The Preparticipation Sports Physical (PPE)

Last year nearly 8 million students participated in high school athletics, many of which were required to complete a Preparticipation Physical Exam (PPE) before beginning their season. While the aim of the PPE is to determine if a child is physically able to safely participate in a sport, it also examines many areas of your child’s wellbeing and may detect conditions that would otherwise go unnoticed. As fall tryout season approaches make sure you and those around know the importance of a PPE and that your student completes one.*
