Free Sports Physicals

Families - please see the message below from the High School Office and expect more information from them or the coach of your sport as laid out below:

The Owatonna - Mayo Clinic Health System will once again be offering free sports physicals this coming August.  However, due to COVID-19 guidelines and protocols, the processing of our students will look much different than in the past. 

On Monday July 13th, we will be sending out a Sign-Up Genius link to each Head Coach to share with their student-athletes. The link will also be available on the Owatonna Activities website. 

(The Sign-up link will not be available to anyone until July 13th)  

Students/Parents will have to sign up for a 15 minute time slot.  Free Sports Physicals will occur on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Aug. 3-6th from 5:30 to 8:00pm each evening at the Owatonna Clinic.  There will be a total of 140-160 slots.  Slots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.  Please be aware that there will be NO walk-ups allowed.

Coaches/Staff will be asked to assist in the process, as we will have to screen and temporal scan students as they arrive.  

With limited slots and the possibility of students not having the opportunity to attend one of those evenings (no walk-ups allowed), we are asking you to communicate with your athletes and encourage any student that needs to update their sports-physical, to set up an appointment and get in as soon as possible.  The more students that can have their physicals updated in June or July, the better.

Students may have sports physicals completed at the following facilities:

  • Owatonna - Mayo Clinic Health System 
  • Owatonna Compcare Urgent Care
  • Cedar Chiropractic
  • Bridges Chiropractic Health Clinic 
  • Balanced Health Care (Formerly McGregor Chiropractic
    The MSHSL has approved a recommendation to allow students that have a physical expiring during the 2020-21 year, to be granted another year on their physical expiration date - allowing for four years.  As a district, we are not allowing this to occur.  All Owatonna students must have an updated sports physical on file every 3 years.  

We will not be allowing the 4th year extension!  

Again, please reach out to your student-athletes and recommend that they get all sports physicals updated as soon as possible. 

Be looking for more information, including a Sign-Up Genius link, on July 13th. 

If you have any questions, please email me or give me a call.  

Thanks for all your help.

Owatonna Soccer Fields Fundraiser

Since 1997 the Owatonna Soccer Association (OSA) has been dedicated to promoting youth soccer for girls and boys in a high quality and safe environment. We have not added any soccer fields in Owatonna since the Owatonna Soccer Complex was built in 2001 despite the fact that the number of participants in our youth soccer programs (offered by the Park & Recreation Department, Owatonna High School and OSA) have increased since then by nearly 30% to over 1,500 players per year. Youth soccer in Owatonna has the most participants, by a substantial margin, over any other youth sport and is expected to continue to have significant growth. We presently have a critical shortage of soccer fields with only four small fields, two medium fields and three regulation size fields (all at the Complex) available for games and only a few other fields available for practice in Owatonna.


2020 Season

Parents - as we kick off the season I wish you all the best of luck. OSA's number one priority is to provide a fun, safe and rewarding soccer experience for everyone. As we approach each game please have the following in mind:

  1. The Refs job is to officiate the game as best they can.
  2. The Players job is to play hard, play as a team and have fun.
  3. The Coaches job is to manage the game, players and encourage his or her team.
  4. The Parents job is to cheer and support the team with encouragement. It is not to coach or ref from the sideline.

Remember - we are all representatives of our community despite the opponent. There are multiple instances where Owatonna will play another Owatonna team this season and into the future...our behavior at those games towards our own kids and parents should be a reflection on how supportive our community truly is.

Good luck!
