Sports Physicals Available for Student Athletes

South Lake Tahoe, CA – Parents can prepare their active children for the next school year by scheduling an annual preventative exam and pre-participation sports physical. An annual preventative exam and sports physical are available by appointment at Barton Family Medicine and Barton Community Health Center. Local student athletes can also receive a free sports physical on Monday, June 5 at South Tahoe High School.
 
All high school, middle school, and Pop Warner athletes from South Tahoe area are eligible to attend the June 5 event. Physicals are scheduled at 5:30 p.m. for South Tahoe athletes, 6:00 p.m. for Pop Warner football players, and 6:30 p.m. for Whittell athletes.  
 
Students should dress in gym attire and bring their completed (and signed) medical history forms. Forms may be picked up in each school’s front office or through the student’s Pop Warner football coach. A parent or guardian must be present at the physical.
 
These summer sports physicals are generously provided by physicians and medical staff from Barton Health and the Tahoe Center for Orthopedics. Contact Sue McLaughlin in Barton Public Relations at 530.543.5615 for more information.
 
The free sports physical does not replace an annual preventative exam.
