Athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions.

What do High School Athletic Trainers Do?
- Injury Prevention, Recognition, Diagnosis, and Care: Athletic training responsibilities cover many different domains. Injury prevention, injury diagnosis, and immediate care of injuries comprise the bulk of their duties. High school ATs are often the first point of contact for any injury, illness, or ailment a student-athlete may have.
- Therapeutic Interventions: Athletic Trainers can often render care, therapeutic exercises, and apply therapeutic modalities for patients on-site. These interventions can help facilitate and even speed up the healing process for many injuries.
