FAQ

What if my physical expires during the season? Will I need a new one?
Yes. As of 2016, Massachusetts State Law requires all student-athletes to have an updated physical on file during the entirety of the season.Student’s physical must be current! Current means within the last 13 months.  For example; If a student’s physical was done on February 1st, 2016, the student’s physical will expire on March 2nd, 2017.  Any student without a current physical WILL NOT be eligible to play after expiration date – STATE LAW. There are no exceptions. The MIAA strictly enforces this and all matches or games played with an ineligible student are subject to forfeit.
