Instructions for Athletes

March 9, 2021.  The MA Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics has recently announced the following:

All youth who have had a positive COVID test should be cleared by their pediatric health care provider teams prior to returning to organized sports. Even
those who are asymptomatic could be at risk for cardiac issues related to COVID 19 infection.

Also, please remember that the MIAA requires all student athletes to provide up-dated physical exam records within every 13 months to maintain eligibility to play.  These need to have a health care provider signature and statement indicating that the student is cleared to play sports and be kept current for the entire season
