MANSFIELD – Students planning to participate in high school sports this fall can take advantage of convenient sports physicals at Akron Children’s Hospital’s Urgent Care location in Mansfield this summer.
Sports physicals, required for high school student athletes by the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA), are available through Oct. 30. Appointments are available Mondays through Fridays from 3 to 6:30 p.m. at the Mansfield Urgent Care, 1029 S. Trimble Road. For an appointment, call 419-521-2950.
Sports physicals cost $45 per student-athlete, and payment by credit or debit card is due at the time of service. Insurance will not be billed.
Parents should also keep the following in mind:
• These appointments are for sports physicals only – not camp or pre-employment physicals or immunizations.
• Sports physicals are not meant to replace annual well visits, which are recommended for all ages.
• All OHSAA forms must be completed and printed prior to arrival, or the appointment will be rescheduled. Forms are available from coaches and school athletic departments or online.
• Completion of a physical doesn’t guarantee clearance for sports participation.
• Teens who wear glasses or contact lenses should bring them to their appointment.
• Patients under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
