Looking to join a sport?  Check out the different sports pages!  Each page contains information about the sport, meet schedules, and coach contact information.  Remember your student can check out the activities board or check with the student engagement coordinator for more information.

Participation in sports requires a physical form to be filled out each year, as well as sports registration and signed concussion form.

You can get a physical at many places in the metro for free. Scavo Clinic provides free physicals to DMPS students. The address is 1800 Grand Ave, Des Moines, IA 50309.  Their phone number is (515) 242-7589.

Goodrell also has a partnership with Primary Health Clinic at the corner of E. 29th St. and Euclid and occasionally takes students there to get a physical. Please contact the Student Engagement Coordinator if you would like to explore this option.
