TUHSD Sports Physical
Steward Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center staff will be conducting PreParticipation Sports Physicals for the 2019-2020 school year starting this Spring. Physicals will be $15 cash or check. Checks can be made payable to Steward Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center. Every student planning to try-out for a school sport and every student going out for Marching Band will be required to have a physical prior to try-outs. These physicals will be good for the entire 2019-2020 school year! Permission forms can be picked up at the school's Athletic's Office.
In addition to Sports Physicals, the Steward Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center staff will have Baseline ImPACT testing available to take at the time of physicals. ImPACT is a computerized neurocognitive baseline test for concussions/head injuries. Every high-risk athlete is required to have a valid baseline test on file prior to try-out every school year. The baseline test will be good for the entire 2019-2020 school year. The Sports medicine staff will review all tests at the conclusion of physicals to determine validity. If invalid, student-athletes will be required to do a retest prior to beginning try-outs. This test provides baseline data to the Certified Athletic Trainers and Team Physicians to refer to if a concussion is sustained during the season, think of it as physical for the brain.
High-Risk Athletes that are required to have a valid baseline test on file prior to try-outs are Football, Cheerleading, Volleyball, Diving, Soccer, Basketball, Wrestling, Baseball, Softball, and Pole-vaulting.
