Sports Physical Exams:
All students participating in district-sponsored sports teams (middle and high schools) must have a sports physical on file in the school office. Sports physicals are required every two years with a yearly update signed by the students parent or guardian. The Oregon School Athletic Association (OSAA) requires that sports physicals are only accepted from a licensed physician, licensed naturopathic physician, licensed physician assistant, certified nurse practitioner or a licensed chiropractic physician who has clinical training and experience in detecting cardiopulmonary disease and defect. The physical MUST be completed before the student begins practice.
Sports physicals are available through the clinic by appointment only. Click here to view or download the form in English or in Spanish. The Springfield Schools Health Center may be able to bill Trillium Insurance, however the initial examination fee for private insurance is $50.00. Contact your school athletic director for information on financial assistance that is available to help cover this cost.
