Pre-Participation Physical Exam - Carolina Day School
It is department policy that any child in grades 6-12 that wishes to participate in the CDS athletic program must have a yearly pre-participation physical on file in the athletic department. Students will not be allowed to participate in any CDS practice/match/game without this document on file. You may download a copy of the form from this page. This form must be filled out by a physician.
Gfeller-Waller Concussion Awareness Act
To increase and ensure the safety of our student-athletes, we have implemented a concussion management protocol following the Gfeller-Waller Concussion Awareness Act. There are three major areas of focus in the law, and these include education, emergency action and post-concussion protocol implementation; and clearance/return to play or practice following a concussion. Student-athletes in grades 6-12 will take a neurocognitive computer test through ImPACT; this will serve as a baseline should your athlete sustain a concussion. All student-athletes and their parents must review this Concussion Information Sheet and sign and return page 2 to the athletic department. Download this document from this page.
