About our Physicals

The Safe Sports Network offers student athletes state-of-the-art sports physicals free of charge on specific dates/times during the year. This evaluation includes an extensive look at the athlete's medical history and present physical condition and several tests to determine if the athlete can safely participate in their sport. Athletes age 11 and older are eligible.


Please understand that these physicals are designed specifically for sports participation. They are intended as a supplement to, rather than a substitute for, ongoing health care by a family physician or other specialist.  These physicals are not designed to treat or evaluate chronic medical conditions. If your son or daughter is presently under a physician's care for any chronic medical condition, he or she must receive clearance for sports participation by that physician. Also, you must understand that there are some health conditions which cannot be detected by routine physical. If you have any concerns about your child's health, you should discuss them with your family physician or other specialist.


The NH Orthopaedic Center is the title sponsor for these free sports physicals.
