Students must complete and submit the following forms prior to participating in practices or tryouts. Check with your school for the procedure of turning in completed forms.
- Pre-participation Physical Evaluation Form (MCPS Form SR-8) – The Pre-participation Physical Evaluation Form is valid for one year (for high school athletes) and two years (for middle school athletes) from the date of the exam, and covers participation for all sports within that time period.
