Any student athlete from St. Georges Tech must use this new physical form:
The regulation regarding physicals for the 2020-21 school year are located in 3.0 of the document link that follows: https://www.doe.k12.de.us/cms/lib/DE01922744/Centricity/Domain/609/1010%20Interscholastic%20Athletics%20during%20the%20COVID-19%20Pandemic.pdf
In short, a returning student who had a physical completed for the 2019-20 school year on the appropriate DIAA form can still be cleared until the end of the fall season using the same physical on file in the nurses office. Any student interested in trying out for a winter or spring sport must have a new physical done prior to the start of those seasons. All returning students must still complete and submit the new physical form pages 2, 3, and 5 from the link provide above.
Any 9th grader must have a new physical completed on the new form on or after April 1, 2020. If they had a physical done on the previous DIAA form on or after April 1, 2020, they must complete and submit the new physical form pages 2, 3, and 5 from the link provide above in addition to the physical exam form signed by the physician.
RECOMMENDED: Although not mandated for returning students who are compliant with the new regulations, it is highly recommended that students obtain a new physical with their primary care physician as soon as possible due to the potential delays in future scheduling. Most offices are open and accepting physical appointments. The second best approach is to schedule with our Wellness Center once it is open. It is not recommended to obtain physicals at walk in clinics unless absolutely necessary.
