Athletic Forms and Physical Information

All participants in Cannon Athletics must fill out 3 forms:

  1. Physical Form
  2. Concussion Awareness Form
  3. Spirit of Athletic Competition Form
These are due on the first day of practice for that season. The physical must be valid through each season of participation. Physicals are typically valid for one year from the time of the physical.  In order to be covered for the entire year, the best time to have a physical done is the summer.  

You can have a physical performed at your family doctor or our medical athletic trainer provider, Novant Health, provides free physicals on the morning of June 2, 2018. The screening is for rising 7th -12th grade athletes.

The link to register for the 2018 Novant Health Competitive Edge Sports Screening is www.ppezoom.com. Please note that parents must pre-register their child to attend; day-of registration are not allowed. Registration closes on May 27. Choose CANNON from the choices of school.

Best regards for a great summer and we’ll see you in the fall! Go Cougars!!!
