Student Physical Forms

The Georgia High School Association (GHSA) requires an annual physical for every student athlete. In addition, St. Pius X requires that every middle school student athlete who participates in the St. Pius X athletic program must also have an annual physical. Because GHSA mandates the physical form we use, it is beneficial that our physicals are done at the same time. The St. Pius X Athletic Association will sponsor physicals on Thursday, May 15, 2014 for a non-refundable fee of $30.00. The physical will cover student athletes for the entire 2014-2015 school year, as well as any sports team camps they attend this summer. Please note that physicals performed prior to April 1, 2014 are not valid for the school year 2014-2015.

All student athletes, both high school and middle school must have an up-to-date physical on file at St. Pius X before they can try out, practice or participate in any sport.

The physicals will begin at 3:15 p.m, and the last physical should be completed by 5:30 p.m.   For the exam, please have your student athlete dress in gym shorts and a t-shirt.

The physical form can be downloaded from the St. Pius X website (www.spx.org/athletics/Student Physical Forms). Or you may contact Dale Stanley in the Athletics Office at 404-636-7751, extension 266 or by email at dstanley@spx.org to obtain a form.

Please note the addition of the Student/Parent Concussion Awareness Form.  This form must be read and signed by both the student and the parent/guardian. 

The Medical History section of this form must be completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian. The St. Pius X Emergency Contact Information and Parental Consent section (found on the first page of the form) must also be completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian.

If your student athlete is having his or her physical done at St. Pius X on 05/15/14, please return completed forms to Dale Stanley in the Athletic Office by Tuesday, May 6, 2014.  Along with the forms, please enclose your check for $30.00 made payable to the St. Pius X Athletic Association.

If you decide to have your student athlete's physical done by your own doctor, you MUST take the St. Pius X Medical History and Physical Examination form to your doctor.  This is the only acceptable form.   For further information, please contact Dale Stanley in the Athletic Office at 404-636-7751 ext 266.

 

SMART HEART SCANS

Each year every St. Pius X student athlete is required to undergo a physical. The vast majority of the student/athletes take that physical here at St. Pius X in May. It is a very thorough physical. There are, however, certain heart conditions that cannot be detected in regular sports physicals. Over the past several years, there have been several deaths throughout the United States and here in the state of Georgia in athletics resulting from a heart condition that could only be detected by an Echocardiogram (Echo). An Echo is designed to screen for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a heart condition that reduces the heart's ability to pump blood effectively to the body. The Echo and its interpretation by a cardiologist routinely cost $800 to $1500, thus making the procedure cost prohibitive for many.

Smart Heart Scans for 2014 have not been scheduled.  Please check back later.
