Q: We have our own medical insurance—can we waive the athletic fee?
A: Unfortunately, the USM Athletic Fee cannot be waived (even if you only practiced for one day). The fee includes multiple insurances and other athletic-associated fees.

Our Secondary Insurance is just that—it comes secondary to your primary insurance.

Also included in the fee is accident insurance for injuries occurring on campus, catastrophic insurance, and various athletic expenses.

 

Q: How long is a physical good for, and can anyone give the physical?
A: The physical is good for two years, and must be performed by a Medical Doctor. Physicals administered by Chiropractors or Nurse Practitioners will not be accepted.

It is preferred if your Primary Care Physician in your hometown—who knows you best—gives you the physical.

The physical must be filled out on USM Pre-Participation Physical Form.

 

Q: What all needs to be completed in order to start practicing?
A: All forms must be completed and cleared by the Athletic Training Department in order to begin practicing and playing in games.

Everything is due by August 1.
