I have a question that I hope someone can help me with. I just came off profile for a partially torn acl. I was on profile for about 5 months. As I understand I now have 90 days of recocery time. I joined a softball team and now my 1sg is saying because I am on recovery I can not do any activities like that. But I was actually given a pt test while on temporary profile and passed all my events, I just did the walk instead of the run. So is my 1SG allowed to tell me I cant participate in a softball league while on recovery??
When I was in profile recovery was only to keep them from springing a PT test on you the day after you got off of profile. It only meant that you couldn't be forced to take a PT test during that time. If you weren't completely fit for duty you'd have a profile.
I'm curious to see exactly what the regulations on profile recovery are.

I know this thread was created before the institution of the new Army Physical Training Program known as PRT. Now it is more clear than ever that part of the answer to the original question is located in TC3-22.20 and reads as follows:
RECOVERY FROM INJURY, ILLNESS, OR MEDICAL CONDITION 6-6. Soldiers recovering from injury, illness, or other medical conditions must train within the limits of their medical profiles (DA Form 3349 [Physical Profile]) and be afforded a minimum train-up period of twice the length of the profile. Prescribed train-up periods must not exceed 90 days before APFT administration or other unit physical readiness goal requirements IAW AR 350-1.
As for participating in a sport while on recovery and a first sergeant's authority to restrict you from such activities is probably a question for IG rather than this forum. I hope this helps people looking for this answer.
