The Cabot Athletic Department in conjunction with the Cabot Public Schools Athletic Training Department and staff, CPS sports medicine students, Harding University's PA's, UCA Athletic Training students, and other local healthcare providers provided almost 400 student athletes with their Pre-Participation Exam/athletic physical's on Saturday, April 15.
The physicals consisted of: musculoskeletal screenings, vital signs screenings, and height and weight measurements of our student athletes.
The very first and most important aspect to providing our student athletes with appropriate athletic healthcare is providing them with a thorough Pre-Participation Exam (P.P.E). The National Federation of High School Sports along with the Arkansas Activities Association mandate that every athlete must have an annual P.P.E as part of their eligibility requirements for athletics. The P.P.Es were provided at no charge to our parents/athletes of Cabot Public Schools.
We would like to say thank you to the healthcare providers that made this event a success.
