DPISD Athletics Home

In athletics we often talk about and encourage our athletes to be “great teammates”, and we are in a situation now where we in DPISD need to be great teammates and support what our State and County Governments are asking all to do.   As a result, we are suspending our Summer Training Program (STP) and Sport Specific Skill Instruction for all sports both high school and junior high school until further notice.   We will continue to monitor the situation and act accordingly.

I am proud of the work our District and Coaches have put in order to keep the safety of our athletes the first priority.  I also need to mention that any refund announcements will be forth coming once we know exactly where we are headed.

If you have any questions please reach out to your Head Coach or Athletic Director Darren Chandler at dchandler@dpisd.org.

Stay home and stay safe.  And Go Deer!!!

Important Changes for the Pre-Participation Physical Exam for the 2020-2021 School Year

Due to the COVID-19 virus and the effect it has had on the health care system, the UIL has made changes to the pre-participation physical exam requirements for the 2020-2021 school year.

1.  All pre-participation physical exams from the 2019-2020 school year will be valid for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.  So, under most circumstances, if participants already have a UIL physical on file with the DPISD Athletic Trainers for 2019-2020, they will NOT have to get a new physical for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.

2.  If participants do not have a UIL physical on file with the DPISD Athletic Trainers for the 2019-2020 school year, they will be required to get a physical to participate in the 2020-2021 school year.  This will include all incoming 7th grade athletes and anyone who is new to participation in athletics, escorts, cheer, or high school marching band.

3.  ALL PARTICIPANTS must complete the medical history form, which is now an electronic form through the Rank One website.  Any participant who answers "yes" to certain questions on the electronic medical history form will be required to get a physical prior to participation.

The DPISD Athletic Trainers can only accept the current medical history and physical examination form available from the UIL.  The current form is noted with a "2020" in the upper right corner on the Medical History form.  We cannot accept any previous version of this form prior to the current 2020 form.  If you are required to obtain a physical, please be sure you bring the current 2020 form with you to your physician.  You can download and print the latest form from the DPISD Athletics page or from Rank One.

DPISD requires that all required athletic paperwork be submitted to the DPISD Athletic Trainers PRIOR to any tryouts.  Students in an athletic period must meet this requirement to stay in an athletic period even if the tryouts for their sport do not occur until later in the school year.
