- Sickle Cell Trait Test - The
NCAA has recently passed legislation that requires all new student-athletes to
obtain the results of sickle cell trait testing prior to that athlete being
cleared to participate in any type of workout, including but not limited to;
physical testing, cardio workouts, strength training, agility workouts, skills
practice and ‘tryouts’.
student-athletes must provide Boston College Sports Medicine with written
results of the sickle cell trait test.
In the United States, all children are tested at birth. Results of this test may be on file at the
birth hospital, on birth records, or perhaps with a pediatrician.
Sickle cell trait testing is NOT usually part of the normal immunization
the results of the testing at birth cannot be located, the student-athlete MUST undergo a simple blood test
to obtain the sickle cell trait test results.
SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE RESULTS OF THE TESTING DO NOT CHANGE THE STUDENT-ATHLETE’S PLAYING STATUS. The information
assists Sports Medicine, Strength & Conditioning, and Coaches in ensuring
the safety of the student-athlete.
