Press Release:

(Monroe, WI) - With school athletics, summer leagues and athletic camps just around the bend, it’s a great time for students to get a pre-participation screening. These screenings help address any health issues or injuries that could be corrected before next sports season.

Monroe Clinic, will host pre-participation screenings on Thursday, August 30 from 3 – 5 p.m. at Monroe Clinic-Freeport Clinic. All Highland Community College and high school athletes are welcome.

No appointment necessary. The cost is $20 cash, credit or check payable at time of screening. Insurance is not billed.

Pre-participation screenings do not replace complete physicals. To fully address adolescent health issues, incoming ninth grade students are not eligible to receive a pre-participation screening and should receive a full school physical.

The American Academy of Pediatrics and The American Academy of Family Physicians recommend that children and adolescents receive a routine health exam every two years after kindergarten.

There are also a variety of state and school requirements for routine and sports physicals.
