Story on the TAMUK Athletic Training Department
Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of Fall 2013 Freshman/Transfer Incoming Student-Athletes,
Welcome to Texas A&M University-Kingsville! We are excited to have you as a member of the athletics family and are committed to providing a safe environment for your son or daughter.
Student-athletes must be medically cleared by our team physicians in order to participate in any organized strength and conditioning or practice activities. To help expedite the pre-participation physical process we ask that you fill out the contact & medical information forms listed under the "New Student Athlete Forms" tab above and return them to Athletic Training Services by July 1. In addition, we ask that your son or daughter also provide a current physical completed by a general practitioner (family doctor, physician's assistant, and/or nurse practitioner). Your cooperation in providing accurate information will allow us to register your son or daughter in our system thereby making it easier and faster to schedule his or her physical examination. The sooner you can fill out this information for your son or daughter, the sooner we can receive it and make sure everything is in place for your son/daughter's pre-participation physical process.
Health Insurance Requirement for International Students?
All foreign students will be required to have health insurance coverage for the entire time they are students at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. Unfortunately that information has not yet been provided by our insurance company, but we will be sure to post it as soon as it comes available.
Please complete each of the forms ON YOUR COMPUTER and return via email to address listed below. We ask that you fill out the information on your computer, instead of by hand, so that the information is clear and legible to read. WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING HAND-WRITTEN FORMS.
Proper completion and submission of these forms in a timely manner is necessary in arranging for your son or daughter's physical examination when they arrive on campus. We thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.
*The information you are providing is just for Athletics and if you have given this same information before, we are requesting it because of confidentiality restrictions. Failure to return these completed forms as soon as possible will cause delays in your son/daughter's pre-participation physical exam and medical clearance to participate in athletics at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
If you have any questions, please contact the Assistant Athletic Trainers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
