Athletic insurance coverage for student athletes is for injuries sustained to W&L athletes while participating in our intercollegiate sports programs. Although a diligent effort is made by the Athletic Department to minimize the risk of athletic injuries, there is always a possibility of injury though participation in sports activities.
The insurance provided by the Athletic Department is SECONDARY. This means that the student must file a claim with his or her parents’ insurance BEFORE the Athletic Department policy can be utilized. This policy only covers injuries that occur during supervised athletic practices and competition (by coaches and/or athletic trainers).
The Student-Athletes Pre-participation forms must be completed before a student may participate in intercollegiate athletics. We also ask that you attach copies of all insurance and/or prescriptions cards (both front and back sides with co-pays marked). The form and insurance card photocopies must be completed and returned to Washington & Lee University, Athletic Training by August 1 of the upcoming school year in order for the athletic to qualify for participation in our intercollegiate sports and insurance programs.
Our athletes are expected to do the following with their insurance claims:
