NCAA Athletes and the California Newborn Screening Results for Sickle Cell Trait

The California Newborn Screening (NBS) Program has been screening all babies in California for sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait since February 27, 1990. These results will satisfy the NCAA requirement for college student athletes to have documentation of their sickle cell status.

 

Please note:

 *** It can take up to 30 days to process your request. If you need your results in less time, we recommend having a sickle cell trait test run by your physician.
 *** Results are only available for California births on or after 2/27/1990.
