General Information for Parents and Athletes

Students and Parents:

Being injured or sick can be a difficult time for any athlete. At ACE Athletic Training we would like to make this process a little less stressful by providing some useful information regarding injuries and illness. As always we are available to answer any questions the athletes, parents and coaches have in these areas, so please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

*The purpose of this website is to provide educational information for athletes, parents and coaches. This material is intended for general educational purposes, and does not take the place of a physician, or serve as substitute for medical advice or treatment.


Responsibilities of the Student-Athlete

In order to achieve the objective of quality medical care, each student-athlete has the responsibility to:

  • Be honest and direct with the athletic trainers caring for you
  • Report all injuries and illnesses within 48 hours
  • Follow the treatment and rehabilitation plan prescribed by your physician or athletic trainer. It is your responsibility to advise the athletic trainer if there are any problems or reason why you cannot follow the plan
  • Report to the Athletic Training Facility daily, or as directed, for treatment and rehabilitation until you are cleared by the athletic trainer or medical doctor
  • Report any change in your condition to a staff athletic trainer
  • Understand your health problem and the treatment and rehabilitation program to your satisfaction. If you do not understand any part of your treatment/rehabilitation program, ask a staff Athletic Trainer or physician. Be sure you know what is expected of you.
