Health Service and the Athletic Training Department must screen all student-athletes in order to participate in intercollegiate athletics. All requirements must be completed fully before the student-athletes may practice (including weight training and cardiovascular conditioning). Athletes will not be partially cleared by either Health Service or the Athletic Training Department. It is the student – athlete's responsibility to refrain from participation in practices or conditioning programs until fulfilling all requirements. It is the responsibility of the head coach to inform the athlete of the teams selected physical examination date and to insure that all student-athletes are cleared for participation.
Each preseason student-athletes are not allowed to participate with his/her team due to failure to fulfill all of the sport participation requirements. The most common reasons are:
No pre-entrance university physical on file with CCSU Health Service.
Immunization records incomplete.
Cardiac records not forwarded to CCSU Health Service.
Insurance information form either not on file or incomplete.
Failure to keep the sport physical appointment at Health Service.
Student-athletes who fail to keep a scheduled appointment with Health Service may jeopardize his/her ability to be cleared for sport participation for several days. Athletes who miss appointments are responsible for calling Health Service and rescheduling their appointment at the convenience of Health Service. Athletes must understand the importance of arriving on time for all scheduled appointments with Health Service and the Athletic Training Facility. Coaches will be notified of athletes who fail to keep scheduled appointments.
