The first step in your child starting a new sport or camp is to ensure they are healthy and ready to participate. A pre-participation physical exam (PPE), pays special attention to the cardiopulmonary and musculoskeletal systems. This in-depth evaluation identifies youth who are at risk of developing an illness or injury during physical activities.
Physical exams not only prepare students to participate in sports but also give parents valuable information about their child’s health. The process addresses the student’s full medical history, including immunizations. Students will need to bring their completed and signed state athletic association physical form and any additional forms provided and required by the school or camp.
