St. Luke’s University Health Network will perform physical exams on the Moravian Academy Upper School campus for PIAA athletics. Moravian Academy will offer ONLY one (1) physical for student-athletes encompassing grades 5 – 12 (current grades 4-11).
This physical is valid for all Moravian Academy Athletics offered for the entire school year. These physicals will be offered at Moravian Academy Upper School in the Athletic Wellness Center (AWC) on Thursday, June 7th.
If your son/daughter will be participating in ANY Moravian Academy sponsored athletic program at the Upper School and/or Middle School (Baseball, Basketball, Cross Country, Field Hockey, Football, Golf, Lacrosse, Soccer, Tennis, Track & Field, Softball, and/or Swimming and Diving, Volleyball, Wrestling) during the 2018-19 school year, we encourage you to have your child attend this physical. Here is the schedule for the physicals:
• 5:00 PM – 5:40 PM: Cross Country, Boys’ Soccer, and Girls’ Soccer
• 5:40 PM – 6:20 PM: Field Hockey, Golf, and Girls’ Tennis
• 6:20 PM- 7:00 PM: Football, Volleyball, and other sports that do not take place in the fall (Swimming, Basketball, Wrestling, Track and Field, Boys’ Tennis, Lacrosse, Softball, Baseball)
Prior to the examination, parents need to complete sections 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation (CIPPE) Form. As in the past, you may have your own physician give your son/daughter a physical using the CIPPE form. The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) has approved this method and requires athletes to complete the CIPPE form and submit them to Moravian Academy Athletic Trainers office before participation in any athletic program. Please make note that this physical must be performed after June 1st, 2018.
All of the Moravian Academy Athletics documents can be found on our school website or copies may be obtained in the Athletic Training room of the upper school or through the Athletic Coordinator of the middle school. If either document is not received with the appropriate signatures, your son/daughter will not be eligible to participate in Moravian Academy Athletics.
