Green Brook Family Medicine Sports Exam

  1. Every sports season you need to hand in paperwork for participation in a sport.

In order for a student to tryout for an interscholastic sport at GBMS, they must have a current NJ Sports Physical and student athlete forms on file in the nurse’s office which has been approved by our school MD.  These are valid for 365 days, and are done once per year.

* Click on Sports Packet link below and please provide all necessary signatures when filling out the forms!  Paperwork must be completed or it will be returned to you (for example: missing vision, signatures, etc.). All athletes must hand in the necessary paperwork to the school nurse, Mrs. Ghiretti.  

  These forms can be found by clicking the link below:


  • If your child already has a sports physical on file approved by the school physician in the last year in the nurse’s office and they wish to tryout for another sport, please make sure to fill out the health history update form that can be submitted electronically to the school nurse.  This form indicates to us that nothing has changed medically with your child since you last submitted the sports physical: This form can be found by clicking the following link: Spring 2024 Health History Update

NJ State Law mandates that ALL physical forms MUST be reviewed and approved by the school physician prior to try-outs, practices or games/meets. Late forms will delay or eliminate athlete’s attendance at try-outs, practices or games/meets.

Required once per year to reflect a medical examination which was done within the last 365 days and prior to the form’s deadlines.  A physical exam more than 365 days old has expired. A new physical exam must be submitted to the health office within two weeks of the expiration date should your child’s physical expire before the end of the season. An updated physical will need to be submitted for continued participation in the sport.
