All current Woodlawn athletes will be able to receive free physicals for the 2017 – 2018 school year on Tuesday, April 25, 2017. The Woodlawn Athletic Training Staff along with their community partners from Baton Rouge General Family Medicine / Sports Medicine Residency Program, Baton Rouge Orthopedic and Sports Medicine, and Peak Physical Therapy will provide physical exams on all Woodlawn athletes.
Each year, athletes are required to provide up to date medical history information and emergency contact information, as well as insurance information. The emergency contact and insurance information are then transferred to a web-based injury tracking database.
“Having the emergency contact information and insurance information available on the web guarantees that coaches and staff of Woodlawn High Athletics have immediate access to this information if needed in an emergency,” stated Woodlawn Athletic Trainer Randy Gonzales.
Athletes will be given packets at school and will need to return those packets to their head coach or Coach Gonzales prior to leaving for Spring Break on April 13th. Athletes will have height, weight and vital signs taken during the day on April 25th or starting at 3:00 pm. The physicians will begin physicals at 4:00 pm.
Incoming Freshman athletes will also be able to receive physicals on this day. Parent can download the needed forms or come by the front office and pick-up a packet. Those packets should also be returned to the front office and made to the attention of Coach Gonzales.
Any questions concerning physicals please contact Coach Gonzales at [email protected] for additional information.
