CHEROKEE - Girard Medical Center will again be offering free sports physicals this year for junior high and high school student-athletes. The free sports physicals will be offered from 8 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 6.
While an appointment is necessary at the Arma location, no appointment is necessary at the Girard Medical Center locations in Cherokee, Frontenac and Girard but the service is first come, first serve.
The following forms must be completed and signed by a parent or guardian before the physical can be done: The KSHSAA Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation for 2017-18 (PPE) and the KSHSAA Concussion Form for 2017-18. Officials advise having the paperwork prepared ahead of time. These forms are available on the www.kshsaa.org website. Under KSHSAA Links visit "Physical Form" and "Concussion Guidelines & Educational Resources".
These physicals will be good for 2017 summer activities as well as the 2017-18 school year.
