If your son or daughter will or might participate next year in education-based athletics at Jimtown High School, they must complete an IHSAA physical exam and have some other required forms completed and turned in before they can try out for a team. The IHSAA and certain state laws require that these be completed before the student can even practice with the team. Once this physical is complete, it will cover the entire 2019-2020 school year.
As in years past, Jimtown Athletics will provide an opportunity for you to complete this physical exam requirement before this school year is out at our IHSAA Physical Examination night. This year the physical examinations will be held on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at Jimtown High School from 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Sponsored by Beacon Health Systems and OSMC—area physicians and other health professionals will be on hand to provide completion of these required physicals at a minimal cost of $25.00. You can pay by cash or check. You would make checks out to “Jimtown Athletics” if paying by check.
In years past, this event was first-come, first-served. Many people had to wait in line for an hour or more. In order to make this process more efficient this year, we will again this year, use a sign up process by which folks can sign up to get their son or daughter’s physical and will only have to show up at the assigned time. It worked very well last year and people said the process was much quicker and they did not have to wait in line nearly as long. There will be a 15 minute time slot reserved at the end for “walk-ups”….those people who did not make an appointment, but still want to get their physical done on May 21st for $25.
To take advantage of this great opportunity, you will be required to do THREE things:
1. Sign up for an appointment in one of the 15 minute “slots” that we have set up for May 21st Click the following link, read the instructions and sign up for a time that is right for you. If you have more than one athlete coming in for a physical, make sure that you sign up for two or more slots as needed. When you provide an email address on the signup page, it will send you a reminder two days before the event.
Click this link to sign up for your time slot on May 21st:
2. Show up on May 21st at the correct time on your signup.
3. Complete and sign the parent and student portions of the Athletic Eligibility packet and bring it with you to the physical examination night on May 21st. This packet contains the IHSAA physical exam form and also some other concussion information and various consent and release forms.
