Proper Medical forms should be picked up in advance of your appointment. A signed medical clearance on athletic department forms will be required before returning to participation.
- The Athletic Trainer may continue to hold out an athlete that has been cleared by a doctor when such action will result in a faster/safer return to full competition.
