Here, you will find the required GHSA participation forms for your child to participate in athletics at Mount Vernon. Please note, a GHSA pre-participation evaluation physical is different from an “annual wellness” exam. This form is a functional assessment with vital information for the MV Sports Medicine staff members to be aware of regarding your child’s medical conditions and health regarding athletic participation.
This form (in its entirety), once completed, should be submitted directly to the MV Sports Medicine Department. Please do not submit these forms to a coach or athletic department. We can not accept photo submissions of these forms; only a hard copy or scanned copy may be submitted. Please reach out to the MV Sports Medicine Department at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding pre-participation evaluation physicals.
If you need assistance in getting your child in to see a sports medicine physician to obtain a new pre-participation evaluation physical, please schedule an appointment for your child and a member of the MV Sports Medicine Department will contact you.
Here, you can schedule a concussion evaluation with a member of our MV Sports Medicine staff. Please note, concussion may take up to 72 hours before they fully present; however, early recognition and diagnosis is key to implementing the proper recovery procedures. Here at Mount Vernon, we have established a Concussion Response Team (CRT) dedicated to managing your child’s concussion recovery from a Return-to-Learn (RTL) and Return-to-Play (RTP) stance.
