See below for important information regarding the NCHSAA guidelines for return to play during COVID-19.


Parent/Athlete COVID-19 Return to Play guidelines



Per state requirements, in order for students to participate in any workouts or tryouts for the upcoming year, an UPDATED PHYSICAL and a COMPLETED ATHLETIC PACKET must be on file. Please make sure all appropriate paperwork is up to date and submitted through the Athletic Clearance website.  Direct any questions to the Athletic Trainer, Amber Edwards or Athletic Director, Michelle Phifer.
In an effort to reduce the Earth's carbon footprint, the Union Academy Athletic Department has moved to an online portal for collection of the annual NCHSAA required athletic packet.  Instructions for submitting the athletic packet, the physical form, as well as a link to the "Athletic Clearance" site can be found to the right, or by accessing through the main website under Important Forms. 
Due to the extraordinary circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in school closures, a one year emergency addition to the State Board of Education Policy, ATHL-001, Interscholastic Athletics, was approved by the State Board of Education on April 23, 2020.  This action states that any student athlete that has a physical that is dated on or after March 01, 2019 is granted an extension to participate through the end of the 2020-21 academic year without a new annual physical.  The Union Academy Athletic Department continues to recommend annual physicals however, if a student athlete's physical is dated after March 01, 2019, the physician's portion of the physical is NOT required to be uploaded.  The first 2 pages of the form (student athlete's health history) is STILL REQUIRED!
Please reach out to your child's coach, Michelle Phifer, Greg Gregory or Amber Edwards with any questions.
  • Please do NOT submit any athletic paperwork to your child's homeroom teacher.  
    • The beginning of the year brings with it a lot of changes as well as paperwork.  We do not want any delays in getting the athletic paperwork to the appropriate personnel which could prevent your child from participating.
Please contact Michelle Phifer at mphifer@unionacademy.org if you have any questions.
