Student sports


Annual health screening physicals are required for students who wish to participate in sports. The 86th Medical Group will conduct sports physicals by appointment only Saturday for youth ages 6 to 18 years old enrolled at the Ramstein Clinic. The physicals will be performed from 8 a.m. to 3:35 p.m. at the Ramstein Clinic, Bldg. 2114, and are valid for one year. If your child has had a recent well visit within the past year they do not require an additional sports physical appointment in order to complete the sports physical forms.

Appointments can be made by calling 479-CARE (2273) or 06371-46-2273. The MDG will provide all necessary paperwork for this examination. Families need to arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment to complete paperwork and the necessary pre-examination testing. If a child wears glasses, bring them to the appointment. Have your children wear comfortable clothing, such as a tee shirt and a pair of shorts.

In addition, the 86th Dental Squadron will be providing a walk-in mouth guard clinic for children, teens and young adults. Impressions will need to be tolerated for custom mouth guards, and boil-and-bite mouth guards will be available for smaller children. This is a benefit for children involved in contact sports.
