Effective August 1, 2019, the GHSA has adopted the newest version of the Pre-Participation Exam, 5th edition created by the American Academy of Pediatrics and five other associations including the American College of Sports Medicine and the National Athletic Trainers Association.
The 2019 edition replaces all previous editions in use including the most recent 2010 edition currently in use. The new version has added mental health questions as well as more questions about cardiac health and new orthopedic screenings.
This GHSA pre-participation exam form is the only one that will be allowed for the student’s exam (no other formats will be accepted).
We recognize this is going to take time to get rid of old editions. We encourage the changeover to start immediately. However, because there may be 2010 versions already in circulation, those will be accepted through the end of 2019. Then, starting January 1 2020, only the 2019 version will be accepted.
The new forms are now on this web site under the MORE tab in the Banner at the top of the Main Page under Forms.
Thank you for your assistance!
