Medical Clearance Information for Athletes

 

All athletes are required to go through medical clearance annually prior to participating in Wesleyan University Athletic Programs.

The sports medicine department's process is separate from the information that student/athletes 
provide the Wesleyan Health Center. Athletes must complete both. 


There are several steps to the medical clearance process for athletes.  The steps are  outlined below:

1. Register on Sportsware.

The Wesleyan Athletic Injury Care department is now using the Sportsware Software for all varsity athletes. Please go to www.swol123.net.

  • First year and sophomores (classes of '19 and '20) must "join Sportsware". The school ID is Wesleyan#1.
  • Juniors and seniors (classes of '17 and '18) will need to reactivate their accounts by hitting "reset password". Please use your Wesleyan email address.
  • Once athletes establish their account on Sportsware they must do the following:
    • Click on the MY INFO section. Complete the general, address, emergency , insurance (upload a copy of both sides of your insurance card) and medical tabs.
    • Click on the HISTORY section. Fill in all of the yes/no questions and give details where appropiate.
    • Disregard the FORMS/PRINT section.
    • Please remember to save your work.

2. Medical Clearance Packet

Please complete all of the required forms in the medical clearance packet. Please complete all sections of the form including medical records, sickle cell, ADD/ADHD, pre-participating screening acknowledgement, insurance information, Athletic Injury Care privacy practice, assumption of risk and informed consent and injury, illness and concussions reporting acknowledgement form. After filling out the entire packet please print the document and sign where indicated. Please bring any relevant paperwork from physicians, ADHD medical exceptions paperwork and the completed medical clearance packet. If you are under 18 a parent/guardian must sign the form. Please bring the completed form to your medical screening.

3. Report to Medical Screening

All athletes are required to go through medical clearance screening prior to participating in official team practices. All athletes should report to the Athletic Injury Care office (located in the lower level of the Freeman Athletic Center) at the assigned date and time. The dates and times for all winter and spring sports are as follows:
