The statement below has been released by UIL Director, Suzan Elze, Ed. D. ...
"For the 2020-21 school year only, any participant in athletics or marching band, in any grade level, who has not previously completed a preparticipation physical examination (PPE), and been cleared for participation, will be required to complete the medical history form as noted in current rule, as well as a PPE prior to participation in any UIL practices, games, performances, or matches.
As required under current rule, all students participating in UIL marching band and/or UIL athletic activities will be required to complete the UIL Medical History Form. Any “yes” answer to any of questions 1-6 on the Medical History Form will require a student to receive further medical evaluation, which may include a physical exam, and receive written clearance from a physician, physician assistant, chiropractor, or nurse practitioner before any participation in UIL practices, games, performances, or matches. Only those students with “yes” answers to those questions are required to receive written clearance through further medical evaluation.
Please note that this is only for the 2020-21 school year, and local school district policies still apply. Schools may still require physical examinations of students before allowing participation in these activities, and such decisions are under the jurisdiction of each local school district."
