st and shall be effective, regardless of when performed during a school year, until the next May 31st.
SUBSEQUENT SPORT(S) IN THE SAME SCHOOL YEAR: Following completion of a CIPPE, the same student seeking to participate in Practices, Inter-School Practices, Scrimmages, and/or Contests in subsequent sport(s) in the same school year, must complete Section 5 of this form and must turn in that Section to the Principal, or Principal's designee, of his or her school. The Principal, or the principal's designee, will then determine whether Section 6 need be completed.
The new PIAA forms as of August 1, 2012 are located here (New physical - Sections 1-6, Recertifications Sec. 7, Doctor Release for injury Sec. 8, and Section 9 wrestling only.)
