Intercollegiate athletes at Yale may be drug tested by the NCAA, as described in the Yale Student-Athlete's Handbook. Please be aware of the following:
1. DO NOT take medications of any kind without first clearing
them with an athletic trainer or the team physician. Many
prescription AND over-the-counter medications contain banned
substances. A positive test for ANY banned substance will result in
your becoming ineligible for participation.
2. Nutritional supplements have been known to cause positive drug tests. The list of ingredients may be incomplete. Be extremely careful about utilizing these products.
If you have any questions, you may contact any of the athletic training staff, team physicians, or Yale's NCAA compliance office.
Additional information may be found at the NCAA's Drug Testing Program.
