Dates for Athletic Physicals Announced in Huntington
Huntington students currently in grades 8-11 who are interested in playing on a high school sports team are being offered a free physical exam at Huntington High School on Monday, June 11. The physical exams will run from 2:30-4:30 p.m.
Free physicals will also be provided on Monday, August 13 from 8-10 a.m. at Huntington High School. Free physicals for J. Taylor Finley Middle School athletes will be offered on Tuesday, September 4 from 8-10 a.m. at Finley.
If athletes do not take advantage of this free service they need to obtain a physical exam from their own private doctor. All student-athletes must also complete a health screening form, whether they receive a school or private physical. A full listing of physical dates and a health screening form are available online for downloading by logging on to the school district website at www.hufsd.edu and clicking on the Athletics link and then Forms & Files.
Huntington High School students who have taken a physical still need to "re-qualify" with the school nurse prior to participating on a team. Re-qualification for football players only will be held on August 13 (10-11 a.m.) and August 15 (7-8 a.m.). All other athletes can re-qualify on August 15 from 8-11 a.m., August 24 from 8-11 a.m. or August 27 from 7-10 a.m.
Finley student-athletes can re-qualify with the school nurse on Monday, August 20 or Tuesday, August 21 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Re-qualification will also be held on both Wednesday, September 5 and Thursday, September 6 during lunch periods.
