- To use the fitness center a physical is mandatory and costs €20. The doctor will be available starting from Orientation, according to a schedule that will be provided by the Athletics Department. Appointments must be made with the Athletics Staff only, during orientation at the Athletics Table located in the Tiber Café, and after Orientation at the JCU Fitness Center, located in the Gianicolo Residence.
- A competitive physical is required to participate in any of the JCU varsity sports teams except for Coed Basketball and Coed Volleyball (for students only enrolled for Fall 2017 semester). The competitive physical is about €40. It includes a urine test and a general check-up. The athletics department will arrange specific appointments once the student has made the team.
*Students that want to tryout for a varsity team are not required to get a basic physical until they know if they have made the team or not.
