Sports Physical Clinic set

A Sports Physical Clinic will be held 8 a.m.- 1 p.m. July 30 at Homer Medical Clinic. No appointments are offered, however, students are asked to stagger arrival according to the following schedule: last names starting with A-E arrive at 8 a.m.; last names starting with F-J should arrive at 9 a.m.; last names starting with K-O should arrive at 10 a.m.; last names starting with P-T should arrive at 11 a.m. and last names starting with U-Z should arrive at noon.

A physical screening is required by the Alaska School Activities Association for high school students participating in sports and activities. The health care providers in the community are volunteering their time to provide the exams, and use this to raise funds for the Homer High School Booster Club. A $10 donation is requested, made payable to the Booster Club, but no one will be turned away for lack of money.

To save time, participants are asked to complete page one of the two-page exam form prior to presenting at the clinic. The form can be found at sphosp.org or by calling 235-0397 to have a form faxed or mailed.

Students must bring or wear loose fitting shorts for the screening.
