NILES — With just over a month remaining before the start of the fall high school sports season, athletes are reminded that they must have a physical on file at their respective athletic departments in order to begin practice or participate in contests starting in August.

Buchanan will host its on-campus physical day July 13 from 8 to 10 a.m.
Physicals will be done by the Spectrum Health Lakeland Family Medicine Program.
All Michigan High School Athletic Association physical forms will need to be 100 percent completed prior to the event. If not, no physical will be performed.
The Viking Athletic Department will have a doctor at the Niles High School office on the following days to provide athletic physicals:
• July 20 from 8 to 10 a.m.
• July 27 from 8 to 10 a.m.
• Aug. 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Cost to those not with Niles Athletics is $50.
Parents are urged to fill the physical form out prior to the date of physicals.
