FHN, FHS offering sports physical clinics
The physicals will be done on the high school campus to ensure social distancing.
FREEPORT, Ill. (WIFR) - FHN and Freeport High School have collaborated to create a plan for sports physicals for the 2020-21 season.
The physicals will be done on the high school campus to ensure social distancing within the gymnasium while providing a safe environment for participants due to COVID-19 concerns, according to FHN.
If interested, those attending should do so during the designated time for your student’s intended sport, which is listed below. Only the athlete and a legal guardian are permitted in the building. No siblings or individuals not receiving a physical will be allowed entry.
All people entering the school must wear a mask at all times. Participants should enter through the south main gym doors on Empire; exit will be through the west parking lot by the grass field. Please park in the west parking area; students will be entering the Empire Street side of the school and exiting in the west lot, according to FHN.
Physicals cost $20 upon registration via cash or check only (ATM on site if needed); as in previous years, FHN donates this fee back to the school. The IHSA exam form and FHN consent form can be downloaded at www.fhn.org/sportsphysicals. All forms must be filled out and signed prior to arriving for the physical.
