What information should be on an athlete's emergency contact form?

An emergency contact form should always include:
  • Complete information for the athlete: Name, date of birth, address, phone number, family doctor, allergies, and medications.
  • Complete information for the emergency contact: Name, relationship to athlete, address, and phone numbers (home, work, and cell). It's also a good idea to have a second emergency contact if the first contact cannot be reached.
  • Complete information on insurance: Name of company, address, phone number, policy and group numbers.
