Drop-In Physical Exams for Athletics in July & August

July 21, 2023

Lansingburgh students needing a physical exam to participate in Fall 2023 Athletics are welcome at the district's drop-in physical sessions being offered on the dates below. No appointment is needed. Physical exams will be conducted by the district's Medical Director Matthew Hickling (PNP). The current NYS Health Exam Form for Schools is available here and will be completed by the district's medical director during your student's physical exam.

A reminder that all student-athletes need an up-to-date physical examination to participate in school sports. Physicals must have taken place within one year of the start date of the season to participate at all levels (modified, JV or varsity). If you are unsure if your student needs an updated physical, please reach out to Amy Gamache by email ( or phone (518-233-6819).

Please note, the district’s drop-in appointments are not intended to replace the more thorough physical exam students would receive from their primary care provider. The drop-in appointments below are meant for students who cannot receive a physical from their primary care provider before the start of their athletic season this school year.

Even if you plan on your student receiving a drop-in physical, the Lansingburgh CSD Health Team highly recommends you also have your established primary care provider examine your student, as they can identify health issues that may contribute to or interfere with your student’s ability to function in school.
