Sports Physicals

Please be advised that the Toms River Regional School District will be unable to provide student physicals for participation in athletics. Therefore, if your son or daughter wants to participate during the school year, the required medical clearance packet must be completed in its entirety by your family health care provider.

Packets will be available in the health and athletic offices in each school.

If you have any questions please call the district athletic office at 732-505-5522.


As a result of a state mandate, requirements for Sports Physicals have changed. Students must have their physicals performed at their own "medical home" (family physician/advanced practice nurse). If a student does not have their own "medical home", the certified school nurse will offer information to the parents/guardians on current New Jersey sponsored health insurance programs (see the below Notice of Change for more details).

Please note the following important information about sports physicals:

  • All physicals must be completed using the forms provided by the school (Health History, to be completed by parent/guardian and Pre-Participation Physical Examination, to be completed by physician/health care provider). NO OTHER FORMS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
  • Physical exams may not be done by a chiropractor.
  • Sports physicals must have been completed within 365 days of the first day of tryouts for any given sport.
  • All physicals must be reviewed by the school physician, per regulation. It might take up to two weeks to do so. Therefore, they must be submitted by the assigned school deadline.
  • Only physicals that are signed, stamped, and contain the Cardiac Assessment Development Module physician assigned number will be considered complete and valid.
