Getting Started:

 
To participate in an intercollegiate sport, ALL student-athletes are required to attend a preparticipation medical screening with the Ursinus College Sports Medicine Team.
  • Screenings have been scheduled for you and your teammates once you arrive on campus.
  • In preparation for this screening you MUST complete a series of documents prior to 7/30/2013.
  • Below is a brief description of the documents you must complete.
  • Read over each description, as well as the directions which follow, to ensure you complete all documents.

Document Descriptions:

Preparticipation Physical Evaluation - The student athlete is required to answer the survey questions with honesty and to their best abilityin order to pass accurate information on to the UC medical staff.  Submitting a complete and correct medical history will greatly ease the pre-season screening process when these questions are reviewed with your licensed athletic trainer.  You will notbe allowed to receive your pre-season screening without completing this survey, and all athletes must pass this screening before beginning sport participation.

On-Line Insurance Enrollment/Waiver - The injured student-athlete is sometimes referred by the Ursinus College Sports Medicine Team to outside medical facilities.  In the event of referral to an outside facility your personal health insurance is used as primary payment, with Ursinus College providing a secondary insurance policy for official athletic injury cases.  (Please Note; Detailed information on this secondary policy can be found at the bottom of this text section - SEE "Policy Statement For Athletic Insurance).  To facilitate prompt care and effective communication with medical/insurance providers, you must complete the posted (enrollment/waiver) document providing information about your current personal health care plan.

  • Student-athletes and their families are required to access this document as needed to update insurance information each and every time a change in coverage/policy occurs.
  • Student-athletes are required to have their personal insurance card, or copy, on campus at all times.
  • The student-athlete will be required to bring this card/copy with them to their team’s Pre-Season Athletic Physicals.
  • The student-athlete should be prepared to produce this card as needed throughout the school year in order to facilitate referral for off-campus care.
  • Policy Statement For Athletic Insurance - Download and keep this form. It explains the policy of the Ursinus College Athletic Accident Insurance.

Medical Consent - All students must complete and submitthis document to be eligible to receive their pre-season screening.

Authorization for Release (HIPAA Policy) - Completion of this document authorizes Ursinus College Licensed Athletic Trainers to release injury information.

BEGINNING in 2013, The NCAA dictates that all student-athletes have knowledge of their sickle cell trait status.  Student-athletes must 1) show proof of a prior test with results; 2) have a blood test to check for sickle cell trait; OR 3) sign a testing waiver declining options 1 and 2.  Whichever option is chosen, it must be completed before the athlete participates in any intercollegiate athletics event, including strength and conditioning sessions, practices, competitions, etc.   Athletes who are positive for the trait will be allowed to participate in intercollegiate athletics; this does NOT prohibit you from playing.
