NO participation with teams are allowed until the physical has been received and reviewed by the medical staff.

Rugby and Ice Hockey Clubs are afforded the opportunity to participate in concussive baseline testing using ImPACT. Participants in these sports are strongly encouraged to take the ImPACT test by the Bates Athletics Department. ImPACT baseline testing will be utilized as one of the components of return to play following diagnosis of concussion. Rugby and Ice Hockey Club athletes that are interested in taking the ImPACT Baseline Test need to contact the assigned Athletic Trainer for that sport to schedule an appointment.

Students participating in the following club sports (equestrian, fencing, sailing, men’s volleyball, ultimate frisbee, water polo) must sign the Annual Health Update at the pre-season meeting held with the Club Sport Director.

Any Club Sport athlete needing to contact an athletic trainer for concerns with respect to club sport participation should contact the appropriate athletic trainer.
