- Can I send a physical instead of getting a doctor’s signature?
Physicals that have been completed within one year of the last day of your camp session may be submitted in lieu of a doctor’s signature on the waiver. Physicals can be uploaded to your account, sent by email to mbasketballmail - @ - gators.ufl.edu, by fax to 352-377-8483 or by mail to Men’s Basketball Camp, PO Box 14485, Gainesville, FL 32604.
- Do I need medical insurance to attend camp?
YES! Each player must have medical insurance. The camp carries an EXCESS medical insurance policy to cover medical expenses for injuries/accidents which occur in the course of camp activities. Medical expenses, including any deductibles, which are declined for payment through the camper’s personal insurance and/or through the excess policy become the personal responsibility of the camper’s parents/guardians
If a player doesn’t have medical insurance, they can purchase insurance for camp at Floridian Quote
- May parents watch?
Parents are welcome and encouraged to come and watch their children. Although there is not a designated section to sit and watch, feel free to sit in any area that will not be disruptive to camp activity.
- How are campers placed on teams?
Campers are placed on teams according to age, size and ability. Our priority in forming teams is to have balanced competition. Therefore, we cannot honor team assignment requests. In some cases, players are “traded” from their original team assignment to better balance the competition.
