Free Sports Physicals Available for Local High School Students

May 18, 2022

Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist is once again holding free sports physicals for area student-athletes who attend high schools that are part of the health system’s Athletic Training Outreach Program.

Wake Forest Baptist’s sports medicine physicians will conduct the physicals for student-athletes – including incoming freshmen – who plan to participate in any sport during the upcoming school year.

Dates and times are below but student-athletes should check with their athletic director for specifics.

“We are thrilled to once again be able to offer these sports physicals to high school student-athletes at three events across our region,” said Christopher Ina, Wake Forest Baptist’s manager of athletic training services. “Pre-participation physicals can identify health issues and are an important part of our efforts to keep young athletes healthy and safe.”

In 2019, Wake Forest Baptist provided free sports physicals to more than 365 student-athletes and organizers expect to see more than 500 this year. Events were not held the past two years, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Atrium Health – including Wake Forest Baptist – has one of the largest athletic training programs in the country, serving athletes from more than 100 high schools and professional and collegiate teams.
