2020-2021 Athletics Pre-Participation and Physical Information

Dear Parents/Guardians,

My name is Nate Roberts and I am the Assistant Athletic Director and Athletic Trainer at Pen Argyl. We are asking that you and your son/daughter login to our data entry system (sportsware online) to complete all of the pre participation requirements. You can follow the attached instructions for logging into sportsware for new athletes. If you have already established your account, you can login at using the username and password that you created. All information must be completed online or turned in by August 3rd, 2020 for High School Football and August 10th for all other high school and middle school sports. All of the forms can be found by accessing your Sportsware account under the forms tab or on the main athlete’s portal screen. The required forms have been made electronically fill-able for your convenience. You may still print and complete hard copies if you wish, but you can save paper by submitting electronically through your sportsware account. Be sure to double check that you are submitting fully complete documents, once you click the submit button you cannot make any changes. Also, please remember to complete or update your My Info tab as well as the Med History tab in the sportsware account, and update any changes in emergency contacts or insurance that you may have had since your last log in.

Signature Sheet:  This form states that you agree with all of the policies set in place by Pen Argyl Area School District and that you and your son/daughter will adhere to them. Please do not forget to sign the athletic accident insurance area at the bottom of the page. This is only to notify you that we do have athletic accident insurance in place, should your son/daughter sustain an acute injury as a result of participation in their school related sport.

PIAA CIPPE:  This form is mandatory by the PIAA for participation in athletics. Sections 1-6 are mandatory for any athlete who has not yet participated in a school sport this year. Section 6 needs to be filled out by a physician and authorized after June 1, 2020. Section 7 is not required in the fall, it is for recertification to play another sport this school year, and will be made available in a fillable document this year. It will be posted at the appropriate times during the winter and spring. Section 8 is also not required for the fall, it is needed for anyone that sustained a significant injury/Illness requiring medical attention since the physical date that did not turn in a clearance note. I can provide a copy of this upon request, but it will be made available in sportsware in a print only format. Section 9 will be required for wrestlers only, and will be completed for each wrestler by the sports medicine staff.

*Only PIAA forms can be accepted to satisfy the physical requirement* please login to your sportsware account to access all of the forms.

**IMPORTANT**Anyone who meets the requirements for free or reduced lunch can find more information about obtaining a physical by contacting me via the email below.


**IMPORTANT** The St. Luke’s University Health Network physical night will be determined at a later date. With the COVID-19 pandemic we are not able to schedule this at this time. You will be notified if and when we are able to host this event, and the schedule that we will be using.


**Baseline concussion testing, using the ImPACT software, is mandatory for any 7th, 9th, and 11th grade student, as well as anyone playing a school sport for the first time this season. Testing dates and times will be announced through school and our coaches at open workouts. Testing must be completed in order to be eligible to participate.
