Important Information for 2019-2020 Athletes!
The CHS Athletic Department is sponsoring physicals for next year’s 7-12 grade students.
Physicals will be conducted from 6-8 p.m. in the CHS Athletic Department, 2125 S 11th Street in Chesterton on the following dates:
- Tuesday, May 28
CMS students, incoming freshmen and next year’s CHS 10th graders
- Wednesday, May 29
Next year’s CHS juniors and seniors.
If parents take their athlete to their physician or walk in clinic to get a physical, they MUST pick up these forms in the athletic office or download the new form from the CHS website before going. Students will not be allowed to practice over the summer months or on August 1st if they only have part of the physical form completed. The complete physical is four pages long NOT two. The signatures on page one and four are REQUIRED. Both the physical AND concussion/sudden cardiac arrest signature form must be returned in order to start conditioning!
Local physicians will be conducting a comprehensive physical exam including a musculoskeletal evaluation. Any physical given after April 1 will be acceptable for the 2019-20 school year according to IHSAA guidelines. In addition, ALL athletes must have a physical form as well as the concussion/sudden cardiac arrest paperwork on file in the athletic office prior to any summer workouts with their respective team. This includes attending summer camps with a CHS team! All incoming freshman are included in this requirement!
In addition to the four page physical form, the concussion/sudden cardiac arrest signature form must be signed by the athlete and a parent and returned with the physical. This is NEW as of July 1, 2015 and is a requirement! The school’s code of conduct form must be filled out and returned as well. In addition, each student or parent should follow the directions on the instruction sheet to register on our Athletic Trainer Electronic Record Keeping System. This will take no more than 10 minutes to complete on the ATS website.
Physical forms should be obtained at the CHS athletic office prior to these evenings but they will also be available at check in and on the CHS and CMS Athletic Department web pages. Any athlete under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult/guardian and all required portions of the physical form must be signed by both parents for it to be valid. Athletes are asked to wear shorts and a t-shirt for the musculoskeletal exam and should be wearing their contact lenses or glasses for the vision test. An athlete will not be cleared to participate unless he/she passes the vision test. Athletes should refrain from any high intensity workouts prior to coming to the physicals.
The cost is $25 per athlete but for those families with three or more athletes, the total cost will be capped at $75. Parents can write a check made out to CHS or pay with cash.
Please enter through Entrance 31 (northeast corner of building) and report to the cafeteria waiting area. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Athletes and parents will then be escorted to the physician exam rooms. No walk-ins will be accepted after 8 p.m. each evening.
Any further questions can be directed to Bernie Stento or Marnee Flinn-Smith, CHS certified athletic trainers, at 983-3759.
