Welcome to the WAMS Health Office

Please have your student bring all forms/medical notes to the nurse.

How to register for sports at WAMS.
Go to our Sports Online Registration (OR) link. Note: You must register online and submit Physical and History forms to the nurse. ** You can not upload physicals, fax, or email! Original documents must be turned in to the health office.  

On-line Registration for SPRING Sports is Now Open.

Completing Sports Paperwork:
Deadline for Spring Paperwork is Friday, February 16, 2024.

Parents complete the Pre-Participation Health History Form and physicians must complete the Physical Form, pages 3 & 4 in the Athletic Sports Physical and Health History Update Form. All signatures must be completed. Physicals are good for one year. The physical must be in force on the first day of practice, otherwise a new physical shall be needed.

You must use the State Physical Forms, linked above, no exceptions. Please make sure the date of the physical exam is clearly labeled (this may be different from the day the Physician signs the form). The Physician must fill out the form completely including blood pressure, pulse, and vision (common areas they tend to leave blank). If there are missing areas, forms will be returned to the parent.

As long as your child's physical was within 365 days of the start of his/her sport and the Heath History Update form was completed and dated within 365 days of the start of his/her sport, you only need to complete and update the online sport registration in the Genesis parent portal.

If the Physical Form is not completely filled out, your forms will be returned to you causing delays. We can not process incomplete forms. NO EXCEPTIONS.

The MHS School Doctor strongly encourages all potential student-athletes to have their sport physicals administered by their family doctors.

The Moorestown Preparticipation Physical Packet is mandatory for participation in interscholastic sports if your current physical was administered more than 365 days before the start of your Fall Sport’s first practice.
