Physical examinations are required for participation in interscholastics by the bylaws of the Arizona Interscholastics Association. Bylaw 15.7.1 states that:
A student shall not be allowed to practice or compete in interscholastic athletics until there is on file with the principal or his/her designee a record of a physical examination performed by a doctor of medicine (M.D.), osteopathic physician (D.O.) or certified registered nurse practitioner (N.P.) licensed to practice, or a certified physician's assistant (PA-C) registered by the Joint Board Of Medical Examiners and the Osteopathic Examiners in Medicine and Surgery. The physical examination for the following school year shall be given on or after March 1. The physical examination card on file shall be signed by one of the aforementioned medical providers and shall state that, in the opinion of the examining provider, the provider did not find any medical reason to disqualify the student from practice or competition in athletic contests. The principal or his/her designee, if deemed advisable, may require a student to be reexamined.
Member schools shall utilize the physical examination forms provided by the AIA. There shall be two parts: Annual Physical Examination form and Annual Preparticipation Physical Evaluation. (See the links at the top of this page to access these forms in MS Word or Adobe PDF.)
