All student-athletes are subject to random and unannounced drug testing in order to participate in intercollegiate athletics. Drug testing will be administered by the NCAA and Tarleton State University. More information is available in the Student-Athlete Handbook.
STUDENT-ATHLETE MEDICAL INFORMATION
The following documentation is required prior to participation in intercollegiate athletics at Tarleton State University. Failure to do so will result in the student-athlete being unable to participate in any form of athletics (practice, conditioning, competition) until all documentation is completed.
All student-athletes must read and complete the Student-Athlete Medical Information packet. It must be returned to your Head Coach prior to the pre-participation physical exam. The student-athlete must also attach a front AND back copy of your current health insurance card.
All returning student-athletes will receive a Medical History Update and Cardiovascular Screening prior to participation each year. This will be administered by Tarleton Sports Medicine. You will be notified of the date, time, and location by your coach.
All incoming student-athletes will receive a Medical History and Pre-participation Physical Exam prior to participation. This will be administered by Tarleton State Sports Medicine. You will be notified of the date, time, and location by your coach.
Incoming Summer Student-Athletes
Incoming summer student-athletes must complete a Summer Screening prior to participation in summer conditioning. Return this documentation to the Head Athletic Trainer.
Exit Physical Exam
The exit physical exam is to be completed by all Tarleton State University athletes who have completed their athletic eligibility, or who will no longer compete in intercollegiate athletics for TSU within two weeks following completion of the season. Failure to complete the exit physical exam will automatically waive Tarleton State University from any medical or financial responsibility.
