• **  ATHLETIC PHYSICALS  **

     

    All students wishing to participate in athletics at Memorial Junior School are required to obtain a physical by their healthcare provider. The physical examination must take place within 365 days of the first practice.


    Step 1: Obtain a physical
     
    A current/valid physical is one that has been performed by a healthcare provider and has been cleared by the school physician before a student can participate/tryout. The History Form and Physical Examination Form must be completed by a health care provider and do not need to be submitted to the nurse's office. Both forms should be kept by the healthcare provider who completes them. ONLY THE COMPLETED MEDICAL ELIGIBILITY FORM SHOULD BE SUBMITTED TO THE SCHOOL. The school physician will review the Medical Eligibility Form upon receipt. The school district will then provide the parent with written notification signed by the school physician stating that participation in school athletics is approved or not approved.

    New forms can be found in the links below:

     
    It is recommended that your own physician conduct the medical examination.  If you do not have a primary care/pediatrician or cannot be seen by your primary care physician, you may contact our school doctor, Dr. Michael Kelly, DO at 973-736-1939 to make an appointment at his office for the physical.
     

     
    Step 2: Register for Sports
     
    Parent/Guardian and student-athlete must complete the Arbiter Sports (formerly known as FamilyID) registration process. (Registration for fall sports will begin on 7/22/2024)
     
    See instructions on how to register for arbiter sports (family ID) below.
      

    If your student-athlete has Asthma he/she will not be eligible to participate in sports until a signed Asthma Treatment Plan has been received from your private physician.  If your student-athlete has been symptom free for an extended period of time and does not require the use of an inhaler, a physician statement indicating that an inhaler is no longer necessary must be submitted.

    If your student-athlete has a life-threatening allergy that requires an Epi-Pen he/she will not be eligible to participate in sports until the signed administration of epinephrine forms is received from your private physician.
