Care Plus Family providers are qualified to perform sports physicals for kids and teens. Our providers will review your child’s medical history, conduct an exam and recommend additional tests and diagnosis if necessary. Following the session, your Care Plus provider will fill in the required medical forms for the athlete.

Also called pre-participation physical examinations (PPE), sports physicals are usually a part of registering youths for participation in a sport. Organizers generally require an evaluation for children to participate, with regulations varying according to the rules of the state, school or a sport’s governing body. A PPE helps to assure that the athlete is healthy and physically ready for their chosen activity such as baseball, football,Cheerleading, Volleyball, Tennis,swimming, martial arts, soccer or track. Before registering, check with the organizers about their eligibility requirements. The goal of sports physicals is to help minimize the risk of injury to your child while participating in sports activities.”
