On Wednesday April 27, Zeeland Public Schools hosted their Pre-Participation Physical Exam night at Shoreline Orthopaedics. This annual event is offered as a cost effective way for athletes to get the MHSAA required physical to allow for sports participation for middle school and high school. The high school athletic trainers are in charge of coordinating the event and we wish to thank everyone involved. This year we had a great turn out with just over 350 athletes! All of the money raised stays at the schools to help supplement medical supplies and necessities for our athletes. All providers and healthcare professionals involved volunteer their time and services to help make this event a success every year.
A very special thank you to Shoreline Orthopaedics and Holland Hospital Rehabilitation Services for the use of their facilities.

Coaches and administrators from both high schools who helped in various ways also helped to make the night a success.
We simply could not offer this opportunity for our student-athletes without the help of each and every person. Thank you to all of our volunteers and to everyone who came to support our schools.
