A pre-participation sports physical from OrthoCincy is the first step in making sure an athlete is healthy and ready for the upcoming season. Sports physicals meet the requirements of the Indiana State Athletic Association to participate with interscholastic middle and high school sponsored sports programs.

Any athlete grades 6–12 must have a pre-participation physical and consent to be eligible for competition. This includes any students who transfer from in or out of state who wish to participate in sanctioned sports for the 2022-23 school year.

Sports physicals consist of two parts: a medical history and a physical examination. The goal of sports physicals is to evaluate an athlete's general health, current fitness level, risk of injury and physical well-being. Sports physicals help raise awareness of any issues that may interfere with your child’s ability to participate in a sport.

NOTE: A sports physical should not replace an annual wellness physical.
