At the Center for Athletes, our nationally certified athletic trainers work with athletes directly on their campuses and where they compete.
We provide full athletic training coverage to six local high schools - from pre-game warm-ups to helping students learn how to prevent injuries.
Our staff oversees pre-season strength training and education programs, as well as Impact Concussion Screening, using the latest concussion evaluation and management tools.
During the season we evaluate and treat injuries, as necessary, for athletes from the area high schools, as well as provide game coverage for youth and adult sports leagues and clubs.
We also offer CPR and First Aid classes through the American Heart Association.
We are proactive in assessing and managing concussions to help limit the risks and potential complications for athletes.
