New/incoming student-athletes

The University of Nevada requires all freshmen and transfer student-athletes to complete a pre-participation history and physical examination prior to participating in practice or competition. Every athlete must have their history and physical examination on file in the Athletic Training room. This history and physical examination is very comprehensive and will identify existing medical problems which might impair athletic performance/physical health.

Please fill out the following MANDATORY forms prior to your pre-participation examination with the sports medicine staff:

  1. Pre-participation physical examination PDF
  2. Insurance Information Sheet, referral policy PDF: Insurance form MUST be COMPLETELY filled out and a copy of the athlete's insurance card must be attached to insurance form. All athletes will not be allowed to participate in athletics (not even try out) until proof of insurance is provided to the sports medicine staff. Athletes should remain covered by medical insurance for the duration of their athletic participation
  3. If the athlete has had any surgery or medical condition that can potentially affect their performance, the athlete is required to attach copies of their surgical procedure or medical condition to their physical paperwork.
  4. Athletes WILL NOT be allowed to participate in athletic competition if their physical packets are incomplete in any manner. Common mistakes include: failure to provide complete insurance paperwork and failure to fully complete medical form.

Finally, the University of Nevada requires that ALL students (athletes and non-athletes) have their immunization records on file at Admissions and Records. Students are not allowed to register for classes until Admissions and Records receives this information. Upon successful completion of the pre-participation exam the student athlete will be given clearance to practice and participate in all sport related activity including practices, competitions and strength and conditioning sessions. Student-athletes will not be permitted to participate if the pre-participation physical is not completed.

Student-athletes will be notified by medical personnel if the pre-participation examination is not successfully completed. Pre-existing injuries and illnesses are not covered by the University of Nevada. Medical testing and procedures for conditions discovered during the Pre-Participation Exam may be covered by the University.

Returning Athlete Physical Updates

All returning student-athletes are required to complete a Medical History Update Form prior to the beginning of their respective season. Failure to complete this form and consult with a member of the Athletic Training/physician staff will result in athlete being ineligible to participate in his/her sport.

  1. Medical history update form
  2. Insurance Information Sheet, referral policy: Insurance form MUST be COMPLETELY filled out and a copy of the athlete's insurance card must be attached to insurance form. All athletes will not be allowed to participate in athletics (not even try out) until proof of insurance is provided to the sports medicine staff.

All costs associated with any tests or medical procedures necessary to complete medical certification will be the responsibility of the student/parent.
