Trainers and Accident Reporting
Each school has athletic trainers who work closely with the school medical inspector and other attending physicians. They work with each sport to provide proper training regimens and rehabilitative assistance as prescribed by the physician. The trainers are skilled in first aid and have the final say as to whether a student-athlete may continue participation in a particular game.
The school trainer must be notified whenever a case is referred to a physician or hospital. Student participation in athletics can only resume upon clearance with a doctor’s note.
Whenever an injured player is to be transported to a hospital, a coach will accompany the player; if this is not possible, a responsible adult may accompany the student (the parents of the injured student may accompany the injured athlete in place of the coach or other responsible school personnel.)
