DVUSD athletic trainers shared with the governing board what they do at the March 7th governing board meeting. Athletic trainers save athlete's seasons with injury treatment and prevention, and they save athletes and their families money. An estimated $88,000 of insurance or out-of-pocket costs that would normally be spent by athletes' families were saved by Mountain Ridge High School in 2021-22 alone!

    National Athletic Training Month is held every March in order to spread awareness about the important work of athletic trainers. Before you get sidelined by an injury, make sure you consult an athletic trainer who specializes in the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses.

    Athletic trainers are essential to health care!
