Tigers News · PHUSC Pre-participation Sports Physical Exam Day Postponed


Due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 situation, Palmetto Health USC Orthopedic Center’s day for sports physicals, originally scheduled for May 9th at Palmetto Health USC Orthopedic Center has been indefinitely postponed. Please plan accordingly for the athlete’s pre-participation exam to be completed by their primary care physician. The South Carolina High School League is requesting that physicals for the upcoming school year be conducted after May 1, 2020 due to the COVID-19 situation. An updated physical is required for all students that would like to tryout for a Swansea High or Sandhills Middle sports team.

PHUSC encourages athletes and their parents/guardians to consult with their primary care physician, especially if the mass exam date cannot be rescheduled.  As always, the sport physical exam is not a replacement for a child’s annual well-visit.

SwanseaTigersAthletics.com will post a rescheduled date if one is determined by PHUSC.
