In efforts to increase safety and prevention in athletics, FISD is requiring ANNUAL physicals for all student-athletes. Annual screening of athletes is imperative because medical conditions can change from year to year and the development of subtle issues may be overlooked. The pre-participation exam is designed to help identify athletes that may be at risk for medical issues before he or she participates in a sport.
Physical can be obtained by your primary physician or orthopedic doctor. Mass sports physicals were offered by FISD in May. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Marissa Jones at email@example.com or 979.255.5409.
