Athletic Training

Every aspect of Athletic Training Services provided at St. John Bosco High School helps to ensure our student-athletes are back on the field in a safe and timely manner after any injury.

Our Sports Medicine Team works in collaboration with the Athletic Department, Team Doctors, Physical Therapists, and local Physicians. The Athletic Trainer evaluates all athletic injuries and determines athletic status using consultation with Physicians when necessary. At the start of each season, coaches and students are instructed as to appropriate use of the athletic training room facility and of proper procedure for notifying athletic trainers of injury. Likewise, student-athletes are strongly encouraged to report all sports related injuries to one of our Athletic Trainers at the time of injury.

INJURIES AND RETURN TO PLAY

Injuries of an athletic nature, occurring during a school-sponsored activity (on or off campus), must be reported to the athletic trainer. Decisions regarding follow-up care, ongoing athletic training, and/or orthopedic consultation are at the discretion of the athletic training staff, in consultation with local physicians when indicated or necessary. In addition, the athletic trainer will make the determination regarding a student’s return to play and participation in daily athletics. Such determination will be made in consultation with local physicians when indicated or necessary

Injuries of an athletic nature sustained during non-school-sponsored athletic activities are not the responsibility of the athletic trainer and should be directed to the appropriate medical provider. If these injuries affect the playing status of a student athlete, the athletic trainer will make the determination regarding a student’s return to play and participation in daily athletics after consulting with the attending health care provider.
