Current Physical Evaluation
Each participate must have a certificate of an annual physical evaluation on file at the school prior to participating in athletic tryouts, practices, or games that indicates the student is physically approved for participation.
Physical exams will be good for twelve months from the date of the exam. EXCEPTION: Any physical examination taken after April 1 in the preceding year will be accepted for the following (GHSA) school year.
The physical exam must be conducted by a licensed medical physician, or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, or a physician's assistant.
The exam must be signed by the doctor, but the doctor's stamp is acceptable if it is in script, and information appears elsewhere on the form identifying him or her as a medical doctor.
It is required that all students use the physical examination form approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics that is found in the GHSA Forms Notebook. The form must have "Revised 7/1/2005 Mandatory" in the upper left corner of the History page.
2. Grade Eligibility -

Each participant must pass four (4) out of five (5) subjects the semester previous to the proposed semester of participation for the 2013-2014 calendar year. Each subject must be passed with a minimum grade of 70.
Transfer students from out of the county may not have more than one (1) failing grade and be eligible to participate.
The connections grades of the previous semester will be averaged as one of the subjects. Each school is to send an eligibility form to the Commissioner prior to the first contest for a sport.
3. Proof of Insurance -

All athletes must have insurance to participate. Insurance information must be included with their paperwork. Coweta County Middle Schools will not endorse any insurance.
Should an athlete's family not have coverage, they should be encouraged to purchase their own or purchase the insurance provided through the school. The "school-type insurance" will cover athletic participation.
If Medicaid is listed as the insurance, the athlete's Medicaid number should be on his or her paperwork.
It will be the parent's responsibility to maintain current insurance information at the school.
