With high school sports right around the corner, student-athletes need to get their physicals taken care of in order to participate.
Sports physicals for fall, winter and spring will be available at Showalter Middle School (4628 S, 144th St.) from Aug. 16-19 (2-7 p.m.); Aug. 28 (10 a.m.-5 p.m.); Aug. 23-26 (2-7 p.m.); Aug. 30-31 (2-7 p.m.); Sept. 1-2 (3-8 p.m.) and Sept. 6-8 (3-8 p.m.).
The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) and the Tukwila School District require athletes to provide an updated and current physical prior to turnouts. Athletes are responsible for completing a physical update or they will be unable to participate in turnouts.
Making an appointment is recommended, and can be done by calling 206-552-4316. Students entering kindergarten and the sixth grade are required to have a physical. Also available this year will be low-cost dental cleanings, sealants and flouride treatments for all students.
