Chesapeake Public Schools provides opportunities for all students to be involved in extracurricular student activities. Athletics is one of these opportunities. It is IRH’s hope that students will learn valuable skills such as  respect, responsibility, fairness,  trust, teamwork, problem solving, critical thinking, good sportsmanship, and leadership through athletics.  Any student interested in participating in athletics must have a VHSL physical completed on the VHSL physical form each year.  This physical must be completed after May 1st of the previous year.  Physical forms must be completely filled in and properly signed, attesting that the student has been examined and found to be physically fit and able to participate in athletic competition and that his or her parent/guardian consents to participation.

All students participating in a VHSL sport or activity must complete the form below before they participate in a competition.
