PITTSBURGH– UPMC Sports Medicine will host a single session of pre-season physical examinations for high school athletes participating in the 2010-11 fall, winter and spring sports seasons. The exams will be conducted by UPMC primary care sports medicine physicians with the assistance of certified athletic trainers. Physicals will begin at 8 a.m., Sat, July 31, at the UPMC Center for Sports Medicine, 3200 S. Water St., South Side.

The cost is $30 for UPMC-contracted schools or $35 for non-contracted schools. Payment is by cash or check only.

Physical examinations, required by the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association for high school sports participation, can help to identify any pre-existing medical conditions for musculoskeletal problems in young, growing athletes.

To participate, individuals must pre-register by calling (412) 432-3770. Students must attend with a parent or guardian and bring any paperwork required by their respective schools.
