Zeeland Physical Night
Zeeland Pre-participation Physical Evaluation (PPE) Physical Night
Each year, the Zeeland athletic training staff plans a Pre-participation Physical Exam (PPE) event open to Zeeland student-athletes entering grades 6-12. This event serves as an affordable option for student-athletes to receive their annual pre-participation physical exam that is required by the school and MHSAA prior to athletic participation. Please note that this PPE is NOT intended to replace a more thorough annual physical, also known as a well-child check, provided by your primary-care provider for medical and insurance purposes. The PPE is only intended to provide student-athletes an affordable option to meet the requirements for athletic participation. You can find more information about well-child visits in the videos below.
If your child has a current, pre-existing health condition, this event may not be the best option for you. In this case, we recommend that your child receive their sports physical from their primary-care provider who is already aware of the condition and current management process.
- Every student-athlete attending the physical must come with a printed physical form that is signed by the student and a parent/guardian and has ALL of the health history portion already completed. This includes accurate explanations for any "Yes" answers. Students who do not meet this requirement at the door, will not be permitted to enter or complete the remainder of the process.
- Parents are encouraged NOT to accompany their child through the line in order to decrease congestion and overall wait time for all student-athletes.
- If abnormal findings are discovered during the exam process an information sheet on the findings will be sent home with the child with follow-up instructions.
- If more serious abnormalities are found a parent will be contacted directly by a clinician or provider to allow for a more thorough explanation and allow any and all questions to be answered.
