V. Sickle Cell Trait Status

The NCAA is mandating that its member institutions verify sickle cell trait status of every student-athlete beginning August 1, 2022. Although there are no requirements limiting participation in sports by student-athletes who have the sickle cell trait, the NCAA requires Athletic Departments to identify each athlete’s status to better educate and identify high-risk student-athletes. All student-athletes at Manchester University are required to provide documentation demonstrating the presence or absence of sickle cell trait. Please have your healthcare provider complete this form by doing a sickle cell solubility test or by documenting results from a previous test.
