Free Physicals for our Athletes - July 14th From 9:00am - 1:00pm
On July 14th from 9:00am - 1:00pm at RHS, Advanced Spinal Care and Rehabilitation will send their Dr.’s to do sport physicals for FREE for our athletes. This will be ran similar to last year when they did it. Athletes will need to have their physical packets with them and filled out. A parent must accompany their child on this day. It is beneficial to take advantage of this opportunity for two reasons.  First, it’s free.  Second, physicals are good for one calendar year. This allows your child to not have to worry about getting a physical during the school year, which may interrupt their sports season.

That money goes toward a program of Mr. Stoffer's choosing within the High School. We have had one National Fill-Up Night in October. We have a second fill-up night on February 14th for the Ridgewood-Coshocton game.
