Summer Camp, School Physicals & Sports Physicals

Let us help your family stay active!

Does your child have medical forms to complete for summer camp or need sports physicals completed for an afterschool program? We routinely perform health screenings to clear kids for participation in their favorite activities, or simply provide the required school physicals they need before entering a new school.

School physicals are important so a school’s staff is aware of any specific health issues that may affect your child, such as asthma, allergies or chronic conditions. The same goes for summer camp and sports physicals, which are important so coaches are aware of any medical issues or injuries that they should keep an eye out for.

During your child’s physical exam, the physician will review your child’s health history and immunization record, perform a complete medical exam, and complete any paperwork required by your sports team, summer camp or school.

Oftentimes school physicals and sports physicals can be completed based on previous well visits for our existing families. In these circumstances, we ask for 48 business hours to complete the form and return them to the family or requested institution. Please be sure to fill out any portion of the form that is to be completed by the parent or guardian before giving the form to San Diego Pediatrics. This helps ensure the timely return of the requested forms.

If your child has not had a well visit with us in the last two years, a well visit appointment must be scheduled and completed first before we can complete the form. If your child is a new patient with us, we can help you schedule an appointment at the earliest mutually convenient time. Please remember to complete all portions of the form that need to be filled out by your family and bring the form to your appointment. Our providers will complete the remaining portions of the form at the time of the visit.
