- All forms required by Haverford College's Health Services
Note: Your Physical Exam must have been done after February 1, 2023 in accordance with the NCAA's requirements for varsity athletes.
- Sickle Cell Requirement
The NCAA requires that all athletes confirm their Sickle Cell status. In most cases for students born in the United States, this testing has been done at birth and results should be available via the hospital or pediatrician. In the case where this prior testing cannot be obtained, or students born abroad where testing was not done, a blood test that confirms Sickle Cell status is required and the result should be uploaded into the HaverHealth Portal.
- Athletics Orthopedic History Form
This form should be completed by every First-Year that plans to try out for a varsity sport at Haverford College. It will be sent to the Haverford email account of all incoming First-Years by the Head Athletic Trainer. Once completed, it should be uploaded into the HaverHealth Portal for review.
- Informed Consent
This form needs to be completed each year by any student participating in varsity athletics and uploaded into the Health Portal. It will be sent to the Haverford email account of all incoming First-Years by the Head Athletic Trainer. Once completed, it should be uploaded into the HaverHealth Portal for review.
Deadline: August 1, 2023
All requirements for varsity athletes should be completed by August 1, 2023. Failure to meet this deadline could result in a delay in the student-athlete’s participation.
