Most schools, camps, and organizations require a sports physical before your child can participate in sports and other physical activities.

During a sports physical, a healthcare provider examines your child, and reviews their medical history. This is done to screen for conditions that may put your child at a higher risk of injury, illness or other health problems that can result from physical activity.

Sports physicals help your child take part in sports as safely as possible. They give parents, healthcare providers and coaches important information about a young athlete’s health. With this information, you can all work together to prevent injuries.
