What does a student athletic trainer do?
The Hickory Ridge Sports Medicine Program is a very important part of the overall success of all Raging Bulls athletic programs. We are responsible for the prevention, care, treatment, and rehabilitation of all athletic injuries. The student athletic trainers at Hickory Ridge High School assist the Licensed Athletic Trainers in all aspects of athletic training. Student athletic trainers assist with or perform duties such as taping, administering treatments, providing first-aid, injury evaluation, and stretching. Our student athletic trainers are dedicated to both the well being of our student athletes as well as themselves.
