Teen Sports Physicals: What to Expect

According to the Tennessee State Board of Education, 78 percent of teens get their only physical examinations during sports physicals.


Sports physicals, also known as pre-participation sports physical examinations, are endorsed by the National Federation of State High School Associations and required by most states before your teen is allowed to participate in a new sport or new sport season. Even when not specifically required, it's just sound practice to be sure your teen is in good physical condition before suiting up, both for their safety and your peace of mind.
