TUHSD Sports Physical

  • 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. Due to the pandemic, the AIA announced your 2019–2020 school physical would be valid for the 2020-2021 school year UNLESS the following applies:

    PHYSICALS*

    1. You sustained a concussion during or since the 2019–2020 season
    2. You were diagnosed with a NEW chronic medical issue, examples include but are not limited to: diabetes, asthma, heart issues
    3. You were diagnosed with COVID-19 or COVID like illness
    4. You had an injury last season that required you to have surgery or miss more than 2 weeks of participation
    5. The school you will be attending during the 2020–2021 season does NOT have your physical on file OR the physical was not completed on the AIA physical form

    *IF any of these items apply to your student, a new 2020-2021 physical will need to be obtained.

    • For your convenience, Banner Sports Medicine staff will be conducting Pre-Participation Sports Physicals for the 2020–2021 school year.
    • Physicals will be $25 flat fee. (See flyer)
    • If your student requires a new physical, please fill out the 2020–2021 Annual Pre-participation Physical Evaluation Form - PDF and bring it with you to your appointment so the physician can
      sign it.

    IMPACT TESTING

    In addition to Sports Physicals, IMPACT Testing is required for High-Risk Athletes. The sports that require IMPACT testing are Football, Cheerleading, Volleyball, Diving, Soccer, Basketball, Wrestling, Baseball, Softball, and Pole-vaulting.
    IMPACT testing is a computerized neurocognitive baseline test for concussion/head injuries. Every high-risk athlete is required to have a valid baseline test on file prior to try-out every school year. Due to the pandemic, the AIA has announced your 2019–2020 Baseline test will be valid unless you sustained a concussion in the 2019–2020 season or if you do not have an Impact test on file with the school you will be attending in the 2020–2021 school year.

    The Sports Medicine staff will review all tests to determine validity. If invalid, student-athletes will be required to do a retest prior to the beginning of 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 a physical for the brain. Check with your school’s athletic office for dates and times of testing.
