Q: Can I put all of my roster information on 1 Excel sheet, or do I need to put each sport on a separate Tab?

A: Whichever is easiest for you

Q. How do I download the Athlete’s KONGiQ App?

A.

Q: For the Team Health Officer, what if I have multiple THO’s for multiple sports?  How do I submit multiple people? 

A: Enter each THO’s information and then indicate which sport(s) they are covering. We understand the THO is also subject to change.

Q. How do I download the ADMIN App for KONGiQ for our ATC’s and Team Health Officers?

A.

Q: Do I need to enter a dual sport athletes multiple times on the roster?

A: No. Enter the athlete’s name one time, but indicate that they are in multiple sports (Include the sports)

Q: Are the additional mandatory questions about Race, Hispanic/non-Hispanic and Pregnancy Status answered in the KONGiQ App or should they be on the initial upload? 

 A: These should be part of the initial upload.

Q: I don’t have our athlete’s Race/Hispanic non-Hispanic/Pregnancy Status information that is mandated, where would I find this?

A: If your athletes have gotten COVID-19 testing performed either on Campus or referred to a local Lab, that information is likely stored with the Campus Nurse or Lab Clinician in charge of their medical records. Depending on your local County and State Reporting Guidelines, they are typically required to report this information, along with the test results of the individuals, and therefore could quickly provide you with a spreadsheet containing this information.

Q: Do I really need to submit the other travel party info right now?

A: No. But you will need to have this in the system prior to arrival at a Championship event.

Q. My athletes have downloaded the KONGiQ App. Are there any additional training videos?

A. Scan (or click) QR Code for a quick “How To”

 

 

 

 

Q: Can people be added later or is it better to list everyone who could possibly travel with a team for the rest of the year?

A: You will be able to make changes to your travel party and their information (add, edit and remove).

Q: When it comes to international athletes, what information are you looking for or what do you recommend for these individuals who only have an international phone number and not a US phone number?

A: Please indicate that the student is an international athlete and make sure you have provided their email address. This will be required for Two-Party Authentication on the KONGiQ App.

Q: Can I just submit the teams I “think” are going to make it to a Championship and then if an unexpected team qualifies, add them later?

A: No. This is exactly what needs to be avoided. We will not be able to take last minute preparations and provide all the needed steps to ensure your Athletic Team Rosters are properly entered into the database. If someone is not in the database, they CANNOT BE TESTED, which means no participation.

Q: Do we have to provide the Bus Driver information now?

A: No. If you have this info, please provide it. If not, you can add it later when you do have this information.

Q: I am being asked for a “School Code”, what is this?

A: Double-check your website page you were on. There should not be a code required to drop your files. Click here for the HIPPA and FERPA secured dropbox link.

A: You only need to send us the following information:

  • Staff
  • Coaches
  • Athletic Trainers
  • Anyone else that may travel with the teams
  • Check your current rosters in NExTT and make sure they are complete
  • Submit the THO Information
  • Submit Race, Hispanic/Non-Hispanic, Pregnancy information on everyone.  Unknown is an acceptable answer.

Please work with your current Vivature Account Manager to help you.
