IMPORTANT INFORMATION BELOW. PLEASE READ 

The PIAA physical form, that must be filled out completely, can be found on Governor Mifflin’s website under the ATHLETICS tab.  THIS FORM HAS BEEN UPDATED. OLD FORMS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.  Please make sure that all information is COMPLETELY filled out, except for the final page which will be filled out by the physician.  LINK TO PIAA FORM HERE.

During physicals, no one will be permitted to enter the gymnasium except the athlete receiving his/her physical.  NO ACCEPTIONS.  We must keep the gym as quiet as possible for the physicians to perform the physicals successfully.

If your son/daughter played a 2017-2018 fall or winter SCHOOL sport and gave us their physical, you and your athlete simply need to fill out the pre-participation physical RECERTIFICATION form and hand that in to either the athletic office or the athletic training room.  Your athlete does not need to have a new physical performed.  Please read over the recert form carefully and follow proper instructions.  LINK TO RECERTIFICATION FORM HERE.

 MEDICAL DEFICIENCY FORMS:  If your athlete fails his/her physical, they will be sent home with a medical deficiency form that explains why they failed and what must be done for them to be cleared to participate in their sport.  For example, an athlete may fail their physical due to a heart murmur found by the physician.  The form sent home with the athlete must be signed by the appropriate physician who will clear the athlete after further examination is performed!!  The athlete will not be cleared until this is complete. 

If you arrive after the last time scheduled, you will NOT be permitted inside the gym.  NO ACCEPTIONS. DO NOT BE LATE.     

This is the ONLY spring physical that we will hold for athletes.  If you cannot make this physical and your athlete still needs one completed, I would suggest calling your athlete’s family physician as soon as possible.  Another option is going to Patient First in Wyomissing.  Your athlete can go without an appointment and the physician there will perform a physical for your athlete. Make sure you bring the physical form so the doctor can fill out and sign the final page.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during our physicals.  If there are any questions/concerns, please feel free to email me.

Sincerely, 

Tara Ludwig LAT, ATC
