In January, 2013, the NCAA passed legislation requiring sickle cell trait testing for all incoming student-athletes beginning in the fall of 2013. All new (including transfer student-athletes) will have to show proof of sickle cell testing or sign a waiver for sickle cell testing. Returning student-athletes are required to have this done by fall 2014 but we are asking that everyone get this done as soon as possible.
Below are the following forms:
Phone numbers for the newborn testing center in each state
Verification of testing form
Information on getting results and/or getting tested
If you have any questions, please contact the compliance officer, Kiki Jacobs, or head athletic trainer, Barclay Dugger.
