Did you know a school sports physical, isn’t just for a child trying out for a sport at their school? While it’s true most schools require a sports physical in order to try out for sports, there are numerous physical activities that a sports physical can be useful in determining whether or not your child is in healthy enough condition to participate in.

A school sports physical can be an important tool to uncover such conditions.
