Injury Prevention

Our certified athletic trainers believe in the importance of preventing injuries, and our prevention strategy includes:

  • Venue-specific emergency action plans
  • Access to automatic external defibrillators
  • A concussion management/return to play protocol that includes mandatory ImPACT baseline testing
  • A heat acclimatization policy
  • Hydration and nutrition instruction

Every student-athlete is required to have and maintain a NCHSAA physical examination (valid for one year from the date performed) by their primary care physician, clearing them to participate.
