-Sports Physical Exam Information-The Falmouth Schools require a pre-participation physical evaluation of all students who plan to play a school-sponsored sport any time during their middle or high school years.  A copy of this exam must be on file at the school before a student can participate in school sports. The physical exam must be current within the 12 months of the date submitted to the school.

Only one physical exam is needed when entering middle school and again when entering high school unless the athlete sustains a major injury or a significant medical diagnosis.   Athletes sustaining a major injury or significant medical diagnosis would require a new physical exam for clearance to participate in sports.

High school practice for Fall sports usually begins the second week of August. Middle school sports begin after the start of the school year. Doctor’s appointments should be made early so that practice will not be delayed.

Please contact your school nurse with any questions.
