Interscholastic Athletic Competition

All students who participate as cheerleaders, song leaders, or athletes in interscholastic sports are required to file a current medical examination. The annual examination is current July 1-June 30 of each school year. The annual examination will be on the CIF recommended Participation Physical Evaluation form. Compliance with the medical examination requirement is not necessary for participants in a play day or a field day activity occurring occasionally during a school year in which students of one or more particular grade levels from two or more schools in the district participate in athletic contests.

If a student sustains an injury or serious illness, the student may be required by school personnel to have another examination prior to further interscholastic competition.

A student who has been excused from the physical education program because of a medical reason may not participate in any interscholastic athletic competition.

All students engaging in interscholastic athletic competition are required to meet accident insurance requirements prescribed by law.
