Provided by Riverview Health
High school and middle school athletes:
Monday, May 23
Sheridan High School
All candidates for Sheridan Schools athletic teams (grades 6–12) during the 2016–2017 school year must complete a physical examination performed by a licensed medical doctor. The examination must take place—and the doctor’s signature must be dated—after April 1, 2016. Sports physical forms are available at Sheridan Middle School and at the Sheridan High School athletic department and on the Sheridan High School Athletics website (sheridanathletics.net) under the forms tab or click on the link at the bottom of this page. In order for a student-athlete to be eligible for any sport, a completed sports physical form must be returned to the appropriate athletic office prior to the first practice.
Sports physical examinations may be completed by a pediatrician or family physician of your choice. In addition, through a partnership with Riverview Health, we’re able to provide physical examinations for prospective Sheridan Schools student athletes at a cost of $25. Please note these will be the only student athlete physical examinations offered through Sheridan Schools for the 2016-2017 school year. In addition, Riverview Health is offering an optional cardiac screening for student-athletes. This screening evaluates the potential risk of sudden death from cardiac-related abnormalities. The test consists of an electrocardiogram and an echocardiogram and takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. This screening is offered at a cost of $30. This screening is available at Riverview Health Heart & Vascular. Please call Riverview Health Central Scheduling at 317.776.7247 to make an appointment.
In order to take advantage of this opportunity, students and parents must complete the medical history portion of the exam form prior to attending the sports physical. Both student and parent signatures are required on the medical history portion in order to participate in the physical exam. Please note: If you wear glasses or contacts, you must bring them to the exam. It is also helpful if you wear loose-fitting clothes. Girls, please wear a sports bra.
For your convenience, online registration and payment is available for sports physicals. Please visit riverview.org/sportsphysicals. Once you complete the registration form, you will receive a receipt via email. Please print this receipt and bring it with you to the screening as proof-of-payment. Visa and MasterCard are accepted.
You may also register and pay for your physical exam on-site. Cash or check will be accepted. Please make checks payable to Riverview Health.
