FIRST YEAR STUDENT-ATHLETES
Click on First Year Information for a checklist of the steps necessary to obtain medical clearance. No practice will be allowed until you are medically cleared. Originals and a photocopy of the required documents (health history, physical exam, insurance card, sickle-cell trait, and HIPAA) must be submitted by the deadline. Do not hand-carry these documents to campus.

Click on Insurance Form to provide required insurance information and emergency contact information. This is an electronic submission. Take care of this ASAP.

Once ALL documents are submitted, they will be reviewed for accuracy and to identify any red-flags. The documents will then be sent to the Team Physician for his review and final signature. This process can take 7-10 once we receive them. Once the Team Physician has signed, your Head Coach will be notified that you are medically cleared to begin practicing.

Contact and collision athletes will be required to undergo baseline concussion testing before the first practice.
