All interested first and third year (freshman and junior) high school sports athletes are invited to take part in Tuality Sports Medicine Physical Nights on Thursday, Aug. 9 and Tuesday, Aug. 14 at Liberty High School. The physicals are available to students who attend Hillsboro, Liberty, Century, Glencoe and Forest Grove high schools.

A current sports physical is required by the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA.) Exams will start at 6 p.m., and each school will have a designated time. The schedule is: Forest Grove, 6 p.m.; Century, 6:20 p.m., Hilhi, 6:40 p.m., Glencoe, 7 p.m., Liberty, 7:20 p.m. The schedule will repeat on Tuesday, Aug. 14.

Volunteer doctors will conduct the physicals, assisted by Tuality’s sports medicine staff and other volunteers. Prospective athletes need to bring $20 in cash (proceeds go to each school’s sports medicine program), and OSAA paperwork signed by a parent. The paperwork is available online at www.osaa.org by clicking the parents/student button, or from your high school athletic office. Athletes should wear shorts and a T-shirt; parents are welcome.

If athletes or parents have questions about the physical exams, please call 503-681-4238 for more information.
