Forms

Athletic Health forms are now located online through a program called ATS (Athletic Trainer System).  You will need to open the “ATS Login Instruction Sheet” and follow the directions to set up an account and complete all athletic health forms.

You will also need a pre-season physical which can be performed by a doctor of your choosing.  Our physical form, or one exactly like it, must be used or we will reject your physical. The physical form can be downloaded here or is located on the ATS website once you create an account.

If you have questions or need additional information please contact the Head Athletic Trainer at meredith.atwood@covenant.edu
