Pre-Participation Physicals Exam Schedule for
Saturday, April 25, 2015
County Middle Schools....8:00 am
DCH SportsMedicine offers complete pre-participation physical
examinations for area athletes in accordance with the Alabama High
School Athletic Association and the Alabama Independent School Association.
This year the examinations will be held on Saturday, April 25, 2015 in the Sports
and Medicine Complex at the Northport Medical Center. Please refer to the
attached schedule for your school’s time. Also, our next scheduled date will be
January 9, 2016. Remember we do not have any summer dates scheduled.
Please encourage your athletes to attend when your school is assigned. The
fee for physicals is $15 or $10 with a piece of usable medical equipment
(Refer to enclosed list). Usable medical equipment will be defined as equipment
in good condition with all of its working parts and pieces. If the equipment comes
as a set (for example crutches - pair) the entire set will need to be turned in for credit.
Please use the most updated physical
form from ahsaa.com or the attachment.
If you would like your athletes to attend, please see
that they adhere to the following guidelines:
1) There is a nominal fee of $15.00 or $10.00 with a piece of usable
equipment (see above definition) to be paid in cash by the athlete at the
time of the physical. This money will benefit the DCH SportsMedicine Fund,
a part of the DCH Foundation, Inc. This fund provides service and educational
opportunities to area schools, recreational sports organizations,
and individuals. For more than 23 years the DCH SportsMedicine
Fund has provided protective and preventive athletic equipment to
area athletes and supplies and equipment for area high school training rooms.
Athletes who do not have payment the day of physicals will not be given
a physical exam. Please encourage your athletes to
bring cash only and exact change if possible.
2) The medical history section of the physical form must be filled out
and signed by the athlete AND his or her parent/guardian. Please fill
out forms in black or blue ink. We cannot perform a physical exam
unless the form is properly completed and signed by the parent/guardian.
Please consider giving out the forms early so the athletes will have
plenty of time to properly fill out the medical history section
and get it signed. Please make sure you use the most
recent physical form. I am attaching it to this email for you.
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to provide CRMS
athletes, and their parents with our services here at DCH
