Injury and Concussion Information
Injuries are inherent to sports and can happen to any player regardless of age, skill level or conditioning. Participation in any NKU Campus Recreation program, including Intramural Sports is voluntary. NKU, Campus Recreation and the Intramural Sports program are not liable for injuries suffered by participants. Participants should be in good health before participating and consider obtaining some type of medical insurance to cover any potential medical expenses from injuries. If you are injured during an intramural contest, notify the IM Supervisor on duty for assistance. Supervisors are trained in basic 1st aid and can contact Emergency Medical Services if further assistance is needed. Participants assume liability for any costs associated with Emergency Medical Services. Campus Recreation reserves the right to remove players from competition after an injury. After an injury, it is recommended that participants seek out medical care from a licensed practitioner and are cleared to return before resuming any sporting activities.
Concussions can happen in any sport. Please refer to the CDC website listed below to learn more about:
