LeConte Sports Medicine is gearing up for our annual pre-participation athletic screenings! All student athletes in Sevier and Cocke Counties are required by the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association (TSSAA) to have a pre-participation screening in order to be eligible for tryouts or practices for the 2015-16 school year. The TSSAA requires that these pre-participation screenings take place between April 15 – August 30, annually in order to participate in athletics in the coming school year.
LeConte Sports Medicine will hold pre-participation athletic screenings for all high school student athletes in Sevier County and Cocke County on:
April 28, 2015 at Cocke County High School 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
May 5, 2015 at Seymour High School 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
May 12, 2015 at Sevier County High School 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Any Sevier or Cocke County student who will be participating in high school sports for 2015-16 can come to any of the athletic screening dates above.
The cost for the pre-participation screening is $10. Registration and HIPAA forms should be completed prior to arriving for your screening, and can be downloaded by visiting www.lecontemedicalcenter.com/sportsforms.
A parent’s signature is required on these forms, and we ask that you please complete the forms and sign prior to the screening time. The student athlete should bring the forms with them to the screening site. For more information about the pre-participation athletic screenings you can speak with the Athletic Trainer at your High School, or contact Scott Byrd at 865.755.5742.
