What Is a Pre-Participation Sports Physical?

A pre-participation sports physical examination ensures that student athletes are healthy and well enough to engage in their chosen athletic endeavor. These checkups are often mandatory under state law and must be conducted for every participation year.

The physical should include:

  • Immunizations, if necessary
  • Height and weight
  • Checking blood pressure
  • Checking pulse
  • Vision test
  • Hearing test
  • Examining strength, flexibility, and posture
  • Heart examination
  • Lung examination
  • Abdominal examination
  • Ear, nose, and throat examination
