Assumption of Risk Statements
Statement of Insurance Coverage:
Sports activities have varying degrees of risk of injury which participants should recognize by the nature of the activity.Students who participate in the intercollegiate sports program must show proof of personal health insurance that covers intercollegiate athletic injuries. If a student has a plan in their name or a plan through a parent’s insurance, this will act as their primary insurance. The athletic department also has a limited athletic insurance policy for all participants that helps to cover expenses incurred in excess of the student’s primary insurance. This policy covers only injuries that occur during official practice or games of the sport in which the athlete is participating and may exclude pre-existing conditions. Should an injury occur, you must report this to a certified athletic trainer. You must have an injury report on file and a claim form completed by a certified athletic trainer. Health Services will discuss your options for medical care on an individual basis and will assist students in accessing appropriate medical care. If there is a remaining balance due after your insurance has paid for your treatment, Health Services will guide students through submitting claims to the athletic insurance carriers. No bills are “paid automatically.” It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that bills are paid in a timely manner.
Authorization: I have read and understand the information above. I hereby authorize any hospital, physician or other person who had attended or examined or has in his possession records pertaining to my care, to furnish current athletic insurance company or its representatives, any and all information with respect to any illness or injury, medical history, consultation, prescriptions, or treatment, and copies of all hospital or medical records and all other information requested. It is agreed that all medical and/or hospital expenses incurred beyond those covered by any applicable insurance policy will be paid directly and promptly by the undersigned student and parents or guardians, and the athletic department will not be responsible thereon. A photocopy of this authorization shall be considered as effective and valid as the original.

Assumption of Risk:
I fully understand that while playing or practicing to play/participate in intercollegiate athletics serious injuries can occur, such as head, neck and spinal injuries which may result in complete or partial paralysis, brain damage, serious injury to virtually all internal organs, serious injury to virtually all bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and other aspects of the muscular skeletal system, and serious injury or impairment to other aspects of my body, general health and well-being. I understand that the dangers and risks of playing and practicing to play/participate in intercollegiate athletics may not only result in serious injury, but in a serious impairment of my future abilities to earn a living, to engage in other business, social, and recreational activities, and generally to enjoy life. As a participant, I knowingly accept this risk. Because of the dangers of participating in athletics, I recognize the importance to follow the coaches’ and trainers’ instructions regarding playing techniques, training and other team/game rules, and agree to abide by such instructions.
Parent/Guardian Signature: (if minor)_______________________________Date:______________
FOOTBALL ONLY: I also understand that while participating in football it is a violation of the football rules to use the helmet, which I am wearing, to butt, ram, or spear an opposing player, teammate or object, and such use can result in severe head or neck injury, paralysis or death to me as well as possible injury to an opponent or teammate. Also, I understand that no helmet can prevent all head and neck injuries that I might receive while participating in football.

Emergency Medial Consent:
I give athletic coaches and Sports Medicine Staff (i.e., Certified Athletic Trainers, team physician, paramedics, or emergency room physicians) as our agent(s), permission to consent to and administer emergency medical treatment in the event of a serious or life-threatening injury. This consent includes any x-ray examination, anesthetic, medical, or surgical diagnosis or treatment and hospital care which is rendered under the general or special supervision of any physician and surgeon licensed hospital, whether such examination, diagnosis, treatment, or hospital care being required and gives our agent(s) the authority and power to give specific consent to any and all such examinations, diagnosis, treatment, or hospital care which the physician in his/her best judgment may deem advisable. Information collected on this form is used for the purpose of determining medical status. Information on this form, as well as medical information collected throughout the school year pertaining to the practice and play of intercollegiate athletics, will be reviewed by Health Services staff as well as the Athletic Trainers and Team Orthopedist. I authorize Athletic training, the Team Orthopedist, and Health Services to review and discuss medical information as necessary to establish medical clearance to participate in Intercollegiate Athletics. Medical information not directly related to my medical clearance will not be discussed unless specifically authorized by me. I understand that information will not be shared with individuals not listed above, without my consent.

Athlete Evaluation Forms Purpose
Each of the athlete evaluation forms should have a primary purpose around which it can be designed and planned, although it may have several other purposes. It is a common problem in athlete evaluation studies that they are expected to be all things to all people, whereas the reality is they have limited resources and thus should only focus on a limited range. Athlete evaluation studies which are too much of a shotgun approach are unlikely to adequately address the needs of any stakeholders.
