What is Heart of a Champion Day? (HOC)

Heart of a Champion is a FREE PHYSICAL with EKG for rising 10th, 11th, and 12th grade student athletes provided by Atrium Health. Students sign up during the open period, typically in April-May. The students show up to their respective school and are taken to HOC by bus for their physical at their school's designated time. First timers with HOC receive an EKG and echocardiogram if warranted. Returning students will receive scans if it is deemed necessary by our medical providers. HOC could not be pulled off without our wonderful volunteers and sponsors.

Athletic Training Forms FAQ

In your eligibility packet the last few forms can be pretty confusing, here's the most common questions..If this does not answer your question don't hesitate to email Danielle at the address listed above. And yes, your physical HAS to be on this form, the state will audit us and we get in trouble if no!

Why do I have to sign this now if you've been treating my kids for years? Through the agreement between CMS and Atrium Health, these forms were put into place to prevent any types of liability issues to protect both the safety of our student athlete and of our Athletic Trainer. 

I prefer Novant facilities, why would I sign this? The Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) at Myers Park HS is an employee of Atrium Health and this form is referring to that, medical facility preference should be noted on the Sports Medicine form. Your child will not be sent to a facility that you do not want them sent to.

Why should I sign a release of my child’s health records? This form is the most confusing, the areas highlighted in teal are the only portions that need to be filled in. This form allows the ATC to communicate on the behalf of you and your family to the coach, guidance office, and teachers regarding an injury sustained by your child. Our ATC does NOT have access to your health records, solely the records reported from medical treatment for said injury.
