Kentucky Wesleyan College Athletic TrainingAssumption of Risk 2019-2020
The undersigned herewith formally acknowledges and declare the following:I, , understand that participation in sport requires a personal acceptance of risk of injury. Athletes generally expect that those who are responsible for the conduct of sport take reasonable precautions to minimize such risk and that their peers participating in the sport will not intentionally inflict wrongful injury upon them.I understand that participation in Intercollegiate Athletics at Kentucky Wesleyan College may result in injury/illness, permanent physical or mental impairment or even death. These injuries may include,but are not limited to; head injuries, neck or back injuries, strains, sprains, contusions, lacerations, internal organ injuries, loss of limb or vital organ, or cartilage injury; may be minor or may be career ending or life threatening. I understand that Kentucky Wesleyan College cannot be held responsible for any injuries or conditions that may be caused by the actions of other athletes or teams. I also understand that injuries may be caused by my own failure to follow safety procedures or techniques which are made known to me by my coaching staff, athletic training staff, or by the strength and condition personnel or are otherwise known to me from another source including but not limited to medical personnel of the college.
I have read the above shared responsibility statement. I understand that there are certain inherent risks involved in participating in intercollegiate athletics. I acknowledge the fact that these risks exist and I am willing to assume responsibility for any and all such risks while participating in Intercollegiate Athletics at Kentucky Wesleyan College. I also agree to the following: All injuries and illnesses must be reported to the athletic trainer immediately. The coaches at Kentucky Wesleyan College are NOT athletic trainers. The athletic trainers are NOT liable for injuries sustained during practices and/or games. The athletic trainer will make any necessary referrals to our team physician. Parents and athletes SHOULD NOT set up appointments without approval from their Head Athletic Trainer. If an appointment is set by someone other than the Kentucky Wesleyan Athletic Training staff, all bills will become the responsibility of the athlete and/or their parents. I voluntarily assume all risks associated with my participation in Intercollegiate Athletics. I voluntarily assume all costs, including deductibles, co-pays, medical bills etc. incurred as a result of injuries or illness associated with my participation in Intercollegiate Athletics. I accept and agree that Kentucky Wesleyan College and its personnel are not to be held responsible for any pre-existing medical condition(s) that I may have. I understand that I must refrain from practice while injured or ill, whether or not receiving medical care. When under medical care I may not return to participation until I have been given permission, based on independent exercise of professional judgment, by the Head Athletic Trainer, or the Team Physician after review of my condition and fitness for the rigors of my sport. This may occur during or at the conclusion of medical treatment(s). I understand that having passed the physical examination does not necessarily mean that I am physically qualified to participate in Intercollegiate Athletics at Kentucky Wesleyan College, but only that the doctor did not find a medical reason to disqualify me at the time of the physical examination. I understand that if I experience an injury/illness or change in my health status, including signs and symptoms of concussion according to the educational material provided to me, it is my responsibility to immediately inform the Head Athletic Trainer and to adhere to the established injury management guidelines which includes rehabilitation, reassessments and clearance before I am released to return to full participation. I understand that I must wear the proper equipment as dictated by the rules of the sport. I may also have to wear padding or braces as indicated by the Head Athletic Trainer or Team Physician. Failure to do so may put me at risk for further injury. By my signature on this document, I hereby release and hold harmless the Board of Trustees of Kentucky Wesleyan College, by and through Kentucky Wesleyan College, its officers, faculty, and employees from any and all liability that may arise from my participation in intercollegiate athletics. I further agree to not sue, or otherwise assert claims against Kentucky Wesleyan College regarding my participation in intercollegiate athletics.

I understand that it is my responsibility to report all injuries and illnesses to my athletic trainer and/or team physician.
I have read and understand the NCAA Concussion Fact Sheet on www.ncaa.org/health-safety
After reading the NCAA Concussion Fact Sheet, I am aware of the following information:
A concussion is a brain injury, which I am responsible for reporting to my team physician or athletic trainer.
A concussion can affect my ability to perform everyday activities and affect reaction time, balance, sleep and classroom performance.
You cannot see a concussion, but you might notice some of the symptoms right away. Other symptoms can show up hours or days after the injury.
If I suspect a teammate has a concussion, I am responsible for reporting the injury to my team physician or athletic trainer.
I will not return to play in a game or practice if I have received a blow to the head or body that results in concussion-related symptoms until I have been cleared by my team physician or athletic trainer.
Should I sustain a concussion, I will not take ANY medication unless told to do so by my team physician or athletic trainer. This includes but not limited to Tylenol, Advil or Aleve.
Following a concussion, the brain needs time to heal. You are more likely to have a repeat concussion if you return to play before your symptoms resolve.
In rare cases, repeat concussions can cause permanent brain damage and even death.
Upon arrival to Kentucky Wesleyan College, the Owensboro Health Athletic Training staff will conduct concussion baseline testing during the On Campus Pre-participation Physical Examination. Should I receive a concussion, the results of test will be used as a supplemental assessment tool evaluate their progress in healing and return to play status with the team physician making the final decision. Please see the KWC Athletic Training Staff with any questions.

I acknowledge and agree that all future injuries, medical/dental/mental problems, ailments, complaints, re-injuries, and aggravations of old injuries must be immediately reported to the team Athletic Training certified staff member, Team Physician or the campus health/mental health staff no matter how minor or insignificant I may deem them to be. I understand that it is my responsibility to report ALL injuries and illnesses to the Kentucky Wesleyan College Athletic Training Staff including, but not limited to, signs and symptoms of concussion.

Kentucky Wesleyan College Athletic Training Insurance requirements 2019 – 2020
Please read all information carefully. It is imperative that you understand and provide accurate and complete information regarding your son/daughters medical insurance coverage.
Medical Insurance Requirements: Parents, please keep for your information
All student athletes must provide proof of primary insurance that provides coverage for and is payable in the State of Kentucky. Please check with your insurance company and be familiar with your companies’ out-of-state and traveling policies. Kentucky Wesleyan College does NOT offer school insurance for student/athletes to purchase. Therefore, each athlete must have personal insurance. Should your son/daughter age out or there is a lapse in your primary insurance, you will need to provide proof of another valid insurance. The Athletic Training Department must have proof of insurance before the student-athlete will be allowed to participate in any conditioning, team related conditioning, practice, competition or any team associated activities. Proof of insurance can be supplied by providing one copy, front and back, of the primary insurance card. Please complete the following Student Athlete Insurance Information Form to follow. Athletes will be held out of all practices and games until the Athletic Training Department has proof of valid Medical Insurance.
Kentucky Wesleyan College has a “secondary” or “excess” insurance plan i.e., KWC Comprehensive Athletic Insurance Plan. This will go into effect AFTER your primary insurance has paid their benefits up to $1500.00. First, your primary insurance will be billed. Secondly, after payment of $1500.00 has been met by your insurance, the Kentucky Wesleyan College (deductible $1500.00) will then collect the remaining balances. Remaining balances are provided by the student-athlete bringing in the “explanation of benefits” (EOB) and bills sent from your primary insurance company to the KWC Insurance Coordinator, Bill Hume. Copays from your primary insurance will be paid by providing dated, itemized receipts to the KWC Insurance Coordinator for reimbursement. This form must be completed. You will not be allowed to participate until the Athletic Training Staff has received this information. **If you are an International Student-Athlete please be sure that you have travel insurance that is valid in the USA.**

Should I age out or my insurance changes, it is my responsibility to notify KWC Athletic Training of the new policy information.
I understand that my insurance policy must cover athletic injuries that occur in the State of Kentucky.
I understand that Kentucky Wesleyan College carries a secondary insurance policy. This policy requires the athlete’s primary insurance policy to pay to the limits of its ability.

I understand that it is my sole responsibility to update the KWC Athletic Training Staff of any changes that occur to my insurance coverage.
I understand that in the event that I do not have insurance at the time of athletic injury (aging out or lapse in insurance coverage) and I fail to notify the KWC Athletic Training Staff of such, I will be held responsible for all bills and costs incurred.
I understand that under no circumstances is the KWC Department of Athletics responsible for medical bills, injuries or illnesses NOT incurred during intercollegiate athletic practices or games. The secondary (excess) insurance coverage provided by Kentucky Wesleyan College is for ATHLETIC- RELATED INJURIES ONLY. Therefore, only those injuries sustained while participating in a supervised practice or event will be covered. This does include off-season conditioning programs, but NOT include events such as summer leagues, intramurals, pick-up games, recreational activities, etc.
I understand that if I use an outside physician, physical therapist, or any other healthcare provider without PRIOR notification and written approval through the KWC Athletic Training Staff; the Department of Athletics and the Athletic Training Staff is NOT responsible for any incurred bills. This includes Second Opinions.
I understand that if I do NOT wear required equipment (mouthpiece, head gear, helmet, ETC) and I suffer an injury, the Department of Athletics and Athletic Training Staff will NOT be responsible for medical expenses related to the injury.
I understand that I have ONE year from the date of initial injury, to complete all medical treatment for that injury. KWC will not be responsible for any medical costs after the first year.

I understand that I must report all injuries to the Athletic Training Staff immediately. If injured at an away competition with no traveling ATC present; I must report the injury to the coach.

Kentucky Wesleyan College Athletic TrainingMedical History Form 2019-2020
Previous Injury or Illness:
I have answered each question on the Medical History Form honestly and accurately. I understand that during my Pre-Participation Physical, it is my responsibility to fully disclose all pre-existing injuries and/or medical conditions. Failure to report these injuries or illnesses during the Pre-Participation Physical will relieve Kentucky Wesleyan College of any and all liability in the event that I, the student-athlete, receive an injury to the same or related areas, provided the original injury was a contributing factor. Any diagnostics required by the team physician to clear me, the student-athlete, for athletic participation will be my responsibility and is not the responsibility of the KWC Athletic Training Room or KWC Athletic Department. The Athletic Training staff will review all injuries and illnesses on the Medical History Form. I understand that if any medical condition or illness is discovered during the PPE, I will NOT be allowed to practice or compete until cleared by our team physician. The team physician will have the final say when determining an athletes’ status for participation in athletics and returning to sport. I understand the KWC Athletic Training Room and Athletic Department will NOT pay the cost to repair any previous injury incurred prior to reporting for any athletic program or preseason camps.
Injury/Illness Policy I understand that all injuries and illnesses are to be reported to the Athletic Training Staff for treatment or referral on the day of occurrence, or within 24 hours of injury if traveling. It is my responsibility to report all injuries to the athletic trainer not the coach. The KWC Athletic Training Staff is a part of the hospital; all referrals to the team physician are arranged through the Athletic Training Staff ONLY. Emergency medical treatment is the only exception.
I understand that any Student-athlete obtaining medical services outside of Kentucky Wesleyan College’s team physician must obtain permission from their Athletic Trainer responsible for their sport prior to the date of service. Failure to obtain permission releases Kentucky Wesleyan College from any and all financial liability for services which then becomes the student-athletes responsibility.
