Head athletic trainer Oscar Melero tapes a student-athlete's wrist.

Sacred Heart Cathedral’s Sports Medicine Program provides an excellent standard of care for our over 650 student-athletes in all 53 teams. The program provides injury prevention, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation, as well as implements the ImPACT program, a computerized neurocognitive assessment tool for treating concussions. Our two full-time certified athletic trainers also serve as first responders on campus for the SHC community and provide medical care, education and information on many non-sports-related issues as well as all sports injuries.



Pre-Participation Physical Exam (PPE) and Athletic Participation Forms

We are partnering with Magnus Health to collect, manage and electronically store student health information, parent/guardian contact information, Preparticipation Physical Exam (PPE) Form, and electronically complete other mandated athletic participation related forms.  You can find details regarding the privacy and security of this system here.  

This new system will help ensure that accurate and timely information is accessible to parents and appropriate school personnel. It should also reduce the amount of paperwork for parents to complete each year. As this is a web-based system, you will have continuous access to your child’s health record as well as the ability to make updates when needed.

Here is a checklist of things that should be entered into Magnus:

  • Conditional Questions
  • Vital Health Record - Health History
  • Consent to Treat Form
  • Athletic Participation Forms
  • Preparticipation Physical Exam (PPE) Form

And, if applicable:

  • Prescription Medication Form
  • Asthma Action Plan Form
  • Food Allergy Action Plan Form
  • Diabetes Action Plan Form
  • Seizure Action Plan Form

Contact Mr. Sazo if you are having difficulty accessing your Magnus Account.

Freshman (Class of 2023)All students in the class of 2023 are required to submit the Preparticipation Physical Exam Form and Immunization Form through Magnus.  These forms are due August 1, 2019.  These forms are required even if you child is not participating in athletics.  Please contact Mr. Sazo if you are having issues accessing your Magnus account.

Information for Visiting Teams

Most on-site athletic events will be covered by an athletic trainer and provided access to water and ice for injuries. These sports include: girls and boys volleyball, girls and boys basketball, football and wrestling. If you would like to arrange for treatment for a student-athlete, please contact the head athletic trainer, Mr. Oscar Melero, ahead of time at 415.775.6626 ext. 788 or at

Due to the numerous off-campus sites for outdoor sports, an athletic trainer may not be present for all events. These sites have limited or no access to water or ice for injuries, so we strongly suggest visiting teams bring water, injury ice and a first aid kit. Again, if you would like to arrange for treatment for a student-athlete please contact Mr. Oscar Melero ahead of time.
