Athletic Training/Injury Prevention

School of the Holy Child has a certified athletic trainer on staff who manages the overall health and wellness of our student-athletes. An athletic trainer is an expert at injury prevention, assessment, treatment, emergency care and rehabilitation of sports related injuries and medical conditions. The athletic trainer, as well as all members of our coaching staff, are Certified by the American Red Cross in First Aid, CPR and AED.

In addition, the trainer conducts Baseline ImPACT (Immediate Post-concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) which is critical for each and every Holy Child student. In the unfortunate event of a student sustaining a head injury, the ImPACT assessment is one of many key tools needed to help determine how the student should be treated and what accommodations may be needed.
