Many young athletes are required to complete a sports physical in order to participate. These exams are designed to keep your young athlete playing his or her best and to catch potentially life-threatening health problems that can be made worse by sports activity.

What many parents do not know is that an Annual Well Child Exam or “Check-up” includes a sports physical and the completion of any needed paperwork. When this exam is performed at the pediatrician’s office, it is valid for any forms needed for the next 12 months.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends asking your pediatrician to do your child’s sports physical when you schedule your child’s next routine well-child visit. This is more convenient than scheduling two appointments and has other advantages as well such as:

• Your child’s medical records and health history will be complete and up to date.
• Pediatricians are trained to identify and treat medical and bone/joint problems that are commonly seen in children
and adolescents who play sports or are physically active.
• Your pediatrician also can ensure your child is caught up on immunizations and can discuss any concerns in a confidential setting.

In addition, while many insurances do not cover sports physicals for school, insurance does cover one annual well-child visit. Check with your insurer if you have any questions.


Schedule ahead of season
UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s
recommends scheduling Well Child Exam annually – and at least eight weeks before the start of the season, which allows time to follow up on
any concerns that might arise.
