Physical Examinations and Parent Permission
JCPS requires all student athletes participating in middle and high school events to have a completed and up-to-date sports physical. The Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) includes both Middle School (MS01) and High School (GE04) physical forms. You can also go to the KHSAA website and search forms. Parents also must complete the Parent Concussion Signature Sheet.
Student Accident Insurance Program
Effective 2021-2022, student accident insurance will be provided free of charge to all student athletes. This is a secondary insurance policy if the student has additional insurance.
What to Do If Your Child Is Transferring Schools (high school only) in Terms of Athletic Participation
The KHSAA has policies regarding transferring high schools and participating in athletics. The KHSAA Transfer Policy explains what exceptions have to be met for a student to play once he or she changes schools. This policy applies only to students who have played in a varsity contest (even for just one play).
Heat Policy for Practices and Games
All JCPS teams follow the same KHSAA heat play guidelines when it comes to playing or practicing in extreme heat and humidity. The KHSAA Heat Index Chart makes it easy for coaches to see what they can and cannot do in terms of heat play.
