DESCRIPTION 

The LV Sportz Foundation is proud to announce it has opened registrations for their Bi/Tri-Annual Screening Event Thanks to another Gracious Donation from Lerner & Rowe Injury Lawyers! The free youth sports physical and heart screening event will be held on Saturday November 2nd, 2019 at the Las Vegas Sports Park and will provide local youth ages 10 to 18 with FREE comprehensive pre-participation physical evaluations (PPEs/Sports Physicals) and youth athlete heart screenings utilizing 12 Lead EKG’s and 2D Limited Echocardiogram’s.

Interested parents MUST pre-register their child for the event since there is limited space. Parents can visit the LV Sportz Foundation’s Website at http://lvsportz.com/screening for scheduling, forms and more information. Updates can be found on the foundation's Facebook event page: http://facebook.com/lvsportz

On average, nearly one youth athlete under the age of 18 in the United States will die every 3 to 4 days from a heart related condition. Nationally this school year there have been nearly a dozen cases across the country where teens under the age of 18 have died from Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

Locally, in Spring 2016 a local 14 year old passed away from Sudden Cardiac Arrest during a youth football game at Ed Fountain Park. There have also been several scares at local High Schools over the past several years with disaster being averted thanks to saves from local Athletic Trainers with the most recent being in October 2017.

An overwhelming cause of these deaths includes Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) which involves the thickening of the heart muscle, forcing the heart to work harder to pump blood. Other cardiac issues such as Long QT Syndrome and Wolff-Parkinson-White disease also put student-athletes at risk.

Most of these disorders can go unrecognized even though most causes of Sudden Cardiac Arrest in youth athletes can be found and treated before it’s too late. Thorough, in-depth, screenings and worst-case-scenario preparedness, can mean our local youth do not have to fit into that statistic.

The problem is that some of these advance screenings that can catch these issues can cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars! Luckily the local non-profit organization the LV Sportz Foundation is looking to help change that and make these important screenings more readily available.
