Bombers News · 2020-21 Sports Physical Rule Change


Due to the extenuating circumstances of Covid-19 and anticipated, as well as current, burden being placed on the medical 
community, the IHSAA has decided to extend the expiration of the current 2019-20 Pre-Participation Physical thru the 
end of 2020-21 school year.  If a student had a physical on file during the 2019-20 school year it is now valid until 
the end of the 2020-21 school year.  These considerations have been vetted through the Committee on Sports Medicine of the 
Indiana State Medical Association and the IHSAA.  After careful consideration, these accommodations have been developed.
This extends to HS and MS students, however, this does not waive the need for a pre-participation physical for those that 
did not have one on file during the 2019-20 school year.  Also, 5th graders moving into 6th grade will all need to have 
a physical on file to participate.  The status of your 2019-20 physical will soon be changed in final forms to reflect 
this accordingly.
