Low-cost sports physicals offered at Cottage Grove High School, Creswell Clinic and Dexter Clinic
PeaceHealth Medical Group is offering low-cost sports physicals this year to student athletes in Cottage Grove, Creswell, Dexter, Oakridge and Pleasant Hill.
Sports physicals are required before students are allowed to participate in school sports. To make it easier for students and parents, the medical group will offer sports physicals at three convenient locations in August.
Students may receive a sports physical at the following locations:
• Cottage Grove High School, 1375 S. River Road, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Aug. 15 and Aug. 16. This clinic is for students in the South Lane School District.
• Creswell Clinic, 98 W. Oregon Ave., from 4 to 7 p.m. on Aug. 8. This clinic is for students in the Creswell School District.
• Dexter Clinic, 38843 Dexter Rd., from 4 to 7 p.m. on Aug. 15. This clinic is for students in the Pleasant Hill, Lowell and Oakridge School Districts.
Physicals are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Appointments are not required. The exam costs $20 (cash or check), and all money raised is donated back to the local high schools to fund scholarships, replace equipment, and cover fees for students who would otherwise not be able to participate in sports programs.
More than 230 physical exams were performed at last year’s low-cost sports physical event, raising $4,800 for the local school sports programs in Cottage Grove, Creswell, Lowell, Oakridge and Pleasant Hill.
