A sports physical is also known as a pre-participation physical evaluation (PPE). This exam helps determine whether it’s safe for the student to participate in a particular sport. The WIAA requires a sports physical every two years for students to participate. The two main parts to a sports physical are the medical history and the physical exam. A sports physical can help detect and manage health problems that might interfere with your sports performance or increase the chance of getting hurt.
