Medical Guidelines for Sports Participation

All candidates for basketball, cross country, field hockey, ice hockey, golf, indoor track, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, outdoor track and field and volleyball.
  • Every student athlete is required to have a current physical on file in the Health Office prior to tryouts for any team. The physical must be completed on the State of Connecticut Department of Education Health Assessment Record. Please be certain the form is completed in its entirety and signed by a parent and the examining practitioner.
  • Physicals are valid for 13 months from the date of the exam. If the physical expires during the athlete’s season, a new physical is required prior to the expiration date to continue with either practice or participation in game or event.
  • No student may try out or practice until a health form is on file in the Health Office. Only the School Nurse can clear athletes for participation. No health form should be given to the athletic office or the coach.
  • Please mail only the State of Connecticut physical form directly to the School Nurse c/o Sacred Heart Academy by August 15, 2019. We recommend retaining a copy for your personal records and file. All other forms should be given directly to the coach of the appropriate team.
For Cheerleading

Tryouts will be held the last week of May. All physicals need to be received and cleared by the school nurse prior to tryouts.
