The State announced a new amendment to their PPE Bill pertaining to student-athletes. The new NJ State mandate requires parents to provide proof of their student-athlete’s upcoming physical. In order to comply with the newly amended NJ State Law, you must fill out our Date of Physical Examination Certification Form hereThe submission of this form will act as proof of the upcoming physical. The form must be submitted by  September 8th to ensure your student-athlete is eligible for the fall season.  The amendment states:

The committee amended the bill to require that a student-athlete who has not completed a physical examination within 365 days prior to the first day of official practice in the fall athletic season of the 2020-2021 school year would be permitted to participate in a school sponsored interscholastic or intramural athletic team or squad during that season, provided that the student-athlete completes the physical examination before the end of the athletic season, and further require that the student-athlete’s parent or guardian provide proof, before the first day of official practice of the athletic season, that the physical examination is scheduled.

If you have more than one child at the school, please submit the form for each student.

  1. Ensure the health and safety of all student-athletes.
  2. Re-engage all student-athletes as soon as possible for their social, emotional and mental well-being.
  3. Maximize participation across all sports and all student-athletes.
  4. Keep competition as local as possible for as long as possible.
  5. Develop multiple return to play models to minimize the risk of a cancelled season.
  6. Maintain the ability to pivot to back-up plans when deemed necessary.
  7. Minimize potential impact on the spring season.
  8. Minimize the importance of postseason, statewide championships.
