Welcome to Sports Medicine
Greetings and Welcome to the Richlands High School Sports Medicine Program. By entering into this program you have set yourselves apart from the normal high school student. Expectations and standards are at a much higher level than that of a normal high school student as well. Part of the expectations for a Sports Medicine Student Assistant include, but are not limited to, a minimum GPA of 2.5 and is available for after-school activities (practices, games, etc). Part of the standards of a Sports Medicine Student Assistant includes but are not limited to, professional conduct, dress code, and ability to work with others.
This experience requires an enormous commitment and an abundant amount of dedication. Practices/games will be scheduled for times after school and some may occur on the weekend and holidays, excluding Sunday. This program is designed to be student-oriented in that “You will get out of it whatever you put into it!” With that being said, this program can not only provide a very educational experience but also add a very intricate part to a young adolescents’ social and maturation process.
In conclusion, I again welcome you to the program. My door is always open for any of your questions, comments, and suggestions. I look forward to working with you and directing your athletic training endeavors and helping you meet any other educational goals that you may have.
“Striving for a healthier athlete…”

The Sports Medicine Program at Richlands High School has the two-fold purpose of educating sports medicine student assistants interested in sports medicine and providing a high standard of care for the student-athletes. Education of the students will be accomplished by providing an educational experience that effectively combines classroom instruction and practical experiences. This allows the students to maintain and improve their knowledge and skill in the area of athletic training while preparing them for higher levels of education. An acceptable standard of care for our student-athletes will be accomplished as health care services are provided in accordance with our team physician. Combining these purposes will permit sports medicine student assistants to actively and accurately participate in delivering a high standard of care to our students.
