Eligibility Packet

All Northwest University athletes are required to complete the following forms before sport practice starts.  You will not be allowed to start practice until these forms have been cleared by the Athletic Trainers.

ALL FORMS ARE WRITEABLE PDFS. PLEASE DOWNLOAD AND SAVE TO YOUR COMPUTER AND THEN SEND THEM VIA EMAIL. Please refrain from copy & pasting to Word Documents as this messes up the formatting and the forms do not come out the same.

New Athletes Medical Eligibility Packet (New and Transfer Student-Athletes Only)

Included in this packet are the following forms in order: Emergency Contact, Insurance, and Medical Questionnaire.

Emergency Contact Information

In the case of an emergency the Athletics Department needs to have accurate information about each student athlete. The completed form will be included in the athlete’s file and also in the medical bag that travels with the team.

Insurance

Northwest University provides an ‘excess’ coverage for all students, whether participating in intercollegiate athletics or events not sponsored by the Athletics Department. Each athlete must have their own primary insurance coverage in order to be eligible to participate in events (including practice or games). The completed form will also be included in the athlete’s file as well as in the medical bag that travels with them.
