Here's a cheap way to knock out a requirement for athletic tweens and teens across the Triangle.
Duke Health will be offering $10 sports physicals to tween and teen athletes, in grades six and up, who need them. The physicals will be offered only from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., May 16, at the James R. Urbaniak, MD, Sports Sciences Institute on the Center for Living Campus in Durham. Optional concussion baseline testing also will be offered.
The physicals are designed for any athlete who might plan on working out with the middle or high school team this summer, participate in a summer sport or try out for a sport any time in the upcoming school year. Before they participate, you'll need to make sure those forms are updated. Now is a great time to get it done.
You'll need to bring $10 cash to get a physical. Free parking is available next to the building.
Student athletes in sixth grade and up should arrive with the medical history portion of the physical form completed and signed by parent or guardian. You can get the form from a school's athletic trainer or on Duke's website, which has some more information about the event.
