Levelland ISD Athletics to Host Free Heart Screenings for All Student Athletes

April 17, 2018

LISDSportsMedicineFor the first time, Levelland ISD will be offering an ECG heart screening to all athletes thanks to “Who We Play For,” and the service is free of charge for the 2018 spring screenings thanks to a partnership with the Cody Stevens Go Big or Go Home Foundation.

In a letter issued from the Levelland Sports Medicine Department and trainers Randy Jackson and Kelsey Beal, it was noted that the first year of the screenings are free to any athlete in both Levelland High School and Levelland Middle School.

Screenings will be held at Levelland High School on April 25th and at the Levelland Middle School on April 26th and times of screenings will be set based on the number of athletes that sign up for the voluntary testing. If the number of athletes dictate, the screenings will be conducted on multiple days.

After the 2018-19 school year, heart screenings will be done for incoming seventh and tenth grade athletes at the cost of $10 per student.

The testing does require consent from the student’s parent or guardian and a letter should have come home with your student athlete. That form needs to be returned to Mrs. Macha at the Levelland High School Field House by April 18th.

They ask students wear losing fitting clothes the day of the screen as it will make the process of attaching the leads and getting the test done quickly and get students back to classes in a timely manner.

For more information contact Levelland ISD Trainers Kelsey Beal at 894-8515 extension 4227 or Randy Jackson at 894-8515 extension 4222.
