Each year, 21 million children participate in youth sports programs, which translates to approximately 75% of boys and 69% of girls. Sports have long defined the childhoods of many Americans. Children instill important lifelong virtues such as teamwork and leadership while exercising in a fun and safe manner. But in order to ensure the safety of its participants, these sports programs require each member to show proof of a recent physical.

Around the time that many of these programs begin, family physicians get overbooked with appointments for these sports physicals. This may make it difficult for parents to schedule their children’s physical by the time these programs begin. Fortunately, we here at AFC Urgent Care New Britain are here to help make sure your child participates in sports this season.

At AFC Urgent Care New Britain, we’ll accommodate your child and provide them with a sports physical on a walk-in basis. This means you’ll never need to schedule an appointment, as you can simply walk right into our center any day of the week.
