Incoming Student-Athletes & Parents

Dear Incoming Students and Parents,

On behalf of the Sports Medicine staff, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Wittenberg University. The following information should help make your transition to Wittenberg Athletics an easy one.

Before being allowed to participate in any activity, every student-athlete is required to have the following items completed and on file:

1. New Student Health Information Packet

  • Demographic/emergency contact information
  • Medical history (signed by medical provider)
  • Physical exam (completed by medical provider)
  • Certificate of immunization (completed by medical provider)
  • Insurance information / consent form
  • Privacy statement
  • Guide to Health and Wellness Center / Sports Medicine
  • Health care contact information

Please note that some materials in the New Student Health Information Packet require your medical provider's signature and a physical examination by that provider. The Wittenberg Sports Medicine office WILL NOT provide you with a physical exam from a physician - you must complete a physical exam with a physician before coming to campus in the fall.

2. Student-Athlete Medical Packet

  • Demographic sheet
  • Annual health assessment
  • Insurance card copy and health insurance information 
  • Assumption of risk form (Parent/guardian signature required if student-athlete is under age of 18 years old)
  • Injury/illness reporting form
  • NCAC & Media Access form
  • Inhaler & prescription medication release form

 

Filing Your Paperwork

Sports Medicine Health Screening

The above materials will be reviewed for completion with you by your team Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) at a Sports Medicine Health Screening. Your coach will determine the date, time and location of this screening and provide the details directly to you.

To assure that the screening runs smoothly, please make sure to complete and return the required materials as soon as possible, paying special attention to required signatures and dates.
