This fitness must be based on a physical examination of the student occurring after April 1 and must be verified in writing by a licensed medical/osteopathic physician/physician's assistant or nurse practitioner to the extent authorized by their practice act and licensing authority. The physical is considered valid through the following school year. The certificate of examination must be on file in the member school office. This requirement applies to cheer/drill participants as well.
