Free Heart Screenings
If you are a parent of a student athlete that did not participate in the NISD physicals on May 3rd, and was not able to receive the free heart exam do not fear! The AugustHeart foundation that performed that amazing free service for our athletes is performing free screening again June 14th at North Central Baptist Hospital. Please visit their web page at the link below for anymore questions.
If you are a parent of a student athlete that will be participating in the May 3rd Northside Physicals PLEASE print off the 2014-2015 Parent Information Letter at the bottom of this page! This letter will help with any questions you may have for the upcoming physicals.
Dear Brandeis Broncos,
We are now preparing for the 2014-2015 school year and anyone wanting to participate in any sport must have a new Medical History Packet on file with the Training Room before you will be allowed to participate in any sport. However any physicals for the 2014-2015 school year that are dated prior to April 1st will not be considered valid! You must have your 2014-2015 physicals dated after April 1st 2014 and they must be on the current 2014-2015 physical packet form. This form is now available to download at the bottom of this page, but please do not get your physical before April 1, 2013! Please look at the top right hand corner of the physical packet. It must be dated 2014-2015! If you happen to be an incoming freshman, a junior, or you are new to the school this year you will need a new physical as well. If you have been diagnosised with asthma you must have an asthma action plan on file. This form is for both high school students and middle school students. This form must be filled out annually. These forms must be renewed annually by your physicain. There are two pages to this form or one page with a front and a back. You can acquire these papers from the training room or you can download from the list below. Your student will be sent home with a parent letter that explains what needs to filled out, as well as any information about the May 3rd Northside Physicals. Please read the box that is outlined on the first page of the packet that is immediately under the contact information. This information is very important and explains how to complete the following medical history portion on the first page. How you complete this information will dictate whether you need further clearance for any pre-existing conditions, and be excluded from participating in the Northside Physicals. If you have any questions please contact the training room at 210-397-8273. Other forms explaining the process, dates, and times of the Northside Physicals will be listed at the bottom of the page. Look for headings labeled May 3rd physicals, and Acknowledgement and Release forms.
So to cut through all the wordiness, Please read the appropriate sections below to inform you of what you need for your physical, and to participate in sports at Brandeis. If you, a family member, or your child has ever experienced any heart related issues!! Please read and elaborate on any yes answers to question #3 in the medical history section of the pre-participation packet (1st page). This year all students participating in physicals will receive free EKG screenings from the August Heart Association during the physicals. If during the examination any abnormalities are recognized they will receive an ECHO cardiogram to determine the extent of the abnormality. Please complete the student waiver for you child to receive this screening. It is a tremendous oppurtunity for us to protect your student athlete, please take part!
2014-2015 August Heart Screening
