Students from the following schools are eligible for the complimentary health screening on May 18, but they must pre-register.
- Lincoln Charter School
- Lincolnton High School
- North Lincoln High School
- East Lincoln High School
- West Lincoln High School
The educational program provides information and intervention early when habits of healthy living can be set or modified and when young student-athletes are motivated to respond.
Heart of a Champion Day aims to:
- Identify high-risk disorders in student athletes
- Educate student athletes and their parents about injury prevention
- Provide at-risk student athletes with a treatment plan
- Ensure that previous injuries have been treated properly
- Discuss referral options recommended for further evaluation and provide resources to establish a primary care physician
Each student athlete receives a free:
- Review of medical history
- General sports screening for North and South Carolina
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Echocardiogram (ECHO) if needed
- Orthopedic screening (musculoskeletal exam)
- Vision exam
- Access to a registered dietician
Heart of a Champion Day statistics showing the number of student athletes screened and medical issues found are impressive. But it’s the personal stories, of students who were able to continue their athletic careers after being treated for a condition discovered during the screenings, that are most poignant. Independence High football player Jaylen Riley and his mother, Nicole, tell the story of his Heart of a Champion Day experience in 2014.
