  Athlete Services


Athletic Training Services
The Athletic training services at Neumann College are provided by Riddle Memorial Hospital in Media, PA. The Athletic Training Staff is medically supervised by Team Physicians. Consultants in orthopedics, podiatry, dentistry and pharmacy are available to the program. All medical care will be performed under the auspices of the team physician. Any need for outside consultations will be determined by the certified athletic trainers and the team physicians.

The athletic training staff seeks to provide quality healthcare with respect to the Franciscan Tradition and the mission of Neumann College. The goal is to promote a positive atmosphere for healing while valuing the inherent dignity of human beings regardless of individual differences.

    Injury Reporting Policy and Procedure

    1. All injuries and illnesses related to Neumann College athletics must be reported to the athletic training staff.
    2. An athlete may go to the hospital for care if there is an emergency AND:
      1. the training room is closed
      2. the athlete is traveling with an athletic team
      3. an athletic trainer is unavailable
    3. An athlete who needs to see a physician for an athletically related injury or illness must be referred by the Certified Athletic Trainers. Athletes who arbitrarily see a physician without a referral from a certified Athletic Trainer may have to assume the financial responsibility for any bills incurred.

    Insurance Policy and Procedures

    1. All students participating in intercollegiate athletics MUST have primary insurance coverage. Proof of insurance MUST be on file in the athletic training room PRIOR to any athletic participation.
    2. Students are responsible for presenting current proof of insurance yearly.
    3. Students are responsible for notifying the Head Athletic Trainer of any and all changes in insurance status (plan change, primary physician changes, discontinuation of coverage [due to loss of job, age limitations, etc.], etc.)
    4. Claims are to be processed in the following manner:
      1. A member of the Athletic Training staff will assist the student with completion of a claim form from the college's secondary insurance carrier.
      2. The medical claim is first submitted to the athlete's primary insurance company.
      3. Once the claim has been accepted, denied or partially paid by the primary insurance the claim is then processed through the athletic department's insurance. The student is to provide the Athletic Trainer with the associated bills and the Explanation of Benefits statements from the primary insurance company.
      4. Athletes with an HMO, PPO, or HAP insurance will have to provide the name of their primary care physician on the Insurance Information Form. The athlete needs to understand that delays in their care may occur if they do not provide this information, and they may need to report to that primary care physician in the event of an injury.
      5. Athletes with pre-existing condition, or injuries that occur not as a direct result of varsity athletic competition, will NOT be covered by the athletic department's insurance policy. This is a regulation of the insurance company and not the athletic department.


    The athletic training service's main office is located in Living and Learning Center II. All treatments and therapy will be performed at the main office unless otherwise noted. There are two auxiliary rooms which are used for game day events (volleyball, basketball, ice hockey). One is located in the Bruder gymnasium and the other in Rink 3 at Ice Works Arena.
