  • Substantially reduce the risk of athletic injury for those student-athletes in our care.
  • Enable injured the student-athlete to return to their sport as soon as it is medically safe.
  • Encourage a philosophy of sport that stresses health and wellness.

Medical services provided:

Physical Examination 

Cape Fear Community College requires all student athletes to go through a pre-participation physical examination prior to participating in organized practice or competition. Every athlete must have their physical examination on file with the athletic department prior to the season. This physical examination should be arranged prior to coming to campus and by your attending family physician.
