The Athletic Training Department at Richwoods High School is dedicated to the care and prevention of athletic injuries sustained on and off the field. A Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) has specialized training in 5 areas:
1. Prevention of Athletic Injuries: This includes taping, bracing, stretching, etc.
2. Recognition, Evaluation, and Immediate Care of Athletic Injuries: This includes game/event coverage, on and off field evaluations, and referrals.
3. Rehabilitation and Recognition of Athletic Injuries: We will work with athletes to get them back on the field following an injury.
4. Health Care Administration.
5. Professional Development: The Athletic Trainer works in conjunction with the Athletic Director, physicians, and all of the coaches to keep the athletes safe during sport participation. If an athlete is injured, the Athletic Trainer will provide immediate care and will contact a parent/guardian if necessary. We can also facilitate a referral to a doctor.
