Varsity Athlete Requirements
Please Note: Updated information for the Class of 2024 will be available in early June. Customs Week begins Wednesday, August 26, 2020. However, we encourage students and families to wait to make travel arrangements until mid-June as some students will have earlier move-in dates due to participation in Pre-Customs programs or pre-season athletics.
Haverford College sponsors the following varsity sports: M/W Soccer, Field Hockey, Volleyball, M/W Cross Country, M/W Basketball, M/W Squash, M/W Fencing, M/W Track & Field, M/W Lacrosse, Baseball, Softball, M/W Tennis, and Cricket.
Further information about these requirements will be sent out through the head coaches of each of our sports.
- All forms required by Haverford College's Health Services
- Pre-participation Physical Exam
Our form will be provided by your sport's head coach. Once completed, upload this form to the HaverHealth Portal. Note: Your Physical Exam must have been done after February 1, 2019 in accordance with the NCAA's requirements.
- Sickle Cell Requirement
This is a 2-Part NCAA requirement that Haverford College requires from all of its varsity athletes. Complete the educational portion by logging in to Moodle using your Haverford username and password. Be sure to advance all the way through the class until you see confirmation that it is complete. Upload either a blood test confirming your Sickle Cell status or the waiver found in the Moodle class to your HaverHealth Portal. In many cases this testing has been done at birth and results should be available via the hospital or pediatrician.
- Online Medical History for Athletics
This is a separate requirement from Health Services' medical history. Fill out the Initial Medical History and Confidential Informed Consent form.
- ImPACT Baseline Test
ImPACT is a software program that Haverford College subscribes to in order to assist in our management of sports-related concussions that are suffered by our student-athletes. By completing a baseline test prior to an injury, we will be best able to facilitate your return to play/participation should you suffer a concussion during your career at Haverford College. Learn more about ImPACT. Test-taking information will be sent through your sport's head coach.
Deadline: July 22, 2019
All requirements for varsity athletes should be completed by July 22, 2019. Failure to meet this deadline could result in a delay in the student-athlete’s participation.
