Orange Grove Athletics Department has partnered with the Cody Stephens Memorial Go Big or Go home Foundation to offer free heart screening to all Orange Grove athletes in 6th-12th grade. The screening will be held on February 27th with Jr High athletes being tested in the morning and High school athletes tested in the afternoon.
Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) is the leading cause of death in exercising young athletes. The underlying cause of SCD is structural cardiac abnormalities which presence is usually unknown to the athlete. EKG testing is the best way to identify these abnormalities. The Cody Stephens Memorial Foundation offers free EKG testing which are read by board certified Cardiologist with results returned within three days.
We highly recommend all athletes to take this opportunity to get tested. A consent form and FAQ is located below. Please fill out the consent form and turn them into Coach T, or your building secretary, whether you are opting in or opting out of the testing by February 13th. Please contact me with any questions or concerns at (620) 931-5235 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Athletic Department is now accepting all forms through Sportsware Parent Portal. Please click on the pdf file for portal instructions.
