Required Forms for Participation:

     1. Physical using the NCHSAA PPE form

     2. Concussion Forms (2 - child and parent)

     3. Substance Abuse Form



PPE (Pre Participation Exam) or Sports Physical

To participate in the Greensboro Day School Athletic programs, students must have a current physical on file (NCHSAA Form), signed by a parent and doctor clearing you for full participation in athletics.  

This PPE is different from a pediatric annual wellness screening.  

No student may participate in athletics at Greensboro Day School with an expired physical. 

 NOTE: This information is separate from files kept within the GDS Health Room.

**Do not turn in the PPE to the Health Room**

 Each PPE is valid for 1 year from the date of the exam, not date signed.  

Please note, your child's DATE OF EXAM when submitting his/her physical.


Greensboro Day School offers a PPE/Sports Physical in early August of each school year provided by our team physicians Murphy Wainer Orthopedics.  This $20.00 Pre-Participation Sports Physical will cover your student athlete for all 3 sport seasons, Fall, Winter, and Spring, (this is NOT covered by insurance or co-pays).   

NOTE:  This is NOT a substitute for your child's annual pediatric wellness exam covered by your insurance.  

It is recommended that families choose to complete the PPE in early August to ensure their child is not restricted from participation due to a physical expiring mid season.  

No student may participate in athletics at Greensboro Day School with an expired physical. 

All physicals MUST be signed by a Physician and a Parent.


Required Concussion Forms: 

 Both the parent and student must read and sign concussion forms for participation.

In accordance with the Gfeller-Waller Concussion Awareness Act established by the General Assembly of North Carolina, Greensboro Day School has adopted procedures regarding recognition, treatment, and management of traumatic brain injuries. These procedures are intended to promote proper training protocols to minimize the risks of head injuries and their subsequent complications to our athletes as they participate in our program.  

Student Behavior Contract: 

 Understanding and Agreement of Student Athletes Behavior on and off the court/field


These forms are to be filled out each year by student athletes and signed by their parents.
