Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance and physicians/staff from Middle Tennessee Medical Center will again offer free pre-participation exams for prospective Rutherford County middle and high school student athletes on Saturday, April 29, 2017. To make this day go as smoothly as possible, please note the following:
- Exams will be at Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance, 1800 Medical Center Parkway, in Murfreesboro, not at each individual school.
- Please have the correct form and all required parent/guardian signatures filled out at the time of arrival.
- This will be the only opportunity for athletes participating in sports to receive these exams – no make-up exams will be done.
- Athletes are not required to attend these exams, but a physical is required for participation in sports.
- Please avoid any caffeine/energy drinks. Blood pressure will be taken and athlete may not be cleared.
- Athletes should dress in shorts/t-shirts to allow physicians to evaluate extremities as needed.
- Athletes must present all appropriate forms, completed and signed by parent/guardian. Athletes without completed and signed forms will not be eligible to receive an exam. Blank forms (History, Physical Exam, Clearance, and Parent Consent) can be found HERE. Please have all 6 pages filled out with all required parent/guardian signatures before the time of entrance.
- Contact information is listed below. Please do not contact TOA with questions about exams.
- Parents are welcome to accompany their children throughout the entire process.
- Exams will be complimentary; however, donations will be accepted. Proceeds will be used to purchase medical equipment used by the Rutherford County Schools Athletic Trainers.
- Please note that some medical problems detected during physical exam may require clearance from the athlete’s primary physician. Parents may wish to schedule a complete physical evaluation from their physician/pediatrician.
- Each student is responsible for delivery of forms to their coach – copies will not be available.
