The cost for the screening will be $20 per student with all proceeds to benefit the participant’s school of choice. Insurance will not be filed and immunizations will be not offered during this time. A parent or guardian must be present at the time of the screening.
“Sports physicals, though not as complete as the annual physical examination recommended for all children and adolescents, are a convenient and inexpensive way for many young athletes to meet the requirements of the Minnesota State High School League and Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association for participation in high school athletics,” comments Paul Irwin, a physical therapist at Mayo Clinic Health System in Red Wing.
