Trent Excalibur Varsity Student-Athlete Orientation Process
Please note that all steps are mandatory for participation as a member of the Excalibur Varsity Programs. Failure to complete steps as outlined can result in prohibiting student-athletes from training and/or competition.
Where it is indicated that something is available ‘Online through MyTrent’, it will be under ‘Services’ > ‘Athletics’. These online forms as well as those forms that must be printed and handed in as hard copies (Under 18 forms) will be available on Friday July 22nd, 2016.
- 2 weeks (10 business days) prior to the first day of their respective sport’s training camp/tryouts, student-athletes are required to complete in full and submit the following forms:
- Athlete Information Form (MyTrent);
- Medical Questionnaire (Online through MyTrent)
- Medical Questionnaire will be reviewed by Trent Health in Motion (THiM) within 48 hours of receipt (may take longer pending forms received). Athletes may be flagged for follow up. If a student-athlete is flagged for follow-up then it is mandatory that they make themselves available for in-person assessment by THiM and/or provide clearance from a physician prior to the first day of their respective training camp/try-out
- We are asking any student-athlete that may have a pre-existing, current or recent condition or injury to be prepared with clearance from a physician ahead of time. This could save all parties valuable time.
