The health and well-being of our student athletes is of primary importance to the Athletic Department at Neshaminy High School. The full time Athletic Trainer is provided by a contract with St. Mary Medical Center and works directly with our coaches and team physician to care for the needs of our student athletes
Athletic Trainers are healthcare professionals who work under the direction of physicians, as prescribed by the state licensure statute. They are highly qualified, multi-skilled healthcare professionals, under the allied health professions category defined by the Health Resources Services Administration and Department of Health and Human Services. The services provided by Athletic Trainers include prevention of injuries, emergency care, evaluation of injuries, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.
The mission of the Neshaminy High School Athletic Training program is to provide comprehensive, evidenced-based, quality healthcare services for the well-being of the Neshaminy High School student athletes, while simultaneously promoting an atmosphere conducive to the education of student athletes.
The Athletic Training program strives to develop effective values in prevention, recognition, evaluation and rehabilitation of injuries/illness, as well as in the education of student athletes, parents and coaches. It is the goal of Neshaminy’s Athletic Trainer to prevent, manage, rehabilitate, and return the student athlete to athletic activity as quickly as is safely possible.
