Sports Physical Information

Sports Physicals Directions and Help Page

 

Starting with the 2023 winter sports season, Central Cambria Athletics has transitioned to an online format for physicals utilizing BigTeams. 

 

You can access the login page or create a parent account on BigTeams by CLICKING HERE

 

For full, step by step instructions for setting up your account and navigating the BigTeams website, please CLICK HERE

 

With moving to the electronic system, all forms except for Section 6 will be completed online with a mobile device or laptop. Section 6 is the form completed by the physician at the time of the physical. 

You can download a copy by clicking the link below. You can also download and print Section 5 after you complete the form on BigTeams to take to your physician at the time of the physical.

General Information and FAQ’s

Throughout the process you will see many pop-ups asking to purchase sports/liability insurance. These pop-ups are from BigTeams and can be ignored as it is not a Central Cambria product

 

-Completing the emergency contact information takes time, but saves time later when completing Sections 1 and 7. 

 

-If you feel that you made an error during the account creation process or are not sure if you have everything completed properly, feel free to contact our office and we will try to assist you as best as possible. 

Common problems that we encounter include:

  • Not properly linking the parent and student accounts

  • Creating a student account with parent email/credentials

  • Creating a parent account with student email/credentials

  • Missing parent or student initials on some or all forms

  • Trouble linking multiple student accounts to one parent account

  • Missing the recertification form when an athlete has a physical from the summer/fall but is signing up for a winter or spring sport. This form is required whenever a physical was completed during or in preparation for a previous athletic season

 

Q: I have multiple student’s who play sports, do I need to create a parent account for each one?

No. Multiple students can be linked to a single parent account in either the account creation process or from the athletic forms tab in your parent account.

 

Q: My student received a physical in the summer but is just now playing a sport in the winter/spring, do they need a recertification form?

Yes. The recertification form needs to be completed any time a physical was received in a prior sports season. IE- summer for winter/spring sports, fall for spring sports.

 

Q: I need to complete a Recertification Form, but I am not seeing it on the forms page. How do I get it to show?

In order for the recertification form to show, a fall sport needs to be check marked for a winter sport, and a fall or winter sport needs to be check marked for a spring sport. Even if your student didn’t participate in a previous sports season, it is okay to check mark any random sport from a previous season. This will need to be done for instances where your student received a sports physical for a previous season as addressed in the last FAQ.

 

Q: I believe I completed all of the forms but I’m not sure. How do I know if everything is filled out correctly?

Prior to completion, the forms will all say “incomplete” in red text. Once completed entirely, this changes to either green text saying “complete” or red text saying “awaiting staff approval”. Both of these messages indicate that your portion is complete. If the form is missing anything however, the text will remain red and say either “awaiting parent signature” or “awaiting student signature”. Once the health team approves your pending forms, the status will change to “complete”.

 

Q: I’m trying to fill out the emergency contact information but it won’t let me save certain fields or is forcing me to add phone numbers I don’t have, etc.

Unfortunately, when completing the emergency information it will require you to fill out all if not most fields. When completing the phone portion, we do request one phone number, after that, you can either enter the same number in all 3 locations, or enter the first phone number followed by a generic number such as (888) 888-8888 as it will require the proper phone number format to save. If the field is left blank or not the correct format, it will force you to correct before saving. 

 

Q: Do I need to print anything out from BigTeams?

Every form can be completed online except for Section 6 which can be uploaded by taking a picture with your phone. However, it is recommended that Section 5 also be printed if possible to take with you to the doctor at the time of the physical.
