2017 SPORT PHYSICALS AT PVHS
The 2017 sport physical date has been confirmed and will take place on May 17, 2017 in the media center with the support of Southeast Orthopedic Specialist staff. The cost is $20 which goes to PVHS to cover athletic training supplies. All students must complete the entire physical packet and report at the designated times after school if they wish to take part in the physicals. Flyers will be posted around school so students can verify physical dates and times. Additionally, like in past years, “Who We Play For” will be available to conduct optional heart screenings. Information can be found in the “Who We Play For FAQ” and the registration form is required prior to screening. For more information on physical day or cardiac screening, please contact our ATC, Cody Pontius.
Student participation in multiple sports is highly encouraged by Ponte Vedra High School and our school district. Participation in two sports in the same season is not permissible, but participation in fall, winter, and spring seasons is available to all athletes. In the event of an overlap due to transition from one season to another, the athlete must finish out the previous season. Coaches will make every effort to assist the students who wish to tryout for an upcoming sport with scheduling the two days allowed. This policy is to minimize the impact on the current sport while still allowing the student to tryout for the upcoming sport.
CERTIFIED ATHLETIC TRAINER
The ATC is available to students to assist them in preparing for competition and practice. The ATC hours for evaluation and rehabilititation are during all three lunch periods M, Tu, Th, & F from 12:00pm to 2:00pm, and W from 11:25am to 1:19pm. The ATC is also available after school for game and practice preparation.
Since class participation is a significant key to student success, students are NOT ALLOWED to miss class to see the trainer.
