The health and well-being of our student-athletes are of paramount importance. As we gear up for another exciting sports season, we want to remind all student-athletes and their families about the importance of sports physicals.
Why Are Sports Physicals Essential?
Sports physicals are not just a requirement; they are a vital step in ensuring the safety and health of our young athletes. These examinations help identify any underlying medical conditions that may affect a student's ability to participate in sports. They also serve as a preventive measure to detect potential issues before they become serious.
