  • Sammie will evaluate all injuries that occur at practice and/or games that she is aware of.

  • If your child comes home complaining about an injury that is not a medical emergency, let their coach or Sammie know so she can evaluate it and make a referral if necessary.

    • Athletic trainers can save you money in the long run by being able to evaluate, rehabilitate, and treat a variety of sports injuries.

  • If you take your child to a doctor, please make sure your child has a doctor’s note to turn into their coach/Sammie, so we are aware of any restrictions/physician clearance.
