Youth sports are great for your child! Not only do sports help her stay active, but she also builds social and leadership skills like teamwork and perseverance. Dr. Moemeka highly supports children participating in youth sports. Before kids get out on the field or court, make sure they have the right equipment and are healthy enough for active play. The best way to do this is to come into the office for a sports physical. Most youth sports require a sports physical also known as a pre-participation exam or PPE. Mark9 Pediatrics offers sports physicals throughout the year.
You can download a PPE form on the patient portal or contact your child’s school for one. We can also print one for you from her health record. Don’t delay, call us at 972-325-2005 to schedule an appointment today!
