From Athletic Trainer Zach Noel

My name is Zach Noel and I am the Head Athletic Trainer here at Northeastern School District. Many of you already know me but if you do not, I am the one that will be taking care of all your kids that will be playing sports for the school in 7th-12th grades. A big part of playing sports for the school is completion of the annual PIAA sports pre-participation packet (physical). This is something that needs to be done on an annual basis. Any athlete that is planning on trying out/playing for one of the school’s athletic teams during the 2022-2023 school year needs to have a PIAA physical completed AFTER June 1, 2022. Any physicals completed and dated prior to June 1, 2022 will be considered invalid, and will not be accepted. Here at Northeastern, we use RankOne as our injury tracking/athlete documentation software. Just like last year, you will need to go on to RankOne, find your child’s profile, and complete the online forms. This can all be done after June 1st. The forms that will need to be completed on RankOne are Sections 1-5 of the PIAA packet, along with the “Northeastern Athletics Eligibility Form.” Instructions for doing this have been attached. Section 6 (Past Medical History) and Section 7 (Doctor’s form) of the PIAA packet will need to be printed (I’ve attached a copy to this email) and turned in as hard copies. Section 6 needs to be completed by a parent/guardian and taken along to the doctor’s appointment or sports physical and the doctor needs to complete section 7. Once both are completed, they can be turned in to the HIGH SCHOOL MAIN OFFICE and addressed to“athletic trainer.” The online forms, along with the hard copies of Sections 6&7 of the PIAA packet must all be turned in prior to your child’s first day of tryouts/official practice. If anything is missing or incomplete, your child will not be permitted to participate until everything properly completed. If your child plays multiple sports, the paperwork needs to be completed only once, prior to the start of their first sports season.

 

For the doctor's portion (Section 7), there are some options for getting this completed. The first option is to bring your child to the open sports physicals being held here at Northeastern HS on the following dates:

Northeastern High School (300 High Street, Manchester, PA 17345)

·         Tuesday June 21st, 6-8pm (first come first serve) *OPEN TO ATHLETES OF ALL SEASONS

·         Tuesday August 2nd, 6-8pm (first come first serve) *OPEN TO ATHLETES OF ALL SEASONS

The physicals being held at Northeastern HS are $15 cash/check

The second option is to make an appointment for one of the several sports physicals dates being offered at the OSS office on Powder Mill Rd. or the office on Roosevelt Ave in West York.

OSS Health Powder Mill (1855 Powder Mill Rd, York, PA 17402)

·         Wednesday June 15 *OPEN TO FALL ATHLETES ONLY

·         Thursday June 7 *OPEN TO FALL ATHLETES ONLY

·         Thursday August 9 *OPEN TO FALL ATHLETES ONLY

OSS Health West York (1665 Roosevelt Ave, West Manchester Township, PA 17408)

·         Thursday June 23 *OPEN TO FALL ATHLETES ONLY

·         Monday July 18 *OPEN TO FALL ATHLETES ONLY

For the above dates at one of the OSS Health locations, the cost is $15 cash/check/card and appointments can be scheduled by calling 717-848-4800.

I highly recommend trying to get your child into one of the OSS sports physicals as these are typically the cheapest and quickest option.

 

Remember, sections 6 and 7 of the PIAA packet MUST be printed and brought along to any physical taking place at OSS or at Northeastern High School. I know this is a lot of information to take in. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me via email (noelz@nebobcats.org) or my assistant, Drew Schryver (schryverd@nebobcats.org) if you have any questions or concerns. I am not at the school during the summer due to my contract but I will be checking my emails regularly. Drew or I will return any emails hopefully within 24-72hrs of receiving them. Thank you!
