Department of Athletics
The health and safety of student-athletes, coaches, staff, recruits, donors and fans, remains a top priority. For this reason, safety protocols have been developed for returning to campus, as well as detailed guidelines for the start of athletic training
and competition. The protocols and guidelines, which are specific to Athletics, its constituents, facilities and events, will focus on / screening, social distancing and sanitizing. They are designed to help prevent the spread of infection, and will
be executed, adjusted and strictly enforced in concert with university, local, state, NCAA, CIAA, FDA, CDC and other national governing body policies and orders.
The University’s plan for all students will be used as a foundation for this plan. However, due to specific needs and activities for which student-athletes engage, the return to campus and participation will begin in phases. There will be a screening
phase of the processes outlined in this document in preparation for the full return of all student-athletes. We will use recommendations from the CDC, NCAA, CIAA, FDA, the university and from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NCSA).
Student-athletes and parents will receive communications notifying them of our action plan and protocols to mitigate risks. This letter will provide clear guidelines regarding their son’s/daughter’s participation, insurance information specific to
COVID-19 coverage, and include the Informed Consent Form for Participation. Upon arrival to campus, all student-athletes will complete the COVID-19 screening questionnaire and the Informed Consent Waiver.
