Athletics Preliminaries & Physicals

Scroll down for standard health requirements — including documentation — for participation in all Wildctas athletics.

In the coming weeks, the school nurses will begin conducting “preliminaries” for Sports Physicals for the 2023-2024 school year for  students in grades 6 through 11 who wish to receive a sports physical conducted by the school physician.

If your child will be seeing their private physician to obtain a physical for the upcoming sports seasons and you do not wish to have one conducted by the school physician, no further action is required.

Preliminaries are performed by the school nurses and are completed before the formal physical examination. 

Preliminaries include the following:

  1. Completed Spring 2023 Medical History Questionnaire (MHQ) (completed by the parent/guardian)
  2. Blood pressure
  3. Pulse
  4. Height/Weight

The Spring 2023 Medical History Questionnaire can be found on Operoo:

  1. Log into Operoo by clicking the link here.
  2. Select “Form Library”
  3. Select “Spring 2023 Sports Physical Medical History Questionnaire”
  4. Complete the form by 3/1/2023 for your child(ren).

Please note that your child(ren) will ONLY be scheduled for a physical if the Medical History Questionnaire is completed by 3/1/2023.

The next step in the process is the Sports Physical. The exams will be completed in March, April, May, and June. Physicals are conducted in the nurse’s office by the school physician during the school day.
