Physicals for Rising 9th Grade Athletes
If you have a rising 9th grader who anticipates participating in FCPA high school athletics, they need a physical exam before participating in summer tryouts, conditioning and training camps. FCPS’s Athletic Trainers offer physical exams from qualified health care professionals for a fee ($50 in advance, $60 at the exam) as a fundraiser for the athletic trainers program.
Last Date at local high school: June 6th at Marshall HS.
