Health Clearances

Students participating in club sports are required to have a completed “Athletic Physical” form on file annually at Student Health Services prior to starting any physical activity with the club. This form must be completed by an outside physician, nurse practitioner, or physician’s assistant with the provider’s office stamp in the appropriate area. This form can be obtained in person from Student Health Services, the Pride Recreation Center, or electronically via MyWidener. Note: Students are also required to advise Student Health Services in writing of any significant change in their health status.

An ImPACT test (baseline cognitive testing) is also required for all club sport participants prior to participation. This annual test is provided at no cost by Pride Recreation and is mandatory for all club sport participants to assure a baseline in the event that a traumatic brain injury (concussion) occurs.

Mandatory Athletic Insurance

University-provided athletic “excess” insurance is required for all club sport participants. This policy is a secondary insurance to a student’s personal health insurance and is directly billed to a student’s account once they have been cleared to participate. The annual premium coverage is valid for one academic year and billed based on whether the sport is classified as contact or noncontact. If an athlete has participated in intercollegiate sports or more than one club sport in the same year, they will only be charged one premium.
