All returning and first year athletes must complete the pre-participation medical on Players Health prior to participation for the 2022-2023 Wesmen season.

First year athletes or athletes that have been away from the Wesmen program for a year or more; must complete the pre-participation medical AND schedule an appointment with your physician to complete the Physician's Assessment form.  *Athletes are responsible for all physician fees required to complete the Physician's Assessment form.

Dr. Oliver Leslie will be available on select dates in July and August in the Athletic Therapy Centre to administer medicals, this will be billed through your provincial health card and there will not be any further fees associated to completing the Physician's Assessment form.

If you have not received an invitation to Players Health for the upcoming season, please email athletictherapy@uwinnipeg.ca for registration questions or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Leslie.

Anti-doping Information

All CIS athletes are required to follow the anti-doping regulations set by the Canadian Centre for Ethics and Sport (CCES).  Their website is www.cces.ca.  The CCES has online courses designed for both first year athletes as well as returning athletes that are a requirement for eligibility as a CIS athlete. A doping control seminar will be conducted in early September by the Head Athletic Therapist in order for athletes to remain current on the rules set forth by the CCES.

The doping control seminar, as well as both the online CCES course and the medical (for first year athletes) or the health questionnaire (for returning athletes), must be completed in order to be eligible for practice and competition as a Wesmen athlete.

If current or prospective Wesmen athletes have any questions please call the Head Athletic Therapist, Jeff Billeck at (204) 258-2969 or email to j.billeck@uwinnipeg.ca

The CCES course invitation and instructions will be emailed either by the Athletic Therapy Centre or your Coach near the end of August/ early September.
