Plan for Bryant athletic physicals announced

Christa Finney, the head athletic trainer, and Mike Lee, athletic director, for Bryant schools have issued this information about physicals for 2020-21 physicals for athletes in the Bryant School District:

Due to the unavailability of mass physicals for the 2020-2021 school year due to COVID-19, it will be necessary for athletes to obtain physicals from their family physicians. With other Saline County schools also taking this approach, scheduling appointments will be difficult. Please note that any athlete who participated in our mass physical at Bryant Middle School on May 21, 2019 will be good through August 21, 2020, so those individuals will have all summer to complete their physical. Parents should refer to their insurance policies regarding coverage and payment of physicals.

The REQUIRED physical forms are the Physical Examination form and Medical History form and may be accessed 3 ways:

  1. Rank One ( under the Download and Print tab.
  3. Obtained from the athlete’s head coach.
