Re: IHSAA Pre-Participation Physical Examination and Consent Form Guidance for 2020-21 School Year
Good Morning. I hope this communication finds you well and safe during these unprecedented times. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic during the 2019-20 school year and the continued stress on the medical community, the Indiana High School Athletic Association, Inc. will waive the provisions of Rule 3-10 for the 2020-21 school year. Effective immediately, valid physical and consent forms presented to member schools on behalf of eligible students during the 2019-20 school year shall be valid during the upcoming 2020-21 school year.
These considerations have been vetted through the Committee on Sports Medicine of the Indiana State Medical Association and the Indiana High School Athletic Association, Inc. After careful consideration, these accommodations have been developed.
Please see the attached document for detailed information regarding this guidance. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at your convenience.
