Union Catholic Athletics
The State of New Jersey has changed its requirements for athletic physicals and forms for all high school athletes.
As a service to our student/athletes and the parents/guardians, Union Catholic has arranged for physicals to be performed by our school physician Dr. Schaller. The physicals will be performed for a cost of $10 per physical. All payments must be in cash and they will be given on the following days.
Tuesday, July 15th from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the gym
Tuesday, August 12th from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the gym
Student/Athletes are required to make an appointment for a physical. You can do so by calling the athletic office at 908-889-1621. Be sure to leave your child’s name, grade, the date and time you will be at school and a number that you can be reached at.
Listed below are the new requirements:
*On the Clearance Form of the PPE, the last item provides a signature line for the healthcare provider to attest to completion of the Student-Athlete Cardiac Assessment Professional Development Module. The module is currently undergoing adaption to be presented as a professional continuing medical education (CME) activity and will be made available as soon as possible. After the Module is made available the examining physical, APN or PA will be required to access it electronically and complete it prior to performing the medical examination. Further, the physician, APN or PA will be able to download and print a certificate upon completion of the module. In accordance with the requirements included in the law, the physician, APN or PA is required to provide a copy of their certificate to each school for whose students they perform the medical examinations.
All required forms are available by going to the schools website (www.unioncatholic.org), select "Athletics" and then select "Athletic Forms"
