If your child is entering grades 7-12 and is interested in playing interscholastic or club sports for the North Hills School District in 2020-21, PLEASE READ!
Again during the 2020-2021 school year (starting June 1, 2020), North Hills will continue to use an outside provider called Healthy Roster to electronically collect all PIAA, AHN and North Hills School District paperwork as it relates to participation in extracurricular athletic activities in interscholastic and club sports for grades 7-12 only.
- PIAA CIPPE – Sections 1 and 2
- PIAA CIPPE – Sections 3 and 4
- PIAA CIPPE – Section 5
- PIAA CIPPE – Section 6 (Print this form and take it with you to the doctor’s office)
- PIAA CIPPE – Section 7 (if necessary)
- AHN Sports Medicine HIPPA
- AHN Sports Medicine Consent to Treat
- North Hills School District Acknowledgement of Information and Release Form
Please note that the nurse’s physical paperwork is NOT the same as PIAA CIPPE Section 6 and will not be accepted for interscholastic and club sports participation.
All information will be filled out online using the electronic forms found in the documents section on your Healthy Roster account.
There are two exceptions:
- You will need to take Section 6 of the PIAA CIPPE with you to have the doctor sign off on your child’s sports physical. Afterward, log into your Healthy Roster account to either scan or take a picture of the document and upload to the PIAA CIPPE – Section 6 form in the documents section
- You only need to fill out PIAA CIPPE – Section 7 electronically if your child is participating in more than one sport in an athletic year. This form cannot be filled out any earlier then 6 weeks prior to the start of the sports season
If you have already have a Healthy Roster account, you will be eligible to start filling out these documents on June 1, 2020.
If you do not have a Healthy Roster account or your child will be participating in athletics for the first time, visit this link and fill out the form.
Once you complete and submit the form, you will receive an invitation from Healthy Roster within 3-5 business days to set up your account. Please note, once you receive the invite, you have 24 hours to set up your account before the passcode expires.
After you have set up your account, you will be able to fill out all required forms listed above.
You will also need to choose all of the sport(s) roster within the North Hills School District that your son/daughter is interested in.
For help completing these documents, visit the training section of the Healthy Roster website.
