Is a Spring Sports Physical Important? No matter what sport your child participates in this spring, all student-athletes need to have a sports physical complete before they begin to play. A sports physical can help ensure your athlete is in good health (both mentally and physically) before participating so that he or she can stay safe while on the field.
