In order to be medically eligible for participation in practice or in interscholastic athletic contests, a student must have a completed NCHSAA PPE and submit it to the school.
**The PPE is four (4) pages in length and includes the History Form, the Physical Examination Form, and the Medical Eligibility Form.
**The PPE History Form (pages 1-2) is completed and signed by the parent or legal custodian on behalf of the student-athlete.
**The completed and signed PPE History Form must then be presented to the examining Licensed Medical Professional (LMP) (physician licensed to practice medicine (MD/DO), nurse practitioner or physician assistant) for review when they fill out the Physical Examination Form.

**The PPE Medical Eligibility Form (page 4), which is also signed and dated by the LMP, indicates the student-athlete is either medically eligible or not medically eligible for sports participation.
