Athletic Forms - Required

The Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) requires a completed Preparticipation Physical Evaluation form, a Consent and Release from Liability Certificate, and a Concussion & Heat-Related Illness form to be on file with the Athletic Director prior to the student-athlete’s participation in any sports activity. These three athletic forms all must be provided annually. Click here for all three mandatory FHSAA forms in one PDF file.

Please note: These athletic forms are in addition to the two health forms required upon entry to the school, which are kept on file in the Registrar’s Office. (See High School Health Forms below.)

Deadline: FHSAA athletic forms all must be received by the Jesuit athletic director no later than the Thursday before the first day practice in order for students to participate in that practice. If forms are turned in after that, they will be processed as they are received and participation will not be permitted until the forms are processed. Please contact athletic director Terry Rupp at (813) 877-5344 ext. 612 with any questions.
High School Health Forms (not athletic forms)
Schools are required by state law to have on file every student’s health record (Goldenrod Form DH3040, available only from a physician’s office or the health department) for the year of the student’s entry. We are also required by law to have a certificate of immunization (Blue Form DH 680) also available only from a physician’s office or the health department). Jesuit’s Registrar handles receipt of these forms. If these forms have not been received, the registrar will contact you. The Health Department will close down a school that does not have these forms on file for every student.
