Pre-Participation Exams


The SDSMF is pleased to provide pre-participation sports screening exams for all high school student athletes in San Diego and Riverside counties. Each student is required by CIF to have a medical screening before they can participate in sports or activities each school-year. The SDSMF will provide medical personnel and volunteers to conduct the screenings on specific dates. All high schools in the districts will be assigned to a date and location for the large scale screening day.

Each student who participates in the pre-participation screening exam will have a completed Medical Form valid for one year to participate in sports or activities. Each Medical Form will be signed by a medical doctor and verified by a stamp from SDSMF.


Each student requesting a screening must be enrolled in a high school in San Diego or Riverside County. Each student must provide a signed Parent Consent form and medical form with health history completed at check-in for the screening.


$20.00 to $40.00 per student. Fee is paid to the SDSMF via cash ONLY on the screening exam day.


A percentage of the money collected from the Pre-Participation Screening Exams will be divided evenly and donated back to each school's Athletic Department training room budget. The total amount donated will be less the hard costs to conduct the pre-participation screening exams. We are estimating 90% to be returned to the participating schools. These goals are based on student attendance. The budget is around $5,000 for the entire program. The goal is to examine 800 to 1000 students’ district wide to be able to donate back an estimated amount of $800 to $1000 per school! Since 2008 over 4000 student athletes have participate in the pre-participation sports exams.
