An IU Health Tipton Hospital Release

Sports Physicals for Student Athletes Presented by Indiana University Health Tipton Hospital

The Sports Medicine Program at Indiana University Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine will offer this year’s sports physicals to student athletes on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 from 5 pm - 8 pm. (No admittance before 4:30 pm) This service is open to all students entering 6th grade through 12th grade for the 2013-2014 school-year. The cost is $20. A portion of the proceeds goes to the schools’ athletic departments for athletes of Tri-Central Community Schools and Tipton Community Schools. Athletes must pick up an IHSAA Physical Form from their school’s athletic office. The forms must be filled out and signed by a parent and the student. For the schools’ records, insurance information should be included.

Athletes should park in the south parking lot of IU Health Tipton Hospital and follow the directional signage to the side door near the south lobby entrance. The physicals will start and end in the south lobby. Participants will receive a comprehensive, multi-station exam that meets all IHSAA requirements. These physicals are possible thanks to the efforts of approximately 40 volunteers from the hospital, physician community and school corporations.

To assure that all students get through by 8 pm, please do not arrive any later than 7:30 pm. Also, in an attempt to minimize waiting, we recommend that you observe the following schedule:               

  • Next year’s 6th & 7th grade students please arrive at 5 pm
  • Next year’s 8th & 9th grade students please arrive at 6 pm
  • Next year’s 10th & 11th grade students please arrive at 7 pm
  • Next year’s 12th grade students, please arrive at 7:30 pm

Please feel free to contact IU Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine with any questions you may have prior to the sports physicals by calling 765.675.2663.
