YUHSD to host no-cost sports physical event on May 16

Yuma Union High School District, in partnership with Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) will be hosting a no-cost sports physical event on May 16, 2023 in Yuma High School’s Palace Gym.

The event is open to all YUHSD student-athletes. 

Doors open at 4 p.m. and exams will be given from 4:30-7 p.m. by Dr. Ryan Zerr and other medical residents from YRMC. Parents/guardians must be in attendance. 

“The partnership between YUHSD and YRMC provides student-athletes with free sports physicals so that they can participate safely,” YUHSD Athletic Trainer Shannon Carmody said. “It is a great resource for families to take advantage of if they have students interested in participating in sports throughout the 23-24 school year. We are so thankful to have supportive doctors willing to help out at this event.”

A physical is required to participate in Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) competition. All physical examinations completed at the event will cover the student for the 2023-24 school year.
