FVF PHYSICAL REQUIREMENT
Prior to your child being allowed to participate in the upcoming 2017 Flathead Valley Little Guy Football season, they will be required to have a complete physical administered by a licensed Physician. FVF is proud to be one of the first youth athletic programs in the State of Montana to require pre participation physicals prior to play. This is common practice throughout the United States and FVF is honored to blaze the trail for the youth of the Flathead Valley.
Who?: Every child wishing to participate in the 2017 FVF season
What?: Pre participation sports physical examination. Not just a well child exam. An appropriate form will need to be filled out. CLICK HERE for a league approved form if your physician does not have a sports physical form.
Physicals must be current – conducted after April 21, 2017
When?: Bring your completed physical form to gear handout nights in August. Your child will not be issued their gear or be allowed to practice until the physical has been turned in. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!!!!
Where?: You may use your family physician or any Montana licensed Physician (MD, DC, DO).
Why?: For the kids!!!! The pre participation examination is designed to identify and assess health risks of each athlete who would like to compete in sports. The physical examination is not designed to disqualify athletes, rather to determine the fitness and health of an athlete to participate. Think of the examination as an early warning system, attempting to rule out musculoskeletal, cardiovascular or other conditions that may place your child at risk. Flathead Valley Football’s first priority is the health and safety of each athlete.
FVF feels strongly about this new policy and are certain it will create a safer environment for the kids to enjoy and learn the game of football. This policy will be strictly adhered to and children without physicals will not be allowed to participate. Thank you for being a part of what we feel is the most important change to youth athletics in the State of Montana!
