Brazosport Regional to Host Sports Physicals for BISD Students
Brazosport Regional Health System is hosting sports physicals for all BISD students on Friday, May 30th at Hopper Field from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Sports physicals are essential for athletes to determine whether it is safe for them to participate in a particular sport.
The state of Texas requires all kids and teens to have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season. The two main elements of the physical are the medical history and physical exam. The goals of the sports physicals are to evaluate an athlete’s general health, current fitness level, risk of injury, and physical well-being.
The physical exam will be completed by medical professionals from Brazosport Regional including certified family nurse practitioners Debra Crook and Jennifer Kucera, alongside Dr. Charles Vega, an orthopaedic surgeon specialized in sports medicine.
The sport physical cost during the event on May 30th are just $10 and no appointment is needed. It is asked that parents accompany their athlete to sign the consent forms. For additional information about sports physicals, please call Gary Holler at 979-230-7000, ext. 28218 or Elizabeth Wilson at 979-730-7000, ext. 12359.
