Presbyterian Sports Medicine provides free pre-participation sports screenings to Union County student-athletes for the fourth consecutive year on Saturday, June 2.
The service is available to all Union County Public Schools high school students, including rising ninth graders. Screenings will be at Weddington High School June 2 from 8 a.m. to mid-afternoon; each school is assigned a specific block of time.
Screenings include blood pressure and heart rate checks, lung and abdomen checks, strength and flexibility checks and EKGs.
Students can register by visiting www.presbyterian.org/edge or signing a consent form, completing a health questionnaire and returning both to the athlete’s school athletic director by Monday, May 28. These forms are available at all UCPS high schools that offer athletics.
