It is the student-athlete's responsibilities to wear any required protective equipment such as mouth guards, helmets, and any other pads required by their sport. However, equipment inspection should become a daily routine of practice. Student-athletes abusing equipment will be required to purchase a replacement and will not participate until one is in place.
Any equipment (i.e. crutches, ace wraps, splints, slings, etc.) given to a student-athlete by the Sports Medicine Staff must be returned to the Sports Medicine Office or a charge may be placed on the student's account.
