A student-athlete who has sustained an injury that requires removal from a practice/game is to be referred to the athletic training staff. The team athletic trainer, in conjunction with athletic training staff, will make the final determination as to a student-athlete’s ability to return to play after incurring an injury during practice/game.

All injuries, regardless of severity, must be documented and referred to the athletic training staff.

If a student-athlete has been referred for emergency treatment or physician diagnosis, a written report must be returned to the athletic training staff prior to the student-athletes return to participation.
