    SPORTS PHYSICALS:

    Please see Nurse’s Corner for all sports physical information.

    Remember ALL STUDENTS should report to the nurse’s office to see what forms they need in order to try-out and/or participate in a sport. 

    Even if the student has a physical on file and/or participated in the season prior, they still need paperwork from the nurse’s office in order to try out/participate

    Message on Athletic Participation/Eligibility  

    Students should be aware that there is a statewide and district requirement that, in order for a student "...to be eligible for athletic competition during the first semester (September 1 to January 31) of the 10th grade or higher..., a pupil must have passed 25% of the credits required by the State of New Jersey for graduation (27 1/2 academic credits) during the immediate preceding academic year." 

    In order for a student "...to be eligible for athletic competition which begins during the second semester (February 1 to June 30) during the 9th grade or higher..., a pupil must have passed the equivalent of 12 1/2% of the credits (or 13 3/4 academic credits) required by the State of New Jersey for graduation (i.e. the student must have passing grades in at least 5 1/2 courses) at the close of the preceding semester (January 31)."

    A student turning age 19 prior to September 1 of any year is ineligible for athletic competition from September 1 of that year until he/she graduates (NJSIAA regulation).
