In accordance with NYC Health Code and Columbia University Policy, we require all campers to have an approved physical examination form on file before they can play.
Acceptable forms must be signed by a physician and dated to reflect a physical examination completed within a year of the last day your child plan's to attend camp.
The NYC Physical Examination form is available for download HERE.
As an alternative to the NYC Physical Examination form, we will happily accept a comparable form from your child's pediatrician. Please note that a full physical examination form is required, and we cannot accept a note from your doctor indicating that your camper is cleared to play. The NYC Soccer Academy is required to adhere to this New York City Health Code and Columbia University guideline in order to hold our camp, and NO exceptions can be permitted. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
