Physicals are a required component for athletes who wish to participate in competitive sports. They help:
- Screen for diseases
- Assess the risk of future medical problems
- Encourage a healthy lifestyle
- Maintain up-to-date vaccinations
Pre-participation examinations (PPE) are required to play in BRSC's Competitive Program. Physicals must be turned in by the specified date provided by BRSC staff. Once a year, BRSC conducts an annual pre-participation exam/physical day (PPE Day) in July for free for all competitive players. The free PPE a service by BROC & BRSC to assist athletes who cannot complete their physical through their primary care physician, do not have a physician or do not have insurance. Physicals performed by a player’s primary care physician or urgent care facility must have their physical form(s) turned into the Director of Sports Medicine, Santana Ruíz, by the BRSC PPE date. Physicals must be turned in by the specified time provided by BRSC staff. We will post the 2020 PPE day in May.
If you are new to the competitive program, you must bring a copy of your birth certificate to the PPE day.
Physicals will be free of charge. Parents/Guardians or athletes MUST bring the BRSC Pre-Participation Examination (PPE) form FILLED OUT to their team's designated physicals time. Due to time constraints, if the PPE form complete, that athlete will be put at the back of the line. The player's physical will take place when there is available time/staff.
2020 PHYSICALS DAY
Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, BRSC will not hold a Physicals Day for the 2020/21 Competitive Program. All players are encouraged to have physicals conducted by his or her primary physician. Should a player be unable to see a physician to set up a physical, players can contact Santana Ruiz to have a free physical from BROC.
