Making sure your athlete is OK to play is the first step in getting ready for the big game.

Here’s everything you need to know about sports and camp physicals:

What is a sports physical?

Sports physical examinations can help detect some health problems that could interfere with performance, and help ensure the safety of your child while playing sports.

Why is a sports physical necessary?

During the sports physical exam, the provider will review your child or teen’s medical history and look for conditions or injuries that could potentially make it unsafe to participate in sports. This is a great opportunity to discuss with the provider ways your athlete may be prone to injury so they may suggest tips to avoid future issues.

Who needs a sports physical?

South Carolina requires all student athletes to complete a sports physical before participating in school-sanctioned sports. Additionally, most recreational groups, such as Boy Scouts of America, require a physical to attend and participate.

What should I bring for a sports physical?

Be sure to have your identification and sports or camp physical form when you come in. This form will likely include your child’s health history, certifications, consents and signatures. We recommend bringing a list of medications your child is taking, any surgeries or injuries, or other illnesses we may need to be aware of in order to complete the examination.

When should I get a sports physical?

Sports physical examinations should be completed yearly. We recommend having the physical completed a few weeks before the season begins so there will be plenty of time to follow-up if necessary.
