Preparing for the return to school and specifically high school sports has never been more complicated. With the COVID19 pandemic, there are so many questions and uncertainties.
But there is one thing that will help both parents and high school athletes. That is staying active and participating in athletics.
The high school fall sports season is quickly arriving. The better prepared you and your high school athletes are the easier the transition to school will be. Every year, parents wait to the last minute to schedule their child’s sports physical for their high school athlete in Grand Junction, Palisade and Fruita. Of all years, 2020 is the year to be well prepared.
Medical clinics currently are not allowed to have waiting areas. Therefore everything is by appointment only and everything needs to be very structured and scheduled. Furthermore, there are limited appointments available.
The best thing to do is to schedule your sports physical early, complete the necessary documentation and have them evaluated by the provider. If for any reason there is a need for additional tests, making sure your high school athlete is seen sooner than later will make things smoother on everyone. It’ll make your life easier. Your child’s life will be easier. The coaches will be happy too.
The last thing you want is for an issue to come up on their sports physical that needs additional evaluation and the specialist your high school athlete sees has a waiting list.
