The Athletic Training Room at Notre Dame High School is a resource available to student-athletes needing assistance with any injury/illness that may affect their participation in athletics. The role of the Certified Athletic Trainer is to manage all aspects of health care for the student-athletes, including such things as providing emergency care/first aid during practices and games, coordinating doctor’s visits, and communicating with student-athletes and coaches about participation status in practice or games. The Certified Athletic Trainer is required to recognize, evaluate and treat athletic injuries and also assists student-athletes in prevention and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. The Certified Athletic Trainer will always be available before, during and after practices and provides coverage for all home games and travels to post-season competitions.
In collaboration with the weight room, the goal of the strength and conditioning and sports medicine programs is to prevent the number of athletic injuries occurring in our student-athletes. This can be achieved by identifying predisposing factors in pre-participation physicals and through observation in the weight room during team and individual workouts. Student-athletes have the opportunity to utilize the Athletic Training Room if they have any questions or concerns about an injury or medical condition.
General Athletic Training Room hours are from 11-12 (lunch) and 2-6 Monday-Friday but are likely to change with early dismissal and on school holidays. If you have any further questions regarding the Athletic Training Room/Sports Medicine Program, please feel free to email Christina Okubo at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 650-595-1913 x280.
