Athletic Training Department

The Cuyamaca College Athletic Training Department is operated and staffed by two certified athletic trainers, Jamie Adams and Lyman Connolly, as well as athletic training students. Adams and Connolly are both certified through the National Athletic Trainers’ Association and oversee the treatment and medical attention given to all Cuyamaca student-athletes. The athletic training students are upper division students from San Diego State University. The Cuyamaca Athletic Training Room is a clinical site for the San Diego State (SDSU) Accredited Athletic Training Education Program, allowing athletic training students hands-on experience in the field of sports medicine.

Insurance Information

At the beginning of the season, athletes are asked to provide proof of primary insurance, if applicable. A copy (front and back) of the card may be requested at any time. In addition, athletes are required to fill out their insurance information on Sportsware (our online database and injury tracking software).

All athletes are covered under the Cuyamaca College's Student & Athletic Accident insurance policy. The policy is a secondary policy so if the athlete has primary insurance those insurance benefits will be billed first and exhausted before the secondary will make any payments. In addition, it covers only injuries and illness which occur during organized practice, competition and individual workouts for Cuyamaca athletics.

If an athlete requires medical attention the injury must be reported immediately to Athletic Training Staff at Cuyamaca College so injury can be documented and a claim form can be filed. In order to use the secondary insurance through Cuyamaca College ALL doctor/facility/office visits must be approved by a Certified Athletic Trainer BEFORE going to appointment to ensure athlete is only going to in-network provider for care. Any failure by athlete to gain prior authorization for doctor/facility regardless of insurance may impact the financial responsibility of athlete.

In-season athletes sustaining sports related injury- HMO patients will be referred back to their primary care physician/network for evaluation and then further treatment and referrals will be based upon their own network standards. PPO athletes will be primarily referred to one of our team doctors with the option to use their own primary care or MD of their choice. Athletes with no insurance will have use the Student Insurance act as a primary insurance and must follow the steps above for PPO athlete.

Non-traditional season athletes sustaining sports related injury: Only athletic injuries sustained during an activities class will be seen by the staff and only as time allows without conflicting with in-season athlete care. The athlete must be enrolled in the class and have a current physical on file to be seen in the athletic training room and may be referred to the student health center.
