The WIAA requires student athletes to complete a sports physical every other year.
During a physical, the physician will take your child's complete health history, perform an orthopedic screening, examine the heart and lungs, and make sure your child is at his or her best to compete.
In the year a physical is not required, an Alternate Year Athletic Permit Card must be signed by a parent or guardian and kept on file at your child's school. Physicals that take place before April 1 are only valid for the remainder of that school year and the following year.
If your child needs a physical this year, make an appointment well before the season starts. To make an appointment with Prevea Health, call (920) 496-4700. The forms you and your physician will need to complete and turn into your school can be found on the WIAA website.
