News on Physicals for 2020 CYO Football Season:

Many parents have had difficulties obtaining a physical for their child this summer.  Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is an option in terms of physicals.  This year only, if your son or daughter had a valid physical on file last year, that physical will be accepted again this year as long as it is accompanied by the 2020-21 Health Questionnaire Form*.  Read the health form carefully.  If your child is not able to meet the requirements on that health form, they must obtain a new physical, dated after 4/15/20.   If your child did not play sports last year, the new health form does not qualify, and they must obtain a new physical, dated after 4/15/20.
