Due to the COVID-19 pandemic during the 2019-20 school year and the continued stress on the medical community, the Indiana High School Athletic Association, Inc. will waive the provisions of Rule 3-10 for the 2020-21 school year.
Effective immediately, valid physical and consent forms presented to member schools on behalf of eligible students during the 2019-20 school year shall be valid during the upcoming 2020-21 school year.
Transfer students moving from one member school to another member school must provide a copy of their valid 2019-2020 Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form to the Receiving School in order to be eligible under Rule 3-8.
Incoming ninth grade students with a valid IHSAA Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form completed and signed after April 1, 2019 will also be eligible to compete during the 2020-2021 athletic season. Any athlete not having a valid IHSAA pre-participation examination physical form on file from the 2019-2020 scholastic year is required to have a valid Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form completed prior to eligibility and competition.
This includes any student-athlete coming from an out-of State school to an IHSAA member school or any student who did not participate in sports during the 2019-2020 school year. The student must have a valid Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form completed on the official IHSAA form prior to eligibility.
Finally, if available and desired by the student, parent or member school, a new Pre-Participation Physical and Consent Form on the most current IHSAA document dated after April 1, 2020 is most acceptable and welcomed.
