Sports Physicals

Alaska requires children and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season. A sports physical helps determine if it's safe for you or your child to participate in a particular sport. A sports physical screens for many things including:


  • Serious illnesses among other family members
  • Illnesses you had when you were younger or may have now, such as asthma, diabetes, or epilepsy
  • Previous hospitalizations and surgeries
  • Allergies (think insect stings on the playing field, etc.)
  • Past injuries (including concussions, sprains, or bone fractures)
