Fremont Area Medical Center (FAMC) will provide free basic sports screens required prior to sports participation for area high school athletes, as accepted and suggested by the Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA).
Medical Center staff and local healthcare providers will conduct the exams at no charge to the student-athletes.
This year's event will be held on Tuesday, June 4, and Wednesday, June 5, at FAMC’s Rehab Department, located on the first floor of the Medical Center.
During the screens, a team of healthcare professionals, which consists of physicians, physician’s assistants, physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, certified athletic trainers, registered nurses and other medical volunteers, look for health problems and risks of re-injury from previous injuries. Screenings generally take around one hour or less, and parents are encouraged to wait in the lobby area for their child.
Athletes are asked to arrive at their school’s designated time. Students are required to bring their physical release form, which must be signed by a parent.
