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.
2021 PHYSICALS DAY
Baton Rouge Soccer Club requires physicals for the competitive program for players to participate in the upcoming 2021-2022 season. Typically, BRSC hosts a physical day so that players have an opportunity to receive a free physical to help ensure as many athletes as possible get their physical completed before the 2021-2022 season. This year Baton Rouge Soccer Club will not host a physical day. Instead, the club is attending the BROC Foundation Physical Day that they are hosting on May 15th, 2021. Physicals are still required by the club and it is expected that our players who wish to receive a free physical that normally attend our physical day, please register for the BROC Foundation Physical day on May 15th. Time slots for BRSC players will be provided by BROC closer to May 15th. We ask that you complete this registration as soon as possible.

We like to see our athletes healthy and ready to play! This year, we are launching a new community-wide event that provides free physicals for middle school & high school athletes in Baton Rouge & surrounding areas. We will be hosting this at our main BROC location at 8080 Bluebonnet on the morning of Saturday, May 15th from 7 AM to12 PM. All physicals will be provided by licensed medical doctors and credentialed support staff. We look forward to this being a fun and cohesive community event with support from local organizations, where we can offer educational information, food, music, t-shirts & swag bags.
