We are the proud official medical provider to St. Vrain Valley School District athletes. We provide athletic training services to our local high schools. Each school is provided with an athletic trainer to evaluate athletes’ injuries, as well as rehabilitate those injuries to facilitate the athletes return to participation safely. Athletic trainers are on hand at the schools for practice and to cover home events with preference given to those sports with higher injury rates. Physician attendance will be provided at all Home Football games. If your child is unfortunately injured during a high school event, we will be happy to help in any way we can.

What Is a Certified Athletic Trainer?
A certified athletic trainer (ATC) is a highly skilled and nationally certified allied health professional. Athletic trainers work with physicians and other medical professionals to provide medical care for acute and chronic injuries for all levels of athletes, from elite to recreational. Certified athletic trainers have, at minimum, a bachelor’s degree, usually in athletic training. Athletic trainers study human anatomy and physiology, rehabilitation, biomechanics, exercise physiology, athletic training, nutrition, sport psychology, and therapeutic modalities. They are required to undergo extensive training in clinical and professional settings. This education and training allow the certified athletic trainer to administer immediate emergency medical care, as well as, develop and implement treatment plans for injuries under the direction of a team physician. A large focus of the athletic trainer is the prevention of injuries and overall conditioning of the athlete.
