Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) physicals are available at the Clinic at Riverside on July 18 and July 26 for students wanting to participate in a high school sport. These physicals will be available from 2:00 to 5:30 pm and are free of charge. Everyone who signs in by 5:00 pm will receive a free physical. If students come without their parents, they must bring a Consent for Treatment Release signed by their parents. These forms are available at RuskHospital.org/forms.
The WIAA requires student athletes to complete a sports physical every other year. During a physical, a provider will examine the heart, lungs, bones, joints and muscles while taking into account your child’s health history to ensure your child is at his or her best to participate in high school sports.
