A great way to get reminders and updates on what is happening from the Bermudian Sports Medicine program is to follow us on twitter @bermsportsmed
As we look toward the 2016-2017 spring sports seasons, there is information necessary for every student athlete involved in participating for Bermudian Springs.
-The PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation (CIPPE) is the only form accepted for participation in the Bermudian Springs athletic program. So if you plan to see your primary care physician, please take the form with you for the necessary signatures and date. Please use the form that has 2016-17 on the top. These forms can be found in the athletic physicals section.
-Athletic physicals may not be performed prior to June 1, 2016 to be valid for the 2016-2017 school year.
-For those athletes with a valid physical on record in the Athletic office, a blue re-certification form needs to be completed. This form needs to have the student's name, date of birth, age, grade and winter sport completed. The supplemental health history section must also be completed and signed by both the student and parent. You need to only complete the personal information and emergency information if there are changes from your original CIPPE form. These forms are due to Mrs. Kim Fry by January 31, 2017 so that they can be reviewed for our school physician. Only if the student has a change in the supplemental health history will he/she need to see our school physician on February 7, 2017.
-There are many signatures that are needed for the forms to be considered complete. Please make sure that all signatures are completed for both parents and student athletes.
-Physicians must sign, date and check the necessary box for clearance for the physical to be valid.
-Insurance company and policy, group or ID information is needed on the form to be considered complete. If you need to purchase school insurance, it can be purchased from the administration office.
-All athletes will need to have a valid ImPACT baseline score on record. This needs to be updated every other year and will take place during practices.
