To compete on a school-sponsored team, a sports physical form must be completed each year.  This form was developed with the assistance of the Committee on Sports Medicine of the Iowa Medical Society and has been approved for use by the Iowa Department of Education, Iowa High School Athletic Association, and Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union.  The form must be completed and signed by a licensed physician, osteopathic physician, osteopath, advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP), physician assistant, or qualified doctor of chiropractic, stating the student-athlete may safely engage in athletic competition.

Due to continued precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, all student athletes will be required to wear a mask in Shenandoah Medical Center clinics and throughout the examination.  If student athletes do not have a mask of their own, they will be provided one upon entering the clinic.

For more information about the free sports physicals, please call Shenandoah Medical Center at (712) 246-7400.
