Free Comprehensive Athletic Physicals- CANCELED!

Dear Adams 12 Athletes and Families,


Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold our annual CAPS (Comprehensive Athletic Physicals for Students) preparticipation
physicals again in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are strongly recommending all student athletes
make appointments with their primary care providers to have their pre-participation examination performed in their
medical home. This is especially important during this time of increased health concern, including mental health, and
heart and lung issues that may arise after COVID-19 illness. We understand that many families depend on the CAPS preparticipation
physicals each year. We wanted to provide alternatives for athletes that may not have health insurance or
an established primary care provider/medical home.


Thornton High School students ONLY:
For any Thornton High School students enrolled in the school based Royal Health Clinic, you may call to schedule your
pre-participation physical. To schedule an appointment or to enroll in the clinic, call 720-972-4976.


The Kids First Health Care Clinic in Westminster (4.5 miles from Northglenn High School) can perform pre-participation
physicals. The cost for uninsured athletes is based on a sliding fee scale, and for pre-participation physicals this ranges
from $20-70 based on federal income levels. No student is ever turned away due to inability to pay and waiving of fees
and special payment arrangements can be made if needed. The phone number to the clinic is 303-428-4384.


Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.


Sincerely,
Dr. Aaron Provance, Bridget Younger and Jenny Van Meter
