A sports physical is not the same as a regular physical; sports physicals assess the health and fitness of an individual in relation to a particular sport they want to play. A physical examination by a physician is required for high school athletics in Hawaii.
A sports physical is often called a pre-participation physical. The athlete is examined to identify any high-risk disorder or condition that might affect an athlete’s ability to safely play. The sports physical varies among providers, but the goals of the exam are generally the same. The purpose of a sports physical is to gain an understanding of the following factors:
Any existing injuries
Current fitness level
Conditions that might increase the risk of injury
