WPIAL Sports Physicals

Each year there are many questions and frustrations with the timing of sports physicals.

The PIAA reviews and revises their policies regularly. Sewickley Valley Pediatrics adheres to these specific policies.  The current PIAA policy states “INITIAL EVALUATION: Prior to any student participating in Practices, Inter-School Practices, Scrimmages, and/or Contests,
at any PIAA member school in any school year, the student is required to (1) complete a Comprehensive Initial PreParticipation
Physical Evaluation (CIPPE); and (2) have the appropriate person(s) complete the first six Sections of the
CIPPE Form. Upon completion of Sections 1 and 2 by the parent/guardian; Sections 3, 4, and 5 by the student and
parent/guardian; and Section 6 by an Authorized Medical Examiner (AME), those Sections must be turned in to the
Principal, or the Principal’s designee, of the student’s school for retention by the school. The CIPPE may not be authorized
earlier than June 1st and shall be effective, regardless of when performed during a school year, until the latter of the next
May 31st or the conclusion of the spring sports season.
SUBSEQUENT SPORT(S) IN THE SAME SCHOOL YEAR: Following completion of a CIPPE, the same student seeking to
participate in Practices, Inter-School Practices, Scrimmages, and/or Contests in subsequent sport(s) in the same school
year, must complete Section 7 of this form and must turn in that Section to the Principal, or Principal’s designee, of his or
her school. The Principal, or the Principal’s designee, will then determine whether Section 8 need be completed.”

ALL PAGES OF THE PHYSICAL FORM MUST BE SUBMITTED TO OUR OFFICE for review and form completion per our SVPAM physicians.  If you do not submit all pages, we will be unable to accept the form and will ask you to resubmit as required.

SVPAM Physicians may require a follow-up visit for your child prior to a subsequent sports season if your child has experienced an injury, has a chronic illness, and/or has had a recent illness. These follow-up appointments are in the best interest of your child to make sure they are healthy and it is safe for them to participate in an athletic program.
