1.     AFTER JUNE 1, 2021:  PIAA CIPPE Sections 1-6 These online forms are mandatory.  Once you complete Sections 1-6, you will be prompted to print out SECTION 7 - Take the section 7 form (Physical Form) to your doctor to complete, date, and sign.  Your son should then hand the signed Section 7 Physical Form to our Athletic Trainer, Mr. Jeff Jacoby, to approve.  Parents may also scan and email Section 7 to Jeff as well.  Students without the properly completed PIAA CIPPE forms will not be eligible to participate in a sport at Holy Ghost Prep.
