The following resources are available to clubs to help ensure athlete
health and safety.
- Monday Morning Clinics
MIT Sports Medicine and MIT Medical cooperate to offer a Monday
morning clinic for evaluation of sports injuries sustained by MIT students.
For details on how to make an appointment, visit the Kasser Sports Medicine Center website.
- First Aid Kits
The Club Sports Council also provides first aid kits
to all clubs. We encourage clubs to ensure that first aid is available
at all practices and games. Please contact the CSC if your club
requires additional supplies. If you just need ice, the staff at the
duPont desk should be able to help you.
- Emergency Cards
For urgent injuries, we suggest that
athletes keep an Emergency
Card on hand. These cards also have numbers to call in case of an
automobile accident and other important contact information, so clubs
should bring them whenever they travel.
- Emergency Medical Technicians
Clubs may also arrange to have EMTs on hand for games via
MIT EMS. This is
required for some clubs, and the CSC can help pay for it. (The expenses
are categorized under Referees/Officials.)
- First Aid / CPR / AED classes
The Club Sports Council periodically arranges subsidized First Aid / CPR
classes for clubs. We will announce these opportunities to club
leaders when they become available.
For additional injury treatment options, please
consult with MIT Medical or your health care provider. Note that
neither MIT nor the club sports program, club athletes, or officers
are responsible for injuries sustained as a result of participation in
club sports; all participants are required to sign a
