Our Roles: To provide care for our athletes. We evaluate injuries, provide first aid, rehabilitation or taping/bracing as necessary. We are available for every athlete to see after school to address any problems they may be experiencing. We will make a decision on whether an athlete can participate and if their injury requires them to visit a doctor. We will not allow any athlete to continue to play if we believe they may harm themselves further.


What we expect from parents: We expect that we will be able to work together to care for your child. Please notify us if your athlete was injured during a practice, game or even at home so that we may be aware of the injury. This is preferable by email unless you need to talk to us directly. If you have questions regarding your athlete’s injury, please feel free to call, email or visit by appointment to discuss it further. 


If your athlete is seen by a doctor regarding an injury or other reason affecting their participation in sports, it is the responsibility of the parent to make sure that a note indicating your athlete’s current participation status and continuing needs are conveyed in writing by their doctor and brought to the athletic trainer in a timely manner.
