We are proud to staff six (6) local high school athletic departments with Licensed Athletic Trainers (AT).

Petoskey - Harbor Springs - Charlevoix -  Inland Lakes - Cheboygan - Pellston

Licensed Athletic Trainers are medical experts in preventing, recognizing, managing and rehabilitating injuries.

The Licensed Athletic Trainer is responsible for athletic injury prevention through education of proper conditioning, body mechanics, nutrition, and stretching.  The Trainer also prepares the athletes for practice or competition with any necessary taping, wrapping, bracing or stretching.  The trainer is available to all athletes in the Athletic Training room at the schools for the last class period of the day, to answer questions and perform injury screening.  The trainer will then attend various practice sessions until 6 pm.

Look for our AT on the sidelines at home athletic events throughout the year.  When an injury occurs, the AT will evaluate the athlete and determine whether a referral to a physician is necessary.  The AT is then responsible for follow up care including treatment, rehabilitation, and gradual return to full athletic participation.

In addition, the AT will communicate with the athlete, parents, coaches, and physician to ensure proper care is provided to allow for safe return to the sport.

Injury Screening

The trainer will screen any injury or examine an athlete experiencing pain.

Please feel free to contact our AT's to find out more about this program:

Do you recommend off-season conditioning programs for high school athletes?

Yes. Athletes that participate in an off-season conditioning program are less frequently injured, and are able to focus on sport specific skill development when their season begins. High School athletes have the opportunity to participate in our summer Peak Performance enhancement program designed by our AT's.
