FAQs

Where is the athletic training room?

The athletic training room is located in the basement of the Asplundh Field House, across from the wrestling room. 

When is the athletic training room open?

The athletic training room is open Monday through Friday, 2:00pm-5:30pm. If the ATC is not present in the room, the athlete's coach should contact her on her cell phone. The athletic training room will close 15 minutes after the conclusion of the last game/contest/practice. 

On Saturdays, the athletic training room will open two hours prior to the first game/contest. The athletic training room will close 15 minutes after the conclusion of the last game/contest. 

What events are covered by the athletic trainer?

The coverage priority for home athletic contests is based on the risk of injury for each sport, with collision/contact sports having first priority, followed by non-contact events.

Athletic training coverage for athletics occurs only during in-season dates, and does not include optional or off-season practices. In season coverage includes practice times (3:30-5:30 Monday-Thursday and 2:30-4:30 on Fridays) all home contests, and the occasional away contest.  

Athletic training coverage will include a Certified Athletic Trainer and athletic training students when available. 

When should my child see the school nurse vs. the athletic trainer?

For injuries or illness that occur during school hours, students should report to the school nurse. If an injury occurs during an athletic practice or game, the student should report to the athletic trainer.
