It’s hard to believe that summer is already wrapping up and school is right around the corner. With school starting this month, is your athlete prepared for the upcoming fall athletic season? Most schools and athletic programs require annual sports physicals prior to the first practice date outlined by the Colorado High School Activities Association (also known as CHSAA). For the upcoming fall season, CHSAA has changed their first practice date to Monday, August 12. While this is only the first practice date for some of the major teams and sports, it’s recommended that parents visit the chsaanow.com website for more dates and information.
What is a Sport Physical?
Let’s help each athlete stay safe and healthy this sport season! The best way to help review and monitor an athlete’s physical wellness and capabilities is through a sports physical exam. These annual exams assist coaches, staff, and parents by helping them ensure that athletes are fit and capable to perform in their desired sports/skills with minimum risk. During the physical exam medical staff review the athlete’s prior health records, their personal capabilities, and assess if there are any risks that need to be addressed prior to physical exertion. Ask your athlete’s school today about their sport physical policy!
