Athletics

New Jersey School Districts shall ensure students receive medical examinations from their primary physician within 365 days and the following must be completed prior to first practice session:

Universal Child Health Record Form (non-athletic)

Upon enrollment into school, the school district requires parents to provide examination documentation of each student within 30 days upon initial enrollment into a New Jersey school. Students transferring into a New Jersey school from out-of-State or out-of-country may be allowed a 30-day period in order to obtain entry examination documentation.

The state requires that notification be given to parents/guardians regarding the importance of obtaining subsequent medical examinations of the students at least one time during each developmental stage.

It is recommended that an exam be performed, at the minimum, during:

  • early childhood (preschool through grade three)
  • preadolescence (grades four through six)
  • adolescence (grades seven through twelve).

It is ideal that the physical examinations be conducted at the “medical home of the student” (child’s own physician).

A copy of these medical examinations may be submitted to the school nurse’s office, to update the student’s medical file.
