Health Screenings

NSSO believes that one of the smartest and easiest preventative measures an athlete can take to protect themselves is to be annually screened before starting their new sports season. We recommend that electrocardiograms and asthma screening should be mandatory for all student athletes, along with annual physical check-ups. Finding a possible health issue before it erupts is much safer than discovering it after the fact, when it may be too late.

However, we know that cost is a factor for many, so the staff at NSSO will be researching health facilities to find out who is willing to offer these services at low or no cost to local sports teams and organizations, especially those involving children. Please Contact NSSO to find the facilities in your area that offer free or low cost screenings for high school and college athletes. Be proactive and be smart - get screened today.
