Warriors News · Winter Sports Registration is NOW OPEN!

Penn-Trafford Athletics / 2020-21 WINTER Sports & Athletic Physical Registration is OPEN


At this time we will be offering Athletic Physicals for WINTER Athletes ONLY at the High School on Tuesday, October 27th beginning at 4:00pm. If you sign up for the physicals, you will be contacted with an arrival time. Physical times will be spaced out accordingly. The cost is $15 this year.

(PayPal required during registration – due to COVID – NO CASH or CHECKS at school physical check-in). Spring Athletes will be offered at a later date.



IF YOUR STUDENT PLANS TO SEE THEIR PERSONAL PHYSICIAN, YOU WILL NEED TO PRINT AND TAKE SECTION 6:PIAA FORM  : ***Physical must be completed on or after June 1, 2020***   If your student is unable to see their Personal Physician, a CIPPE athletic physical can be obtained by an Excela Health Primary Care Office (1-800-332-4825 to make an appointment) for $25.00 or at MedExpress.


Please ensure that Mrs. Lisa Popovich, the High School Nurse, receives a copy of your completed SECTION 6: PIAA COMPREHENSIVE INITIAL PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION (CIPPE) AND CERTIFICATION OF AUTHORIZED MEDICAL EXAMINER. This can be done by emailing a scanned or clear photo of the completed Section 6 form to popovichl@penntrafford.org, faxing to 724-259-6476 or dropping off the form at the high school office.


If your PCP requires you to provide them with a completed Section 5: Health History & Section 6: PIAA Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation, please print the form from the link. We no longer use this form as it is incorporated into our FamilyID registration.


Baseline Concussion Tests will be available during our WINTER physicals if you have not already had one completed at your PCP’s office.


Baseline Concussion Tests must be completed with the PTHS Athletic Trainers prior to full clearance being received. If your student has a completed ImPACT test with their physician within the last 2 years, you may submit that as a baseline. If your student has already completed a Baseline Concussion Test, they do not need a new one unless they have had an injury (i.e. concussion) or are informed by the PTHS Medical Staff.


If in need of a Baseline Concussion test after the WINTER physical date, please email smithj@penntrafford.org to secure your date and time, we ask that YOU DO NOT JUST SHOW UP!


You can always check the status of your child’s Athletic Participation Clearance Status by logging into your FamilyID Account and selecting “VIEW OR EDIT MY REGISTRATIONS” select the “SUMMARY” tab at the end of the current registration.

You will see a blue section that says “MEMO FROM PENN-TRAFFORD ATHLETICS”.

The information in that section will tell you the status of their clearance for athletic participation.
