Information for athletes in grades 7 - 12 for the 2015-2015 school year. The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) has initiated a new digital standard for the pre-participation process, called e-PPE powered by PrivIT (electronic Pre-Participation). The OHSAA e-PPE includes a more comprehensive health history questionnaire that is easy to use, legible, and accessible to help mitigate injury risks related to sports. The system facilitates the management of the PPE process and provides coaches, athletic trainers, and medical personnel the information they need to react quickly to health situations.
