AdventHealth physicians and care teams will again provide physicals for select students in Volusia County public middle and high schools at Daytona International Speedway.
The four-day event, scheduled April 12-15, is open to Volusia County schools student athletes and cheerleaders, as well as ROTC, band members and firefighting academy students.
All groups, with the exception of band, require a physical evaluation for participation.
Band members are welcome, but not obligated to receive a physical.
For the last four years, AdventHealth has offered free sports physicals to all Volusia County student athletes as part of their partnership with the school district.
“We are incredibly grateful for the strong partnership we have with AdventHealth,” VCS Superintendent Dr. Carmen Balgobin said. “AdventHealth continues to ensure that our students are healthy and whole by providing a variety of vital health services, such as these free physicals.”
Last year, more than 1,500 Volusia County students participated in the free sports physicals, which also include heart screenings. These heart screenings can be critical as sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death among high school athletes.
Appointments are required and can be made online until April 5. To make an appointment, visit VCSSportsPhysicals.com.
