OCTOBER, 2019 SMS/SHS WINTER Athletic Physicals @ SHS

Any student entering 6th - 12th grade in 2019-2020, and who intends to play a winter sport, serve as a winter team manager, or be in twirling must have an athletic physical before official practice begins. If you have played a fall sport, or were a team manager, and have an athletic physical on file, you do not need another physical, but you do need a recertification form. All physical paperwork or recertification forms are available in the athletic office, or on the district website.

Please note that these physicals are to play sports at SMS or SHS, not SYA.

Per PIAA rules, any physical for SMS/SHS athletics must be dated on or after June 1, 2019.

An athletic physical is available to your student athlete or team manager on Wednesday, October 30,  at the Salisbury HIGH School Health Room. This is the only date that we will be doing physicals for the Fall athletic season.

There is a fee of $10.00. Cash or checks payable to STSD will be accepted. The schedule is below.

Please enter SHS at the old gym (Door 2).


  • 5:00 pm


  • 5:45 pm

Please show up 15 minutes before your scheduled time so that we can make sure all paperwork has been completed properly. Please wear athletic clothing and contacts or glasses if you have them!!

A physical cannot be given without the consent of a parent or guardian, regardless of student age. Please sign the parental consent section so that your child may receive a physical on October 30.

If your child receives an athletic physical from your family physician or another approved medical provider, the PIAA physical form must be used and the Salisbury packet must be completed. Reminder, the physical form must be dated on or after June 1, 2019.

The physician must review, sign and date the PIAA comprehensive physical evaluation.

All required parent/guardian signatures still apply.

Reminder, all physical packets must have parent/guardian signatures in order for the student to receive a physical.
