The new school year is here, and playing in organized sports is a great way for a child to have fun, meet friends and stay fit. Most organized sports require a pre-participation physical examination (PPE) prior to participation.

• Existing injuries that may impair their ability to perform

• Current size and developmental maturation, and fitness level
