Fall 2023 Sports Physical Dates + FAQs

Sports Physicals FAQs:

Is there a cost for sports physicals? No! PHSD offers FREE sports physicals on select dates before each sports season.

Who can get a sports physical? Only registered PHSD students in grades and charter school students in grades 7-12 who are in the student registration database (PH residency has been verified) are permitted to attend sports physicals. 

Where are the physicals held? At the Penn Hills High School and Linton Middle School Nurse's Offices. You will enter through the Main Entrance at both schools. 

Who is the doctor? All sports physicals are conducted by our school physician, Dr. Robert Crossey.

How long will the doctor be at the school on each physical date? The doctor will stay at least an hour but only as long as needed to see everyone who reports for physicals on that date. Please arrive by the end time listed on the physical date form to ensure you are seen by the doctor.

Can my student get a physical from their own doctor? Yes. Students and families may choose to get a physical from their own pediatrician/family doctor. The date on the physical must be after June 1, 2023 to be valid for the 2023-24 school year. We cannot accept physicals before this date. One physical is good for the whole school year. No need to get another physical before each season. Here is the form to have the doctor complete. You will upload a photo of this signed form under Section 6 in Planet HS/Student Central

Are sports physicals required to attend summer/offseason workouts? No, students are welcome to attend open gyms, workouts, and optional practices in the offseason before having a sports physical. Please share any health concerns with the coach(es) so they are aware. 

What is the deadline to get a sports physical? In order to start official practices or tryouts for your team (Varsity/JV Football and Golf starts Aug 7, 2023; All other Fall sports start August 14, 2023), you must have a doctor's physical AND all forms must be complete on Planet HS/Student Central.
