Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) What is an Athletic Trainer? Minimal 4 year degree and successful completion of National Accreditation Exam Not the “trainer” at the local gym Licensed by Virginia’s Board of Medicine to practice athletic training Responsibilities Prevention of injuries/ re-injury Recognition, evaluation, and assessment of injuries and illnesses Immediate care of injuries and illnesses Rehabilitation and reconditioning of injuries Organization and administration Professional development and responsibility
Injuries All injuries & illnesses must be reported to the Athletic Trainers prior to a return to activity regardless of severity or physician consultation Our philosophy is to return injured athletes to participation in the quickest and SAFEST manner possible. Rehabilitation and reconditioning is a primary role of the Certified Athletic Trainers Every injury will benefit from some form of rehabilitation
When an Injury Occurs Severe injuries and those resulting in any time loss, you will be notified by phone. Please make sure we have current contact numbers! Every injury is different and so is the proper care for that injury If your son/daughter sees a physician – Please bring in a note that informs us of diagnosis, what rehab or treatment the physician would like, and the participation status.
Return To Play Describes a process rather than a singular event Discrete steps of increasing intensity Occurs over period of days → weeks Depends on nature/severity of injury Includes: Regular evaluation & treatment by ATC Strengthening, range of motion, proprioception Sport specific skills Graduated participation during practices In most cases, students should demonstrate ability to play during PRACTICE before competing in a game A parent, coach, family physician, athlete, administrator, ATC, or team physician can exclude an athlete from participation All must be in agreement that the student can and should play
Building Responsible Athletes Have your athlete carry a water bottle with them at all times Maintaining proper hydration is a full time job, not just during practice/games Have your athlete pack a lunch/snacks to bring to school each day Have your athlete wash their own uniforms and practice gear on a regular basis
Hygiene DO: Shower daily after practice or competition using soap Bring clean clothes each day to practice Report any suspicious lesion on your skin to the ATCs DO NOT: Share clothing Share towels Share personal products like soap or deodorant Allow water bottles/coolers to make contact with your mouth Parents: Please reinforce ALL of the above
Nutrition Good nutrition should be a priority Proper hydration is essential 22-24 oz of H20 for every pound lost There is no quick fix… real food is far better than any pill or supplement 50-60% carbohydrates 15-20% protein 20-35% fat
What About Supplements? Natural and synthetic substances, minimal/no regulation by FDA Supplements are not regulated generally not recommended for children/adolescents Generally legal, but may be illegal for sale to minors Includes creatine, protein powders, amino acid supplements, ephedra and caffeine Talk to your family physician
Concussions (mTBI) Concussion is an injury to the brain that can alter your ability to learn Some head injuries can be life threatening Signs & Symptoms Headache Confusion Dizziness Change in personality Difficulty sleeping Difficulty concentrating Loss of appetite Loss of memory Treatment includes physical and cognitive rest Athletic Trainers are thoroughly trained in the treatment and management of concussion and are legally authorized to treat concussion
LAST YEAR’S MARSHALL SCHOLAR ATHLETES OF THE OVER 1,000 ATHLETES OVER 3 SEASONS, THE AVERAGE GPA WAS OVER A 3.5
FCPS Participation Pledge Policy Participation in activities is a privilege, not a right. Athletes must conform to high standards. Violations of the Pledge Policy include: Drug and/or alcohol use Breaking school rules Other disciplinary issues Sportsmanship
Student Standards of Conduct Athletes are expected not to put themselves into compromising situations where drugs, alcohol, or tobacco products are being used. If they are at a party where drugs, alcohol or tobacco products are being used, students are expected to leave immediately.
NFHS MISSION/STATEMENT Winning on the professional level is required. Winning on the collegiate level has become expected. Winning on the high school level should be a pleasant by-product to what you’re really supposed to be doing which is developing young people into good citizens” Robert Kanaby, Executive Director, NFHS
CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT The primary role of high school athletics is to build lifetime character traits in the young people who are in our care. We must never lose sight of the big picture – that our athletic programs are primarily for the benefit of the students who participate in them.
COMMUNICATION COACHES EXPECT FROM PARENTS Concerns expressed directly to the coach. Notification of any schedule conflicts well in advance. Specific concern in regard to a coach's philosophy and/or expectations. Medical or physical limitations of your child.
COMMUNICATION COACHES EXPECT FROM PARENTS As your children become involved in the athletic programs they will experience some of the most challenging and rewarding moments of their lives. It is important to understand that times may also arise when things do not go the way you or your child wants. At these times, discussion first with your child, and then with the coach, if needed, is encouraged.
APPROPRIATE CONCERNS TO DISCUSS WITH COACHES The treatment of your child, mentally and physically. Ways to help your child improve. Concerns about your child's behavior.
ISSUES NOT APPROPRIATE TO DISCUSS WITH COACHES Playing time. Team strategy. Play-calling. Other student-athletes.
IF YOU HAVE A CONCERN IN A PROGRAM, THIS IS THE PROCEDURE YOU SHOULD FOLLOW: Set up a meeting with the coach. If it is something that was communicated by your child, have them present. Please do not attempt to confront a coach before or after a contest or practice. These can be emotional times for both the parent and the coach. Meetings of this nature do not generally promote resolution. If after meeting with the coach, you believe that an appropriate resolution has not been met, setup a meeting with the Director of Student Activities and the coach.
Release Them to the Game By releasing a child to the game the parent is telling their athlete all the successes are theirs and the failures are theirs.
“I LOVE WATCHING YOU PLAY” One comment from a parent that can always be sincerely said and received by a young athlete.
