Training & Sports Medicine

Athletic training fundamentals are taught to high school students in an environment built on teamwork and responsibility. The students learn all forms of taping and wrapping, basic first aid techniques, become certified in CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) and the use of an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator). They receive instructions in OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) standards for “blood-born pathogens” as well as medical terminology and anatomy. On the field/court, athletic trainers assist in practice and game preparation. In the training room, students utilize their skills in taping and first aid, preparing first aid kits, and assisting in different forms of rehabilitation as well as stocking supplies.
