Starting with the 2009-2010 school year, it is now recommended that Vermont students competing in middle or high school sports receive a “Well Exam” prior to playing school sports. The Well Exam replaces what is commonly known as a “Sports Physical.”
This change is supported by the Vermont Principals' Association, the Vermont Departments of Health and Education, the Vermont Chapters of the American Academy of Pediatrics and Family Physicians, and the Vermont State School Nurses' Association.
