More Information about required Medical Paperwork
- Pre-Participation Physical Form
A pre-participation physical is required every two years - generally in your first and third year as a student-athlete. This form is required to be completed by your physician for first-years, transfers and those who did not participate during the 2013–14 season. In addition, this form is required to be completed by your physician for juniors, or any other enrolled upperclassmen that need to get a physical completed. Please upload your completed pre-participation physical through the 'Upload Documents' option within the Online Student Health (OSH) Portal.
Note! Your physical must be completed within the six months prior to your first practice (just a reminder that spring teams have non-traditional seasons in the fall).
- Under 18 Athletic Consent Form
This form is required for all varsity student-athletes under the age of 18. The form must be signed by your parent or guardian and submitted prior to participation. Please upload your completed under 18 athletic consent form through the ‘Upload Documents’ option within the Online Student Health (OSH) Portal.
The NCAA recommends that all NCAA Division III first-year, transfer, new to the program and returning junior student-athletes have knowledge of their sickle cell trait status. Babson recommends that all student-athletes who are unable to confirm their sickle cell trait status undergo sickle cell trait testing prior to participation in any intercollegiate athlete activity. Sickle cell trait testing in the form of a blood test can be done by the student-athlete’s personal primary care physician or by the Babson Health Center. IN EITHER CASE, THIS EXPENSE IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STUDENT-ATHLETE.
Please print the Sickle Cell Testing/Waiver and complete one of the following two statements:
1. That you have been tested for sickle cell trait
2. You waive the testing for sickle cell trait (must read fact sheet and view video)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- Where can I find the form that I need to give to my doctor? The link to the pre-participation physical form can be downloaded in PDF form from the athletics paperwork main page.
- My physical with my doctor is scheduled after July 1. What should I do? If your physical is scheduled with your doctor after July 1, you can send in the pre-participation physical form after it is completed. However, you must complete and submit all other paperwork by July 1.
- Do I need to get the PPE Form completed even if I did one for Health Services? Health Services and Sports Medicine operate separately, so you will need to complete all of the athletics paperwork in addition to fulfilling the requests from Health Services.
- Do you allow me to fax my paperwork? No, we do not have fax capabilities that can handle activity that demands an abundant amount of paperwork. You must either mail your information or e-mail as a PDF.
- I don't compete until the winter or spring seasons. Can I complete it later? All student-athletes must have their athletics paperwork submitted by July 1, no matter when they begin practice during the year.
- How do I know when all of my paperwork has been received by Sports Medicine? Your head coach will be receive updates over the summer and he/she can let you know your status.
- Who should I contact if I experience any injuries or changes in my medical needs over the summer? Please contact Rick Burr at firstname.lastname@example.org with any updates in your health status. The athletic trainers are 10-month employees and therefore do not work in the office over the summer months. Rick will forward the information to the appropriate team's athletic trainer.
- If I am a returning student-athlete, do I need to re-submit my proof of immunization to Health Services? No, this is only required during the first year of enrollment.
