Items such as braces, walking boots, crutches, etc. are commonly loaned out by the athletic trainers to injured student-athletes. In the event one is borrowed, student-athletes will be asked for fill out a sign-out form acknowledging that they received the item in the listed condition and will return it at the end of the sports season. Once the item is no longer needed or the season has ended, the item must be returned to the athletic training room. If the item is needed beyond the end of a season, arrangements must be made with an athletic trainer and will be decided on a case-by-case basis. If you do not return it or it is significantly damaged (normal wear and tear is expected) the student-athlete may be charged for a replacement.
