Sports Physical and Preparticipation Physical Evaluations
Not sure whether you or your kid is more excited to learn a sport or to go on this year’s summer camp? Before either of you get too excited, make sure you have your paperwork in order. Any number of little leagues, intramural sports, summer camps, and activity-based programs may require a preparticipation physical evaluation (PPE). With a simple, standardized form in which participants provide much of their own medical history, we can complete most sports physicals for only $35.
The Pre-participation Sports Physical
The Sports Physical has four parts:
- History Form: The first part of the PPE asks you to provide some biographical information and a basic medical history. (Hablas español? Diligencie este formulario.)
- Supplemental History/Special Needs Form: The second part of the form asks about any disabilities, limitations, and other special medical conditions. Ideally, you’ll want to fill out these first two pages before visiting the doctor’s office.
- Physical Exam Form: Here, you can see the form the doctor will fill out as part of the physical examination.
- Clearance Form: The last part is like a results page. More than a pass/fail, you or your kid may be cleared for all sports without restriction or cleared but with recommendations for a follow-up, cleared for certain sports, not cleared but worth further evaluation, or not cleared for any sports.
