MHSAA ADJUSTS REQUIREMENTS FOR ATHLETICS PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICALS FOR 2020-21

The Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) has adjusted its standard requirement for school athletics pre-participation physicals for 2020-21 in light of Covid-19. Rochester Community Schools (RCS) also has canceled the physical nights usually held in mid-June at the high schools.

RCS student-athletes who had a sports physical done for 2019-20 (dated on or after April 15, 2019) that is on file with their building athletic office do not need a new physical exam for 2020-21. Instead, they must complete the MHSAA’s Health Questionnaire form for 2020-21 (see button, above left) to become eligible to practice. Once RCS students submit the new Health Questionnaire to their coach at tryouts, or to their building athletic director or school office before tryouts, it will serve as their valid physical exam for the entire 2020-21 school year.

If students answer “yes” to any of the 14 questions listed on the Health Questionnaire, or if they don’t have a physical on file for 2019-20, they will need a new physical exam for 2020-21 and should use the Standard MHSAA Physical Form (see button, above right).

Physicals that were on file for eighth graders at the RCS middle schools will be forwarded to the athletic director at the corresponding high school. See below for more information about Frequently Asked Questions.
