RAPID CITY, S. D. – School-age athletes are eligible for a free sports physical examination at all Monument Health primary care clinics and urgent care locations.

Urgent care facilities will accommodate walk-ins, but primary care facilities do require an appointment. Sports physical exams are required by the South Dakota High School Activities Association, the Wyoming High School Activities Association as well as, other organizations.

The exam will determine if the student athlete is medically eligible to participate in sports. This free service does not include well-child exams, vaccinations, assessment of new or established medical problems, medication refills or any other types of medical exams. If the exam reveals issues that require further care, the patient will be referred back to their primary care provider. If the patient doesn’t have a provider, Monument Health can arrange an appointment. 

The free physicals are offered as a courtesy to all local athletes, from grade school to college. To view a full list of locations, visit
