Dear Prospective Cannon Athletes and Families,

Students who want to participate in Cannon Athletics at the middle school or high school level must have updated physical, concussion, spirit of participation, and consent to treat forms filled out by parents, athletes, and doctors. Those forms can be found at the web links provided on this page. These forms are good for the entire year and all three seasons of athletics. Our recommendation from Cannon Athletics is to get these forms filled out in June or July of 2020 for participation in the academic year 2020-2021. Many families like to use their family doctors and that, of course, is fine. However, many health plans prevent a physical from being updated until a twelve-month period has elapsed since the most recent physical. For some athletes, this date occurs in the middle of the season, thus rendering the athlete ineligible for the time period between the date that the physical expires and the opportunity to get another physical. This is an unpleasant situation for the athlete, the family, and the team. Our suggestion is to get the physical from your doctor in the summer.

Thank you for your cooperation in handling your athlete's eligibility well in advance, and we look forward to seeing you on the fields, courts, tracks, and courses soon.
