The following items need to be completed prior to check-in for tryouts:

  • Students must have a current physical on file with the athletic office (dated within the last 13 months). Upon check-in, students will be checked for a valid physical. If they do not have a valid physical on file, they will be sent home. Physical forms can be downloaded at this link or from https://il.8to18.com/OakLawnCommunityHS/ under the “Resources” section. Updated physical forms can be hand delivered to the athletic office, emailed to our athletic office staff, or turned in at check-in for tryouts.

On Campus Athletic Sports Physical Exam

If you are in need of a new sports physical for the 2023-2024 school year, OLCHS will have walk-in appointments with medical professionals available from 3pm-5pm on Wednesday, July 26th in the Nurse’s Office. All students will need to bring the IHSA Pre-participation Physical Evaluation form with pages 2 and 3 completed in order for exam to be completed. Cost is $15 cash or check made out to OLCHS. The physical form is available on the athletics web page at www.olchs.org for download. Open to current or incoming OLCHS students only. Appointments will be taken on a first come, first serve basis within the scheduled time frame. We will try our best to move the appointments quickly, but after 5pm, individuals in line are not guaranteed an appointment.
