Free Annual Sports Physicals Clinic

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

5 pm to 7 pm

The free Sports Physical Clinic will be held in the Outpatient Clinic at Boundary Community Hospital on Tuesday, July 28 starting at 5 pm. Park and enter at the Outpatient Services Lobby off Comanche Street. A Parent Must Be Present. Parking available in the Outpatient Services lot off Comanche Street.

For everyone’s safety, screenings will occur in a designated area of the Outpatient Services parking lot and the lobby. For parent convenience, families will be screened together. Sign in at the Coaches Table outside and receive a number for the family. Proceed through the outside screening stations, in order, then wait for your number to come up to enter for the inside screening stations and Provider physical exam. Numbers will be on display on monitors near the Outpatient Services lobby door to limit the amount of families in the lobby at one time. Families must be signed in before 6:30 pm in order to complete the process.

Outside screenings include height, weight, vital signs, and an evaluation of neuromusculoskeletal function including range of motion, strength, balance and functional mobility. Inside screenings include urine test, vision and a physical exam and review of the screening results by a physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner. The completed forms are reviewed for completeness and then submitted to the coaches from Boundary County School District for inclusion in school records.

So if you have students in grades 7, 9, or 11 who plan to participate in sports, including cheerleading, in the upcoming school year, then you will want to take advantage of this free event. According to the Idaho High School Activities Association, these students will need to have a physical before the first practice starts. This also applies to those students that are new to the sports program who did not have a physical last year, even if in grades 8, 10 and 12.

Make plans now to take part in the Free Sports Physical Clinic provided by Boundary Community Hospital and Boundary Community Clinics, right here in Bonners Ferry.
