Disability Verification/Medical Release Form
If you are a new student, have your doctor complete the Disability Verification/Medical Release form and bring it to the first class session. If you are returning from a change in your medical condition, be certain to have your doctor list any limitations or recommendations and check the box "Permission to return to exercise program" box. Download the Disability Verification/Medical Release form.
If you decide to take an adapted P.E. or adapted aquatics class, you will benefit from an individualized program designed for your specific physical capabilities. A team effort contributes to the success of the adapted P.E. and adapted aquatics classes. To get the most out of your exercise program, you will receive help and supervision from an instructor, assistant and instructional aides.
