Summer is almost here but believe it or not, it’s also time to prepare for the next school year. Soon thousands of middle, junior and high school student-athletes will be trying out and practicing for their school teams. Whether they’re playing on a court or a field, your child will need proof of a current sports physical examination.

Pre-participation exams are usually required by the school district or sports league and are important to ensure your child is physically ready to play. In addition, sports physicals are the best way to inform coaches about a player’s medical issues or previous injuries.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the pre-participation physical exam take place with the student-athlete’s primary care doctor. This allows for a complete and private visit with a physician who knows your child and is familiar with their health history, allowing them to evaluate any record of past injuries or concussions.

During your child’s sports physical, your CPCMG pediatrician will review your child’s medical records, family history and immunization records. We will also screen for mental health concerns and counsel the athlete on healthy habits like good nutrition, drug and alcohol avoidance, and playing sports safely. After completing a detailed medical exam, your CPCMG pediatrician will complete required paperwork or order referrals or further testing if needed.

At CPCMG, we are ready to help your child be the best athlete they can be. Sports physicals can be scheduled during regular business hours at your CPCMG provider’s office or after-hours at one of our Children’s Primary Extended Care locations.

And take note – scheduling your child’s sports physical this summer means that exam will cover your child for all sports during the following school year!

To schedule your student-athlete’s sports physical, please call your CPCMG pediatrician. If you’re not a CPCMG family, please call our Welcome Center to register your child at 858-502-1177. Please be aware that new patients must be scheduled for a Well Child visit.
