Sports physicals are required by a number of organizations, including camps, schools and community sports organizations, in order to ensure that students can safely participate in their activities. 

What to Expect

During a sports physical, the doctor will ask questions about your medical history, including illnesses, allergies or past injuries.

The doctor will also conduct a physical examination, checking height/weight, blood pressure, vision, etc. They may also ask questions about use of supplements, performance enhancers or use of drugs/alcohol.

Your doctor may also offer training advice, like stretching to avoid injuries.

Sports Physicals

Sports physicals are available throughout the year at the Marshall Sports Medicine Institute along with the Marshall Family Medicine and Marshall Pediatrics clinic locations listed below.

Please bring all necessary documentation to your appointment, including:

  • Camp, school or sports organization forms. The West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission (WVSSAC) and Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) has a physical form that must be filled out and signed by a parent or legal guardian for those playing school-sponsored sports in West Virginia and Ohio.
  • Proof of insurance, and
  • Immunization records (if the student does not see a Marshall Health provider for his or her primary care)

Sports physicals are offered at a discounted rate of $25.

Partnerships with Schools

The Marshall Sports Medicine Institute (MSMI) partners with a number of high schools and middle schools in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. As a result, free sports physical events are scheduled in late spring/early summer for students in these schools who are participating in school-sponsored sports.
