Dear Parents & Students,As we end one school year, it is time to prepare for the next. Throughout the summer students may have opportunities in individual sports to improve their skills. The fall sports season begins with Heat Acclimatization for varsity football beginning on August 9th. Most other sports will begin their fall seasons on August 16th. In order to participate in a fall sport, students must have a physical which has to be dated on or after June 1, 2021. We will be providing physicals this summer on July 12 - 14 from 8:30 am - 11:30 am each day. A schedule for physicals was emailed to students during the last week of school and is available here. Physicals will be done in the high school, using Door #25.
For this upcoming year, the Wallenpaupack Athletic Department will be using a program that is part of Big Teams/Schedule Star called Planet HS, or Student Central. This program will allow students and parents to access the PIAA CIPPE form for physicals. Every student and parent will need to create an account through Student Central. Instructions to create your account are available here. The PIAA CIPPE will be there for you to fill out.
When we do physicals here at school, we will be able to upload the physical or give you a copy for you to upload to your account. Those of you who will have a private physician do your physical, will be able to upload that to your account as well. I know that change is sometimes difficult, but this will improve all types of communication. We just want to start out small. Eventually, all Athletic Department paperwork will be in your account.
I am looking forward to the 2021 - 2022 school year, as I am optimistic that our student-athletes will have even more opportunities to participate and compete than they did this year. I will be in the Athletic Office throughout the summer where you can contact me if you have any questions.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Any student who wishes to participate in a Wallenpaupack Area School District PIAA sports team for the 2021-2022 school year, must complete the CIPPE form, which is also found under the "WAHS->Athletics->Forms" link on our website. Please note that it is also available on Student Central (see above) once your account is setup.
There is an urgent need for high school officials. Click the image below to learn more and pick the sports you'd like to officiate.
