Got a young athlete who needs a sports physical?
Physicals are required by the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA), the governing body of the state’s high school sports. AIA regulations dictate that
student athletes undergo physical examinations on or after March 1 of the preceding school year in order to participate in the next sports season.

NextCare Urgent Care offers free sports physicals to the first 50 students who come to the NextCare office at 914 N. Scottsdale Road in Tempe beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 2.
The medical staff there will conduct about 25 on-site physicals on Saturday, and the remaining recipients will receive a voucher to return at his/her convenience for a free physical.
Also, those who attend through noon but aren’t among the first 50 attendees will still receive a voucher for a $10 sports physical that can be redeemed at a later date.
