Sports Physical Information



The policy requires all athletes to have a current physical on file with the nurse prior to trying out for any team. 

Physicals are valid for 13 months from the date of the exam. If the physical will expire during the participant’s season, a new physical is required prior to the athlete trying out, practicing or playing in games. It is highly recommended to obtain the physical by your private physician. 

The blue State of Connecticut health assessment record includes a section for sports clearance. If the student goes to her private physician for a sport physical, this is the form to be used. Either form must be completed and on file in the Mercy High School Health Office prior to tryouts.

If you have any questions, please call Mrs. Sue Lupacchino, school nurse at 860-346-6659 or email

The sports pre-participation form (yellow) is for sports only and does not fulfill the requirements for a complete mandated physical as required in 9th grade to start 10th grade. 

In addition to having a current physical on file with the nurse, there are forms that must be completed online before any student-athlete is to try out for a sport. To access online forms, please click here.
