CHESTERTON | The Chesterton High School Athletic Department is sponsoring physicals for high school students from 6 to 8 p.m. June 10 and 11 in the Athletic Department.
Local physicians will be conducting a comprehensive physical exam including a musculoskeletal evaluation. Any physical given after April 1 will be acceptable for the 2014-15 school year according to IHSAA guidelines. In addition, all athletes must have a physical on file in the Athletic Office prior to any summer workouts with their respective team. This includes attending summer camps with a CHS team. All incoming freshman are included in this requirement.
Physical forms can be obtained at the CHS main office prior to these evenings, but they will also be available at check-in. Any athlete under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult/guardian and all required portions of the physical form must be signed by both parents for it to be valid. Athletes are asked to wear shorts and t-shirt for the musculoskeletal exam and should be wearing their contact lenses or glasses for the vision test. An athlete will not be cleared to participate unless he/she passes the vision test.
The cost is $25 per athlete but those families with two or more athletes will have the total cost capped at $50. Parents can write a check made out to CHS or pay with cash. Please enter through Entrance 31 (northeast corner of building) and report to the cafeteria waiting area. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Athletes and parents will then be escorted to the physician exam rooms. No walk-ins will be accepted after 8 p.m. each evening.
Any further questions can be directed to Bernie Stento or Nancy Furcsik, CHS certified athletic trainers, at (219) 983-3759.
