Pre-Participation Physical Examinations

Heart Screenings:
"Symptoms that indicate the need for additional evaluation include an abnormal heart murmur, fainting or dizziness (especially during or immediately after exercise), skipping or racing heartbeats, excessive fatigue or shortness of breath associated with exercise, unusual chest pain or discomfort during exercise, high blood pressure, close relatives with heart conditions or the premature cardiovascular-related death of a close relative under the age of 50."

If you  or your child has one or more of the above mentioned symptoms, GET EXAMINED before you continue your sports participation.
