Frequently Asked Questions:

What if my child can’t make it to one of the two nights for physicals, will Fremont Health provide another night?
Unfortunately we can’t provide another night. We have over 50 volunteers and about 30 medical providers who volunteer their time so we can provide this free service to students and parents in the area communities.  Coordinating even the two dates we offer requires a lot of planning and time.

Is there an age limit for who can participate in a physical?
We don’t focus on age but instead the grade they are entering.  You have to be at least going into 9th grade and can be no older than a soon to be senior in high school.

Why are junior high age athletes and younger not included?
We don’t allow this age group because their physicals are geared towards younger athletes and it is important that they are seen by their primary care physician for the physical.  There are also immunizations that are typically required for junior high students, which we do not offer.   

Why is it so important to have the right school form and make sure it is signed by a parent?
Some schools have a different physical form than others so it is important to have the one your school is asking for.  Also it is important to be signed by a parent because the majority of kids are minors and have to have parental consent to participate in the physical.

How long will the pre-sports screens take?
Average time takes around 1 hour or less.  Parents are encouraged to wait in the lobby area for their child.
