This time of year, I always like to remind college athletes and parents that any amount of participation in a game or contest against another team will count as a Season of Eligibility used.
The only way to get a season “over again” is if the student-athlete qualifies and is approved for a Medical Hardship Waiver.
A Medical Hardship Waiver is a possibility if your student-athlete incurs an injury or illness that is serious enough to be documented by a physician as “season-ending.”
There are also specific limitations for the number of contests that an athlete can participate in and still qualify for a hardship waiver.
Do you have questions about whether your student-athlete might qualify for a Medical Hardship Waiver? If so, click Book a Confidential Consultation, call our office at 913-766-1235 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
