Mansfield athletes entering the 7th through 12th grade next school year have an opportunity to get a free sports physical at Mercy Family Medicine located next to the Mansfield Elementary School campus.
Parents or guardians of Mansfield athletes will need to call the clinic at (479)-928-4404 and make an appointment. You must tell the clinic that the appointment is for an athletic physical for the Mansfield school. Appointments are being made immediately and will continue until July 31, 2022.
Once an appointment date has been established, be prepared to arrive early enough on that date to complete a brief medical history. Also, be mindful of directives issued by the Secretary of Health while taking proactive measures to safeguard.
Athletes must receive a new sports physical annually before they are allowed to participate in any of the sport activities available through the school. Activities include summer practice, camps, schooltime practice, or games.
The Mansfield athletic department reminds those athletes that competed in the 2021-2022 school season that many of those sports physicals given last spring and summer are set to expire. Athletes will need to have an updated physical on file as they return to team activities this summer.
Mansfield athletes moving into the seventh grade or new athletes moving into the district will need to present proof of an updated physical on their first day of participation. This would certainly pertain to those athletes wishing to engage in pre-season activities such as weight lifting, conditioning, or skill training.
Mansfield High School and Mansfield Middle School offer a wide variety of sports related activities. Those include cross country, football, volleyball, golf, cheerleading, basketball, baseball, softball, and track and field.
Summer calendars listing activities from the various sports can be made available upon request. Contact the high school office for information. Additional questions may be answered through the high school athletic department by calling the high school at (479)-928-1105.
All new MHS athletes will need to create a DragonFly account for their particular school campus. DragonFly is a AAA affiliated platform that organizes student data such as health records and eligibility requirements. Visit dragonflymax.com and sign up for free.
