Sports Physical Form
Physical forms can be found in your school's activities office. Completed physicals must be uploaded into rSchools.
These are sports physicals and do NOT take the place of a comprehensive physical. No immunizations will be given.
Beginning July 1, 2019, sports physicals and concussion forms will need to be uploaded into a website called rSchools rather than being turned into the activities office.
The forms must be filled out and uploaded before a student can participate in athletics.
To access the rSchools website where forms need to be uploaded, click here.
Before you begin the registration process, you will need to have electronic copies of your student's completed physical form. If you do not have access to a scanner, you may bring your forms into the activities office and a scanner will be made available to you so you or your student may email the forms to yourself. The activities office does not have the capability of uploading forms into rSchools for you.
Once you are on the rSchools website, follow these instructions.
You may contact Sarah Murphy at (515)963-4335 with questions.
Iowa Concussion Legislation
Effective July 1, 2011, Iowa law requires that students in grades 7 – 12 who participate in extracurricular interscholastic activities, cheerleading and dance must provide an electronic signature stating that both parent and student have read the concussion fact sheet.
Students cannot practice or compete in those activities until you have electronically signed in your rSchools account verifying that you and your student have read information regarding concussions.
In addition, please note this important information from Iowa Code Section 280.13C, Brain Injury Policies:
- A child must be immediately removed from participation (practice or competition) if his/her coach or a contest official observes signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion or brain injury in an extracurricular interscholastic activity.
- A child may not participate again until a licensed health care provider trained in the evaluation and management of concussions and other brain injuries has evaluated him/her and the student has received written clearance from that person to return to participation.
- Key definitions:
- “Licensed health care provider” means a physician, physician assistant, chiropractor, advanced registered nurse practitioner, nurse, physical therapist, or athletic trainer licensed by a board.
- “Extracurricular interscholastic activity” means any extracurricular interscholastic activity, contest, or practice, including sports, dance, or cheerleading
Sports Physicals Offered Locally
Students participating in sport competitions are required to have a physical examination so the student may safely engage in athletic competition. An Iowa Athletic Pre-Participation Physical Examination Form must be completed and uploaded in rSchools before a student can participate in athletics.
