New Physical Form and Procedure
The IHSAA has just updated their Athletic Physical Form for the 16-17 school year. The new form looks very similar to the previous form but they have made some small changes throughout the document. This new form will be REQUIRED for all athletes that plan to participate in any athletic program at MHS and also at Paul Hadley.
The one main point of emphasis with this new form and procedure is that the physical must actually be signed by an MD or DO in order for the physical to be valid. In the past, it was acceptable to have a stamped signature on the form from a doctor. However, this will no longer be the case and will not be allowed. The doctor must also write his/her license number after their signature. This change could potentially

Just a reminder that MHS and PHMS will have a new policy starting this summer with participation in summer and preseason workouts. Starting this summer, ALL athletes that will be practicing or participating in the summer or any preseason workout must have a new completed athletic physical on file in the Athletic Office. Physicals that are dated after April 1st will be valid for the 2016-17 school year. In addition, the online signature page through Rank One Sports will need to be completed before workouts begin. That system will be rolled over in mid-May after updates to the Athletic Handbook have been approved.
We do have a PHYSICAL NIGHT scheduled for Monday, May 16th starting at 6:00pm. This will be held at MHS and anyone in attendance should enter Door 4. The physicals that night will be provided by Franciscan St. Francis Health. The cost of the physicals will be $20 and checks can be made payable to MHS. In addition, Martinsville High School will be providing physicals on Saturday, May 21st from 9-12. The cost will also be $20 and the physicals will also be done by Franciscan St. Francis.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Athletic Office.
Go Pioneers! #BeEpic!
