    The Spring Grove Area School District Athletic Trainer & Strength Coordinator is committed to providing quality healthcare to the student-athletes of the Spring Grove Area School District through prevention, evaluation, rehabilitation, and treatment of athletic injuries and illness.  

    In association with the National Athletic Training Association, the Spring Grove Area School District Athletic Trainer & Strength Coordinator would like to remind you that:

    • Athletic Training is practiced by certified athletic trainers: healthcare professionals who work to prevent, diagnose, and intervene in case of emergency, acute and chronic medical conditions, particularly in the orthopedic and musculoskeletal disciplines.

    • Athletic trainers hold at least a bachelor's degree, are certified through an independent agency, the Board of Certification, Incorporated, and are Licensed by the State of Pennsylvania.
    • Athletic trainers are part of the sports medicine and health care team, which includes physicians and other healthcare personnel.

    • Athletic trainers provide a financial return on investment for secondary schools, occupational employers, physicians, hospitals, and clinics, and help to ease the burden on the public and private health care systems.

    • Athletic trainers differ from personal trainers or "trainers", who focus solely on fitness and conditioning. Athletic trainers have higher education and certification requirements than personal trainers. 

    The Spring Grove Area School District is now implementing home baseline testing for the ImPACT computer concussion system.  Please click on the link for ImPACT Information in the left column for further details. 


    Physical Information & Forms

    All physical paperwork, other than sections 6 and 7, must be completed online in the Rank One System. No paper copies will be accepted. 
    Families will need their student's student ID#, which can be found in the student's Sapphire account. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Marina Rohrbaugh at rohrbaum@sgasd.org
    The PIAA requires that all athletes receive a physical each year after June 1 and that the physical be completed on the PIAA Comprehensive Initial Preparticipation Evaluation (CIPPE) form. No other physical forms are acceptable.

    The PIAA also stipulates that a physical or a re-certification be completed no more than 6 weeks prior to the official start of the sports season (fall, winter, spring).

    The 2022-2023 Physical Forms
    • You need to print a hard copy of the Health History and the Medical Examiner pages to take to the doctor's office to be completed. The link to these pages is here: Health History and Medical Examiner Pages
    If you have any questions on physical forms or what forms need to be completed for what seasons, please do not hesitate to contact the Athletic Office at 717-225-4731, ext 7539.


    Student-Athlete Health and Safety

    This section of the website is designed to bring parents information, focusing on three areas of health and safety for student-athletes, including:

    The Pennsylvania Act 101 “Safety in Youth Sports Act” and Act 59 “Sudden Cardiac Arrest Act” requires school districts to inform and educate coaches, parents/guardians, and athletes about concussions and sudden cardiac arrest through training and/or information fact sheets.

    PLEASE NOTE: This information is provided only as a resource. Only a certified physician can diagnose injuries and prescribe recuperative medications and procedures.
