High School Physicals Screening

All student athletes participating in Idaho high school sponsored sports are required to have a sports physical prior to their freshman and junior years. Physicals help confirm the ability of each athlete to compete in sports and identify potential medical issues.


ALL SPORTS PHYSICALS MASS SCREENING EVENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED FOR 2020.

Athletic trainers recommend that students pursue a pre-participation sports exam with their family medicine or other qualified physician. A pre-participation exam does not replace the recommended annual physicals teens should have.

Idaho High School Athletics Association

It is required all students complete a history and physical examination prior to his/her first 9th and 11th grade practice in the interscholastic (9-12) athletic program in the State of Idaho. The exam is at the expense of the student and may not be taken prior to May 1 of the 8th and 10th grade years. This examination is to be done by a licensed physician, physician's assistant or nurse practitioner under optimal conditions. Interim history forms are required during the 10th and 12th grade years and must be submitted to the school administration prior to the first practice. 


Physical Examination Forms MUST be signed by a licensed physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner. High school sports physicals completed by pharmacies, chiropractor, or other non medically licensed professionals do not meet the IHSAA Standards, although they may meet the standards for club (non-high school sanctioned) sports.

Thanks to initiation by Ada County Medical Society through the Idaho Medical Association House of Delegates, in 2018 the Idaho State Legislature passed a law allowing for civil immunity for volunteer medical providers from while providing charitable care through a community screening program like high school physicals.
