Athletic Department
Student-Athlete Administrative and Health Forms

All forms must be completed and submitted to the appropriate office at least one week in advance in order to be cleared to tryout.

Welcome to Hudson Valley Community College Athletics! There are several forms that must be completed prior to practicing and competing on an intercollegiate team. Shown below are the instructions and a link for each form. All forms must be completed fully and must be legible. Also, please review the intercollegiate athletic eligibility criteria for student-athletes.

Important Note: Please be aware that when submitting paperwork, you are verifying that all information you provide is accurate and truthful. The information will be maintained by Hudson Valley Community College and the NJCAA as requested. Any individuals submitting false or inaccurate information will be subject to disciplinary action including, but not limited to, dismissal from the respective athletic program(s) and legal action. Per Article V, Section 1.F of the NJCAA by-laws, any student-athlete who falsifies any academic and/or athletic participation record shall be ineligible for further competition in an NJCAA member college at any time. The scope and complexity of NJCAA legislation precludes complete coverage on this Web site. We suggest, therefore, that you forward additional questions to the Director of Athletics.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your coach or the Athletic Department at (518) 629-7328 or athletics@hvcc.edu. For questions regarding the health forms, please contact Head Athletic Trainer Keith Thomas at (518) 629-7373.

  1. Candidate Questionnaire
    This form must be completed each year and for each sport of participation. If you are a transfer student, please be sure your official transcripts have been submitted to the Admissions office. Once completed, this form should be submitted to the Athletic Department (McDonough Complex room 219).

  2. Statement of Whereabouts
    If you enrolled in college immediately following high school and have had no gap in enrollment you may skip this section.

    Per NJCAA policy, if you are NOT enrolled in college immediately after high school, or if there are any times thereafter for which you are not enrolled in college (exclusive of summer sessions), we must have documentation of your whereabouts. Please provide a typed statement, not to exceed one (1) page, detailing where you were living and what you were doing for those periods during which you were not enrolled in college (i.e. employed, unemployed, etc.).

    This statement MUST be typed, dated and contain your name both printed legibly and signed at the bottom. We cannot determine your athletic eligibility until this statement is received. Once completed, this form should be submitted to the Athletic Department (McDonough Complex room 219).

  3. Semi-professional Participation
    This form must be completed each year and for each sport of participation. NJCAA by-laws prohibit any student-athlete from participating if they have previously been affiliated with any semi-professional team. Please print your name and initial where requested. Once completed, this form should be submitted to the Athletic Department (McDonough Complex room 219).

  4. Code of Conduct
    These guidelines are designed to alert you, as a student-athlete, to the behavior expected of you, and to the potential impact that your behavior may have on your status as a student-athlete.

  5. Fundraising Agreement
    This form must be completed each year and for each sport of participation. All monies fundraised as a team are non-refundable regardless of your status with the team. Once completed, this form should be submitted to the Athletic Department (McDonough Complex room 219).

  6. Assumption of Risk/Hold Harmless
    This form must be completed each year and for each sport of participation. If you are under the age of 18, your parent/legal guardian must also sign. Once completed, this form should be submitted to the Athletic Department (McDonough Complex room 219).

  7. Health Questionnaire
    This form must be completed each year and for each sport of participation. It is imperative that you fill this out completely and accurately. You do NOT need to have a physician complete this form.

    The insurance portion of the questionnaire details the medical coverage that you will have in effect during the academic year. It is important that you notify the Athletic Trainer if your health coverage changes during the year. It is especially important to mark if you are in an HMO/PPO. In the event you need to see a physician, failing to complete that portion may cause you to be held responsible for the bill.

    It is required that you submit a copy of both sides of your insurance card to the Athletic Trainer. Please staple the Health Questionnaire and the copy of your insurance card together! Don’t forget to sign the bottom of page two! Once completed, this form should be mailed to:

    Keith Thomas, Head Athletic Trainer
    Hudson Valley Community College
    McDonough Complex Room 173
    80 Vandenburgh Avenue
    Troy, NY 12180

  8. Pre-participation Physical Evaluation
    This form is for first-year athletes or those who have had a gap in enrollment only! The first page can be completed by the student-athlete. Don’t forget to sign the bottom of page one! The second page must be completed and signed by a physician. Once completed, this form should be submitted to:

    Director of College Health Services
    Hudson Valley Community College
    Fitzgibbons Hall Room 146
    80 Vandenburgh Avenue
    Troy, NY 12180

    Falsifying a signature is forgery and illegal. Any student-athlete who falsifies a document and commits forgery will be subject to the penalties of state and federal law.
