Panthers News · Sports Physicals Come To YOU!


Panther Nation,

We are happy to extend this offer out to all of our athletes. On Wednesday, July 29th from 10am -12pm we will be offering sports physicals here at the school. The charge will be $15 . The physical is good all school year long. Fall, Winter, Spring. Come one come all!

We want to ensure all of our families are aware of the updated mandatory athletic participation guidelines for the 2020-2021 school year as  released by the IHSAA.

In response to lifestyle changes and current uncertainty caused by COVID-19, the IHSAA  released the below outlined guidelines for their 2020-2021 pre-participation physicals. Please read below for more details, but in short, student-athletes may use their completed physical from the 2019-2020 school year.

Although IHSAA has waved the requirement of a new physical for the 2020-2021 school year, we STRONGLY encourage getting a new physical for your child’s safety and well-being

1) Returning high school and middle school student-athletes:

  • You will not need to complete a new physical if one had been turned in to the Athletic Department during the 2019-2020 school year.
  • You will need to complete the IHSAA-Health-History-Update-Questionnaire-and-Consent-Release. 
  • Effective the 2020-2021 school year, all Griffith Public Schools student-athletes will need to register on Final Forms as part of their mandatory pre-participation requirements.
  • Information on FinalForms can be found on our website under the MORE tab or by visiting the link at the bottom of the page.

2) Incoming 8th graders:

  • You may use the completed physical form from middle school, if it was on file with the Athletic Department, but will also need to complete the IHSAA-Health-History-Update-Questionnaire-and-Consent-Release. 
  • Effective the 2020-2021 school year, all Griffith Public Schools student-athletes will need to register on Final Forms as part of their mandatory pre-participation requirements.
  • If you did not have a physical on file with the Athletic Department, you will still be required to register with FinalForms, and may turn in a hard copy of the physical form to the Athletic Department when social distancing guidelines permit.

3) New students, Transfer student or students without a valid 2019 physical:

  • Must complete the entire attached physical packet, along with registering for FinalForms for the 2020-2021 school year.
  • In addition you must you will need to complete the IHSAA-Health-History-Update-Questionnaire-and-Consent-Release. 
  • Once FinalForms and a physical have been completed, a hard copy of the physical form will need to be submitted to the Athletic Department when social distancing guidelines permit and the FinalForms profile will be updated on each student-athlete’s profile with the expiration date reflecting eligibility throughout the 2020-2021 school year.
