    Physical:
    If your physical is expiring soon or you do not have one, please be aware that every kid must have a current physical to participate.  If your physical expired recently or expiring soon, you need to get a new one completed and turned in.

    Option 1:
    JPS school-based clinic at Western Hills Elementary - they can use Medicare/Medicaid to get the physical.  If they are undocumented or have no insurance, they can get on a program with JPS to get healthcare.  They need to call and set an appointment to get the physical done (it isn't a walk-in clinic).  (817) 702-4881

    Option 2:
    Texas Medical Institute - a walk-in clinic located at 6789 Camp Bowie Blvd. (817) 731-2102.  They have been doing sports physicals for $20 this semester.  Have parents call to confirm but this is a good place to go near here.

Concussion Baseline Requirement

  • All Athletes MUST get marked by the Athletic Trainer for having a valid score on the Concussion Baseline before participating in off-season or in-season Athletic activity.

         - Football athletes must have a valid baseline before starting any contact

         - Any other sport starting in early August before the first day of classes must have a valid baseline before the first scrimmage for that sport

         - Any sport starting off-season Athletics of after the first day of classes must have a valid baseline before starting any activity

    This baseline will be completed online under the supervision of the student's coach or the Athletic Trainer. The baseline cannot be completed at home.

     

    The purpose of the Baseline is to have a record of each athlete's normal cognitive brain function so that, if a student suffers a concussion, they can repeat the assessment when symptom-free to make sure they are within 5% of function prior to injury.
