Athletic Training Requirements for Student-Athletes
Dear Parents and Athlete:
This letter is in regards to the physical and medical history forms need to be completed to fully participate in Storm athletics. To ensure that you are able to begin practice at the start of the season we ask that you please read and return the insurance packet, physical and medical history forms directly to our head athletic trainer Jason Uhlenhake.
If the forms are sent unmarked or to somewhere else, we cannot guarantee receipt. Please note that both the athlete and a parent must sign ALL forms before returning. This not only makes it easier for the Athletic Training Department, but it allows you to begin practice the first day.
We have also experienced some problems when an athlete’s parents’ insurance coverage or an individual’s insurance coverage has changed or expired during the school year. Therefore, please notify the Simpson College Athletic Training Department at 515-961-1873) immediately if this occurs, so we may record the current plan information before an injury occurs.
Simpson College’s cost for this coverage is experience rated and we want to be able to keep this cost as reasonable as possible so we can continue to provide this valuable coverage for our intercollegiate student-athletes.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Jason Uhlenhake MS LAT ATC
