Sports Physicals

Charles County Public Schools students who plan to try out for any school-sponsored interscholastic sports team are required to have a physical performed by a licensed physician.

A Charles County Public Schools physical form must be turned in to the school athletic director prior to the first day of practice. The first day of practice for fall sports is Aug. 14. No student is allowed to practice or try out for a team without a completed physical form signed and approved by a licensed physician. A physical is valid for one year. Parents and students are responsible for keeping physicals up-to-date.

Other forms needed before a student is permitted to try out are: authorization for participation in interscholastic athletics, emergency medical card, verification of insurance and a Statement of the Student-Parent Handbook. The school athletic directors or coaches provide these forms to all athletes.

The school system recommends that the student's primary care physician perform the required physical, as this physician knows the student and is familiar with the student's medical history. If a family physician is not available, the clinics listed below may be able to provide a sports physical. Call ahead to get specific costs and times.
