AthleteS

  • All athletes MUST have a current medical (on Special Olympics PA medical form) that runs through the end of the season. If an athlete’s medical is not up-to-date, the athlete WILL NOT be able to participate. Unfortunately, there are no exceptions to this rule since it poses a safety risk to the entire program. 
  • An up-to-date medical must always be on file with the coach as well as sent to the program manager for filing.
  • Medicals expire every 3 years however it is recommended that all athletes have a physical and update their medical form annually. Also please note that the medical form MUST be signed by an appropriate licensed professional
