Important Medical Information for First Year Athletes

Important Medical Information for First Year Athletes

Dear Parents and First Year Student-Athletes:

On behalf of the Athletic Training Staff, welcome to Lasell College and congratulations on becoming a member of the Lasell Community. We strive to provide the highest quality Athletic Training services for our student-athletes. The first step toward doing this is to understand your medical history.  It is also important that we have each student-athlete’s medical insurance information on record in case of injury, illness or emergency that requires medical services beyond those we provide on-campus. 

All of your health information, including your medical history, emergency contact information, medical consent forms and insurance information must be submitted electronically through our on-line Sportsware system.  Instructions on how to register and input this information are found here:

Also, all NCAA athletes are required to have a general medical physical by their primary care physician. The NCAA requires that this physical must be done within 6 months of initial participation. There are NO exceptions to this rule. Your physical form MUST be dated after March 1, 2017 in order to participate this year. The physical form can also be accessed from the link above. 

THIS INFORMATION IS IN ADDITION TO THE HEALTH FORMS THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE FROM THE COLLEGE AND SHOULD BE SUBMITTED SEPERATELY!

The Sportsware registrtation must be completed, prior to August 1 and the signed physical form must be returned to the Athletic Training Office no later than August 1, 2017. You will NOT be able to participate in athletics until all of your paperwork is properly completed and verified. Submitting paperwork late may affect your eligibility to try out or to particpate with a team.

Finally, in addition to submitting your medical information and the physical form, all athletes are required to complete an on-line concussion education training.  You must print your completed certifcate and return it to the Athletic Training office. This link is also included with First Year Athlete Information on the athletic training website.  

Your  signed physical form and your completed concussion certificate can be faxed to 617-243-2037, emailed to cnoyes@lasell.edu or mailed to Chris Noyes, Athletic Training, Lasell College; 1844 Commonwealth Avenue, Newton, MA 02466.

Thank you for your cooperation and prompt response.  Should you have any questions regarding the paperwork or any other concerns, please feel free to contact the Athletic Training Office at cnoyes@lasell.edu or  (617) 243-2297. I look forward to meeting you soon.
