WIAA Season Dates & Sports Physical Deadlines

Athletes wishing to participate in a WIAA-regulated sport at their high school must have an athletic permit card (a.k.a. “the green card”) on file at their school’s athletic office. This form must be signed by a doctor or nurse practitioner, as well as by the athlete’s parents. Students may not participate in official team activities, including tryouts until all required forms are turned in.

High school student-athletes need to have a "current" physical exam (scheduled April 1, 2020, or after) and a form (“green card”) signed by the examining physician by the following dates in order to participate in sports for the 2021-22 school year. It may take 3-5 business days to get a form signed and returned, so forms should be submitted no later than one week before the date for the sport.

 

Note: your school may have earlier deadlines; please check with your athletic office to confirm.
