The Nebraska Schools Activities Association has changed requirements for Pre-Participation Physical Examinations for the 20-21 academic year. Due to the overwhelming demand on the healthcare system in Nebraska, it was clear to the NSAA Sports Advisory Committee that the system as a whole would not have the capacity to meet original requirements in place by the NSAA for all athletes to have physicals administered in the normal time allotment.
As a result, all physicals for students entering grades 8, 10, 11 & 12 that were accepted during the 19-20 academic year, will remain valid for the 20-21 academic year. This is a one year exemption only and those students who are entering 7th and 9th grades will still be required to get a physical prior to their first athletic practice. Those physicals must be administered no earlier than May 1, 2020!
