Victory Medical Group to offer FREE WIAA Sports Physicals
This summer, the three clinics of the Victory Medical Group are again offering free sports physicals for area high school students. Cindy Eichman, president of Our Lady of Victory Hospital and Victory Medical Group, says, “We do this each year as a community service because we know that sometimes it’s difficult for parents to pay for these physicals. We believe it’s very important for our area children to participate in sports programs, that’s why we offer the appointments at no charge.”
The physicals comply with the requirements of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA), which requires that a student have a current physical examination on file before the athlete is allowed to start practice. According to the WIAA, a physical exam performed after April 1 and is valid for the following two school years.
New eligibility requirement this year:
- The student must participate in athletic programs in the Owen-Withee, Stanley-Boyd or Thorp school districts (communities where our VMG Clinics are located)
- Students who participate in athletic programs in the Gilman or Cadott school districts are welcome if they have an existing relationship with a VMG provider
