SIGN-UPS HAVE BEGUN FOR THE 2023 SPRING SEASON!
Students are encouraged to begin registering for the 2023 spring season. PIAA Preparticipation forms (1st sport played at SV during the school year) and PIAA Recertification forms (2nd and third sports) are available on the website under the PHYSICAL section. If a spring sport is the first sport a student-athlete is playing during the 2022-2023 school year, he/she must return a white PIAA Preparticipation Physical Form. If a student-athlete played a fall or winter sport for the school, he/she must complete and return a blue PIAA Recertification form. In addition to being online, these forms are available in the high school office, middle school office and athletic office.
Deadline for HS spring paperwork is Friday, March 3 with the HS season starting on Monday, March 6. The deadline for JH winter paperwork is Friday, March 10 with the season starting on Monday, March 13.
Spring athletic physicals are scheduled for Tuesday, February 21 starting at 6:00 pm in the high school gym area. All student-athletes must turn in their PIAA Preparticipation Form by Monday February 20 to participate in the school athletic physicals. In addition, you should sign up for an appointment time using Sign-Up Genius Click to sign up –
If there are any issues with the Sign-up Genius appointment time, please contact the athletic office at 610-916-5490. For this year’s physicals, there will be no cost for participation. We want to make sure everyone can easily obtain a physical given the current financial climate.
If a spring sport is the first sport a student is participating in during the 2022-2023 school year, the student must attend this physical exam or have received a physical exam from a private physician after June 1, 2022 according to PIAA rules. Prior to attending the school-sponsored physical, a student should return a completed Preparticipation Physical Evaluation form signed by the parent/guardian and the student. High school students should return the form to the athletic office as soon as possible. Middle school students should return this form to the main office in the middle school as soon as possible.
Students who played a fall or winter sport do not need a second physical. To register for a spring sport, these students should complete and return a blue Recertification form (1 page) as soon as possible. Returning a Preparticipation Physical Evaluation form or a Recertification form will enable a student to be placed on a roster for the spring athletic season and will indicate to the coaches that the student should be contacted about open gyms and practices.
