Learn more about this partnership from our Head Athletic Trainer, Melody Mohebbi, ATC.

The health and wellness of our student-athletes continues to be a priority for us. Our partnership with Vivature will enable us to reinvest into our Athletic Training facility to further enhance the quality of care we provide to our student-athletes.

Student-athletes are not allowed to participate in any capacity until this entire process is completed.

Athletic Training, Sports Medicine and Injuries

Athletic training is practiced by athletic trainers, health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities. Students who want to become certified athletic trainers must earn a degree from an accredited athletic training curriculum. Accredited programs include formal instruction in areas such as injury/illness prevention, first aid and emergency care, assessment of injury/illness, human anatomy and physiology, therapeutic modalities, and nutrition.

  • Athletic training is not the same profession as personal training. And, certified athletic trainers work with more than just athletes – they can be found just about anywhere that people are physically active.

To become certified athletic trainers, students must graduate with bachelors or masters degree from an accredited professional athletic training education program and pass a comprehensive test administered by the Board of Certification. Once certified, they must meet ongoing continuing education requirements in order to remain certified. More information can be found on the National Athletic Trainer’s Association website.

MEET OUR TRAINERS

  • Athletic Trainers Melody Mohebbi and Coreyon Edwards provide injury prevention, recognition, evaluation, immediate care, and rehabilitation for all of St. John Bosco's student/athletes.
