Abstract: If G is a finite group, the reduction $ \bmod \; p$ of a module supporting a nondegenerate G-invariant form need not itself support such a form. However, under a suitable hypothesis on the splitting field (quadratric closure) and a carefully chosen lattice within the module (for reduction $ \bmod \; p$), this will always be the case. The argument given is elementary and self-contained.
