NCFL Physician forms are required to be filled out by your physician, or an APRN or RN in their office or a walk-in clinic.  A physical is not required by NCFL or CYF; we require that your physician sign off (after January 1, 2021) on your athlete to be physically fit to participate in the contact spot of football or cheerleading.  Before they can participate, they must have this form completed.  If you have a state blue physical form signed by your physician after January 1, 2021 you can use this form, but the parent is still required to sign the NCFL physician form.  Both of these forms will be required for your athlete to participate.  Please keep in mind that some physician offices take a few weeks to fill this form out, please plan ahead.
