Per the SOI General Rules, athletes competing in an area competition, which may include certain local competitions, must have a signed medical before they can begin practicing.
Medicals must be on file in with the area office prior to the start of training for all athletes planning on competing at an area competition, or at a local competition not under an Independent School District or other agency umbrella.
Any athlete who does not have an active medical prior to competition entry deadline, will be scratched from the competition. No exemptions will be made. This will include any athlete whose medical expires prior to competition.
Please do not fax medicals to the area office, but rather scan and email.
