As of today, winter sports are anticipated to begin on November 20 or November 30. We ask that families be prepared for either date. To be eligible to try out for any sport, each student-athlete is required to have a PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation (CIPPE) form completed. The form must be dated June 1, 2020, or after.
Sections 1-6 and Section 10, must be completed by all athletes. No student-athlete is allowed to tryout for any sport until all appropriate sections have been completed. Please read below to see if you need to turn in Section 7 or Section 8. Please remember that all dates for tryouts are fluid, and we will continue to keep you updated in our weekly Friday email from Mr. Donaghy.
