Who can see your viewing activity?
Are you planning for all varsity sports to be competing more or less as normal in the fall
My son is interested in joining crew - he hasn't done crewing before. What does he need to do to get on a the team?
Will dining halls be open and available to students arriving early?
Would you mind identifying your sport?
Would you be live streaming every game?
Will spectators be welcome to indoor sporting meets/games?
Is it common for athletes to find another team mate as a room mate? More common with team mates or non-team mates?
Football- is all equipment provided? Example: cleats
what are you hearing/requiring from schools you are competing with and/or traveling to?
Will spectators be allowed at games and, if so, will vaccination proof be required?
Can you please provide more information on what the athletes need to bring to campus when they move in on August 18th for training? Bedding? linen? etc
Is there a person that student athletes can go to in order to help find jobs on campus that will work around the athletes sport seasons?
Are there certain/specific resources that student athletes receive?
They said that the dining halls would be limited and more grab and go. is there an update to this?
will our athletes be required to practice indoors with a mask? what if a child has asthma?
are tutors available for student athletes? is there a team advisor who helps reconcile possible conflicts with TA sessions, labs, etc?
How do dining hours in dorms work with practice times? are they open later?
When will track & field athletes be expected to be on campus for practice over winter break?
are there microwaves or ovens available in the dorms? my daughter is in Baker
Will the room that students move into for preseason be their room for the year?
Is there an indoor season in the winter or spring? Or, they will take a rest until next fall?
Does MIT have Name Image and Likeness guidelines? Do you have anyone working with student athletes on NIL?
Are student/athletes allowed to choose their preferred footwear and individual equipment (i.e. bats and gloves for softball) in spite of the Nike apparel contract?
Does anyone have experience with the temporary room assignments at Simmons? Should we unpack everything when we get there? Given the temporary assignment and roommate mixer then reassignment, we are not clear on how much time to spend unpacking and moving in.
How does it work for massage and physio therapy? Do students have access to MIT provided athletic support? Is it covered by the student’s health insurance?
Our daughter did not get placed with the roommate she requested (they both requested each other)--the 2 girls that requested each other are placed in the same dorm--from what I understand there is still may be an opportunity for them to be roommates this year by changing during the week kids are move in? Could you please explain this process.
Do swimmer and waterpolo team mates need to take the MIT swim test
Do any sports' practices clash with freshman orientation?
Are towels provided at DAPER (specifically for swimmers for swim team practice)
Is drinking water readily available in dorms for a refillable bottle or should I send my student athlete with a Brita?
Is the competition schedule set for the swim and dive team? Are most meets during the weekend?
How many student athletes will be showing up early for fall pre-season?
May I ask if you ladies do your own laundry and if so how often? Does each dorm have laundry machines and are they free?
Does the student need to bring a lamp to the dorm?
Is it possible to check our son into his hall (New Vasser) before his sport checkin? We arrive this Tuesday, football check-in is 10 AM Wednesday..
How do we watch this later?
Does MIT cover any necessary expenses for any away games/matches/events (transportation, food, lodging, etc.)?
Is there laundry service for jersey?
What does "Covid pass" mean and do we need one on campus?
are there dedicated lockers and dehumidifying areas in the sailing pavilion
Will parents be allowed into dorms during move in to help set up (given COVID).
Football: What determines if a team will stay overnight for an away game? Do all players travel to away games?
what limitations will be on athletes who are not vaccinated for religious or medical reasons? such as dining halls. can they eat in a dining hall?
