Getting Your Child Ready for Sports

Sports Physicals

Anderson Hills Pediatrics is committed to preparing your child for participation in sports and athletic programs. Your child’s annual check-up meets all requirements of the sports physicals that athletic leagues and schools need. As part of your child’s check-up, the pediatrician will identify any issues that may cause injury or be of concern during the season.

The American Academy of Pediatrics and our pediatricians recommend that your child receives their annual check-up from their pediatrician. We do not recommend that your child receive a sports physical from a mass screening at school, urgent care, or a pharmacy clinic where medical and immunization records are unavailable. These physicals do not include an evaluation of your child’s overall health. If an abnormal health condition is identified, your child likely will have to visit their primary pediatrician, which may delay sports participation.

Sports Forms

Anderson Hills Pediatrics has an increased demand for forms to complete during summer. We always want this process to go smoothly for you and your family.

Various sports associations and schools require participation forms. Forms can vary by school district and organization. We encourage you to confirm what forms are needed by your child’s school or athletic league.

If it has been less than 13 months since your child’s last check-up, we can complete the form based on their previous visit without additional appointments. However, the form will expire 13 months following your child’s last check-up.

To ensure the accuracy of the forms we complete, we request that the form’s parent or child portions be completed before submission. Also, please be sure to sign all fields and submit all pages.

Your child’s primary pediatrician will need to complete the form. If your primary care physician is out of the office, we will have to wait until they are back in the office to sign the form. The standard form turnaround is 3 to 4 business days to account for this. If you need a form completed more quickly, we will do so in 1 to 2 business days for $5.00.


We look forward to helping you and your child prepare for their upcoming athletic and sporting events.
