St. Mary’s Hospital & Clinics will offer Sports Physicals in their Cottonwood Medical Clinic on Thursday, June 9th and their Nezperce Medical Clinic on Monday, June 6th. The Kamiah Medical Clinic will offer Sports Physicals on Wednesday, June 8th.
Check in time at all clinics will be from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. Appointments are not necessary.
“We can offer individual sports physicals at any time, but we always set aside this particular time so we can offer them at the reduced rate of $25 and return $15 to the schools for use in their athletic programs,” said Jeanette Gorman, SMHC Community Relations Coordinator. “The students will need the completed ‘Health Examination and Consent’ form signed by a health provider before they can begin practicing in the fall. Now is the time to have the physical completed, rather than waiting until the late summer or fall.”
Students entering the 7th, 9th and 11th grade and all transfer students must have a completed sports physical form on file with the school prior to their team’s first practice.
Students should bring the Health Examination and Consent form completed on the front side and signed by a parent or guardian. They should also bring their immunization records and a completed consent for immunization form signed by a parent or guardian. Both forms are available from the clinics and the schools. Immunizations will be provided at no charge during the scheduled Sports Physical clinics. A $45 charge will be assessed if students have their physical at another time.
Students should wear shorts and a T-shirt or tank top. For more information call the Cottonwood Clinic, 962-3267, the Kamiah Clinic, 935-2585 or the Nezperce Clinic, 937-2496.
