BARRON, Wis. — Mayo Clinic Health System – Northland is offering Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association sports physicals and immunization clinics to area student athletes who are entering grades seven through 12.
Exams are required by the WIAA for participation in extracurricular school sports. During the clinics, student athletes receive comprehensive WIAA sports physicals by a medical provider and an assessment by a Rehabilitation Services staff member. Physicals cost $35 during these clinics only; cash payment is required on the day of service. WIAA sports physical proceeds help support complimentary in-school athletic training services and selected game coverage for schools that participate in the medical center’s Sports Medicine program.
All students, whether coming for a sports physical or not, are invited to update their chickenpox, HPV, meningococcal and Tdap immunizations at the same time for an additional fee. Participants who receive immunizations have the option to bill their insurance.
Clinics available include:
- Barron: 2 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, July 28 and Aug. 4, 1222 E. Woodland Ave.
- Cameron: 2 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 29, 2049 15th Ave.

- Rice Lake: 2 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 28, Thursday, July 30, and Tuesday, Aug. 4, 331 S. Main St.
The clinics are walk-in only; no appointments will be scheduled. Athletes are asked to bring a completed WIAA card from their high school (contact the high school office). A parent or guardian must accompany each student younger than 18 years old.
If athletes are unable to attend one of these dates or if their insurance requires a different type of exam, they can schedule an appointment on another date at the regular physical exam rate.
