National Athletic Training Month

National Athletic Training Month is held every March in order to spread awareness about the important work of athletic trainers. The 2023 slogan is “There’s an AT for That”. In honor of National Athletic Training Month, the Athletic Trainers are open to receiving donations of used medical equipment such as crutches and medical boots from home. If any households have any of these used medical equipment and nobody uses any more, please donate them to the Athletic Trainers, so they are able to pass them along to those who need them. Lastly, we would like to express our gratitude to the Athletic Trainers Mark Samonsky and Hajime Ta-ka-shima for their hard work! Once again, thank you!
