Cougars News · IMPORTANT REMINDER: Sports Physicals for 2021-2022



Saint Joseph Sports Medicine (SJSM) has informed the New Prairie United School Corporation that they will no longer be providing school-based pre-participation examinations (Sports Physicals Night).

SJSM believes it is in the best interest for the health and well-well being of our student-athletes to establish a “medical home” with a primary care provider who will be able to provide an annual history and physical examination that can also satisfy IHSAA Sports Physicals requirements.

The IHSAA allows pre-participation exams to be signed after April 1st for the subsequent academic year.  I.e. April 1, 2021 satisfies IHSAA exam requirement through June 2022.  In order to be valid for IHSAA athletics, the physical must be completed on the IHSAA Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation form which is available below.


For those families who do not have a current primary care provider and/or are looking to schedule an appointment, SJSM has provided a directory of their facilities:

A reminder that a valid physical must be completely filled out on the current IHSAA form and signed after 4/1/2021. The completed IHSAA form must be on file in the athletic office prior to participating in any workouts / practices after July 1st 2021.
