Military Parents Should Make Sports Physical Appointments Now
No sense waiting til the last minute, go ahead and make your child's sports physical appointment now. Then you are more likely to get the day and time you want.
Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center will hold this year’s annual Sports Physical Clinics July 27 and September 7 from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Thomas Moore Health Clinic at Fort Hood.
Children ages 4 – 18 years who are enrolled in Tricare are eligible. Parents you must make an appointment or they won't see you. No Walk-ins! Routine childhood immunizations will NOT be offered during the Sports Physical Clinics.
Parents bring the child dressed in comfortable gym clothing and shoes. Those over the age of 10 must have a DEERS identification card in their name. Parents or guardians of children under the age of 10 will also be required to provide a DEERS identification card. Additionally, participants will need to bring a copy of their school’s sports physical form and their immunization record.
Not every child needs a Sports Physical. The Killeen Parks and Recreation Department does not require sports physicals for participation. Killeen and Copperas Cove Independent School Districts only require sports physicals for students who are entering 7th, 9th or 11th grade unless there has been a change in the student’s medical condition since their last examination.
Fort Hood Child and Youth Services require physicals for children of all ages in order to participate in activities.
To make an appointment for the Darnall Sports Physical Clinic, please call (254) 288-8888 from 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday – Friday.
