The Missouri State High School Athletic Association has changed the physical exam requirements for MSHSAA sponsored athletics. MSHSAA Bylaw 3.8.1 and 4.5.4 now allows a physical exam certified by a medical professional (MD/DO/ARNP/PA/Chiropractor) to be valid for a duration of two years (730 days) from date of issue (unless a physician specifically notes on the pre-participation exam that the physical is only valid for one year).
- Example: A physical that was received May 29, 2018 is now valid through May 28, 2020. A physical that was received on August 2, 2018 is now valid through August 1, 2020. Etc.
That being said, while the MSHSAA pre-participation physical exam form is now valid for a two year period from the date of the physical exam, all other pre-participation documents must still be completed/updated annually for every student athlete. Students will not be permitted to participate without these documents on file in the Activities Office.
