It is that time of the year again when the Godwin Heights Athletic Department needs to start planning for the 2017-18 Godwin Heights Athletic Seasons. The first step to ensure the safety of all the athletes of Godwin Heights is to make sure all of our student athletes have a proper physical from a medical professional on file in our athletic office. The Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) requires all student athletes to have a sports physical on file in the athletic office, clearing them for sports, before a student athlete can begin practice in any MHSAA sanctioned high school sport. This physical is an annual requirement for a student athlete (both high school and middle school) at Godwin Heights to try-out and play in any school sport. The physical must have been administered on or after April 15 of the previous school year to be considered a “current-year physical”. (So, a physical is given on or after April 15, 2017, it will be a “current-year physical” for the 2017-18 school year)
If you have any questions regarding physicals, please contact:
Middle School Student: Ms. Bengtson at 252-2070 or email Ms. Bengtson

High School Student: Mrs. Sharp at 252-2054 or email Mrs. Sharp

“Our goal is to provide your student athletes with a quality healthcare experience that is efficient and helps promote safe participation. We have successfully achieved this goal each year even with a record number of over 600 physicals completed in 2016! With your help and the continued cooperation of parents, students and staff I am confident this year will be another great success. Here are a couple of important key to remember as we move closer to the date of the event. First, please remember that this physical date is designated for student-athletes in grades 9-12 only. Unfortunately, we do not have the bandwidth to accommodate all grades for all of our partner schools. Second, Spectrum Health will not collect any money for this event.”
