The health and well-being of our student-athletes is of primary importance to the Athletic Department at Christian Brothers. A full-time Athletic Trainer works directly with our coaches and school physician to care for the needs of our student-athletes.
The services provided by Athletic Trainers include prevention of injuries, emergency care, evaluation of injuries, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.
For more information on Athletic Trainers and how they benefit our student-athletes, please read the Profile of Athletic Trainers as issued by the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA).
