Information on 2015-2016 Preparticipation Sport Physicals
Dear Parent(s) of Summit Academy High School Student Athletes,
The Utah High School Athletics Association (UHSAA) now requires that all student athletes have a pre-participation physical exameach calendar year.
Historically, many pre-participation physicals have been completed in a large group setting where quick, non-personal exams are done and paperwork signed. While this is commonly offered for convenience it is not necessarily the best medical approach.
Our Team and Our Approach to Physicals
Our medical team offers comprehensive sports medicine services with both orthopedic surgery and primary care physicians who specialize in sports medicine. We are able to provide an extensive breadth of medical care including management of sport related injuries and primary care needs for student athletes.
To provide the best medical care, we recommend your student athlete be seen for an annual preventative visit in a standard clinical setting. This allows adequate time to review medical history and perform a thorough physical exam. It also allows time to discuss any health problems your student athlete may have, such as asthma, acne, or other concerns. Many teenage student athletes prefer seeing a physician whose practice is focused on athletes. Improved coordination of care with your school and coaches is another great benefit.
Annual Preventative Visits are Free to You
If it has been more than a year since your student athlete’s last annual preventative visit, we recommend you schedule one. These are almost always covered 100% by insurance. As part of the visit we will complete your sports physical forms.
Limited Sports Physicals
While we recommend annual preventative visits, we do offer limited sports physicals. These visits are limited to sport related preventative screening but are adequate for the requirements of the sports physical paperwork. Presently, these are being provided for $25. Scenarios where a limited sports physical is acceptable:
