UIL requirements include an annual student physical. The student’s parent or guardian must print the pre-participation physical examination (PPE) form to complete with a physician, pediatrician, physician’s assistant, chiropractor, or nurse practitioner. Student physicals should be dated no earlier than May 1, 2024 to be eligible for the 2024-2025 school year.

Clinics for student physicals are not offered at Melissa ISD; however, a number of Melissa-area clinics offer this service for families including QuestCare, CommunityMed, and Texas Health Resources.

New this year, physicals can be uploaded directly to Rank One. For further instructions and answers to frequently asked questions, head to the Melissa ISD UIL Required Forms website for more information.

Questions regarding required documentation for UIL participants can be directed to the Melissa ISD head athletic trainer, Allie Berman, at allieberman@melissaisd.org.
