In support of our primary goals of spiritual, intellectual and physical development of its students, the mission of the JSerra Athletic Training Program is to fashion a program founded on integrity, accountability and scientific evidence-based doctrine.
The Athletic Training staff will provide every student-athlete with the most comprehensive, highest quality, individual sports medicine health care available in a professional, efficient, compassionate and service-oriented manner.
A diversified program of prevention, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation will assure a positive healthy recovery experience, an improved quality of life, a safe return to full athletic participation and continued athletic success.
What Is Athletic Training?
From on-field emergency care to follow-up treatment and rehabilitation, athletic trainers provide professional health care to injured athletes. A main focus for the athletic trainer is prevention of athletic injuries. They work closely with the rest of the sports medicine team, including doctors, physical therapists, coaches and parents.
To become a certified athletic trainer one must earn a bachelors or masters degree from an accredited athletic training education program and pass a comprehensive exam administered by the Board of Certification. Once certified, they must meet additional continuing education units to remain certified.
