To achieve this, the physical team provides physical assessment opportunities, activities, seminars regarding nutrition, fitness tutors, and other relevant support.

Pre-participation Physical Examination

Physicians conduct the pre-participation physicals. The exam includes assessment of:

  • Cardiovascular Risk
  • Immunization
  • Nutrition
  • Complete History
  • Musculoskeletal Examination

These exams are done annually at the beginning of the fall quarter. They last approximately one hour and are free of charge. (If blood work is ordered, the student pays for it at cost).

Fitness Assessment

These assessments include:

  • Body fat analysis
  • Flexibility
  • Strength testing
  • Agility
  • VO2 Max estimate
  • Sit up test
  • Vertical jump

Fitness assessments are given twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
