The MSHSL forms will be provided at check-in or can be downloaded and completed prior to your arrival. We will also accept student athletes from Wisconsin (WIAA).
Student athletes are encouraged to bring immunization records for a more comprehensive exam. If your school uses Privit Software you will need to bring a printed copy of your completed health history.
Contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions.
|These physicals are pre-participation exams (PPE) strictly intended to meet MSHSL requirements. These are used to screen for physical or medical conditions that might put the student athlete at risk for participation. The PPE does NOT replace your annual checkup or child wellness exam with your primary care provider for immunizations and important age appropriate health guidance. If the student athlete is currently under medical care or requires further follow-up prior to clearance for athletic participation, the student athlete will be referred to the appropriate medical provider.|
|A parent or guardian is required to accompany their student athlete if under the age of 18 years.|
|Student athletes should wear loose fitting clothing or shorts that will allow access to knees/ankles and proper movement during the PPE.|
Additional Testing Available On-Site During Your Sports Physicals
We will be offering additional optional testing for you to take part in during your PPE. Complete the form below to reserve your time.
ImPACT Baseline Testing – $5 (normal rate is $20)
ImPACT is often referred to as “the concussion test” however, the diagnosis of concussion is based on a thorough medical history and exam. The TRIA Sport Concussion Team evaluates all aspects of recovery before return-to-play.
The ImPACT Baseline test is a computerized test that measures brain functioning, including processing speed, reaction time, verbal and visual memory. Ideally this test is completed prior to the start of a sport season or before an injury occurs so post-injury testing can be compared to baseline. This test is a tool that can aid the medical team in concussion management. The ImPACT test takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Movement Screening – Free
TRIA Athletic Trainers will be offering free movement screens for student athletes. Results are used to identify asymmetries, imbalances or weakness in movement patterns that could identify potential risk for injury. Participants will receive a home exercise program specific to their results. Screenings will take about 10 minutes to complete.
