Can you believe it? We are a week away from the beginning of soccer practice for the High School teams in the region. Here’s the general calendar, I’ve also got a short list of with pointers to individual schools where I have found information.
Aug. 6 — First fall sport practice
Aug. 21 — First possible contest for fall baseball, softball, girls’ tennis and girls’ golf
Aug. 28 — First possible contest for volleyball, boys’ soccer and cross country
You need a Sports Physical to participate. If you haven’t completed that step, I’ve pulled some information from the Glendale site.
Sports Physicals are being offered by Cox Walnut Lawn Urgent Care for $25. No appointment necessary. Hours are Monday-Friday 7:00am-7:00pm and Saturday-Sunday 8:00am-7:30pm. Call 269-9812 for more info.
The St Louis Post-Dispatch offered some advice for parents last week on the value of the physical in the bigger picture of your child’s health.
