Physical and Medical Waivers
Each student must have a completed Athletics Department Authorization and Release Form and an Athletics Department Health History/Physical Examination Form (link to form here). The family doctor or Select Physical Therapy must fill these out before students participate in athletic activities. All participants must have an up to date physical on file in the office in order to practice and play. Physicals are good for up to 13 months with noting that a physical should be updated within the 12 month period and using the 13th month as a buffer period to have an appointment with a physician.
Any team member who requires a visit to the Emergency Room or to a physician for an injury may not participate or practice until the physician provides a written medical release.
Sport Safety/Concussion Management – IMPACT
GRACE has acquired a concussion management system called IMPACT, which is an accurate, medically-accepted assessment system that is used as part of an overall concussion management protocol. GRACE partners with Select Physical Therapy to provide Athletic Training Services for all of our athletic teams who also implements and manages the IMPACT testing and database.
