UPDATED 7th - 12th Grade Bulldog Athlete Physicals

Updated: Jul 21, 2020

PLEASE NOTE: ALL ATHLETES MUST FILL OUT AND TURN IN A NEW HISTORY FORM; THE ONLY ATHLETES THAT NEED A PHYSICAL FORM ARE THOSE WHO DID NOT HAVE ONE LAST SCHOOL YEAR.


Dear Parents of Baltic 7th-12th Grade Athletes,


As allowed by the South Dakota High School Activities Association (SDHSAA) requirements for physical examinations for high school athletes, the Baltic School District has required all athletes to receive an annual physical examination. Recently, the SDHSAA released new guidance on athletic physicals for the 2020-21 school year in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, which states that the only athletes that need to get a physical for the 2020-21 school year are those who have never had a physical, and those whose last physical was prior to 2017-18, if that is what a school district decides.


At its May 11, 2020 meeting, the Baltic School Board voted to make a one-year exception to the Baltic School Distfict requirement of an annual physical for all 7th-12th grade athletes. As a result, the only athletes that will be required to get a physical for the 2020-21 school year are those who have never had an athletic physical and those whose last physical was prior to 2017-18. Of course, any parent who has concerns about the health of their student-athlete or who wants the assurance an annual physical provides is encouraged to have their student-athlete get a physical. Please note that this decision is in accordance with SDI-ISAA guidelines, and the Baltic School District will not be held liable if a student participating in athletics develops health issues that may have been discovered if they had taken an athletic physical prior to the 2020-21 school year.


Students who intend to participate must submit the following forms:

*Consent to Participate in Activities Form

*Consent for Medical Treatment Form

*Consent for Medical Release Form (HIPAA)

*Concussion Fact Sheet

*Interim Pre-Participation Health History Form (in years when no physical exam is taken)

*Heath History Form (in years when physical exam is taken)

*Physical Exam Form (in years when physical exam is taken)


Some of the forms may be submitted via on-line activity registration. Contact AD Cameron Kerkhove for more information or to obtain forms.
