If you have a child planning to play middle school or high school sports, you should be aware that some of the PIAA rules have changed. All forms for the 2013-2014 must be signed/dated after June 1st. The PIAA now allows physicians to either perform an exam on student athletes prior to form completion or sign the form based on a complete review of the medical record and an exam within acceptable guidelines. So what does this mean for you?
If upon review of your child’s chart and your completed form we have any questions about clearing your child for athletic participation, we are obligated to evaluate them in the office prior to signing the form.
