Athletic Training Coverage
While participating in interscholastic athletic programs sponsored by the Somerset Area School District, athletes will be provided coverage by a certified athletic trainer (ATC). However, not all athletic events are directly supervised by the athletic trainer. Each sport is ranked in priority for coverage by its risk of catastrophic injuries. Athletic programs are classified as being a collision sport, a contact sport, or a non-contact sport. The certified athletic trainer is most likely in attendance at the event that presents a higher risk of injury regardless of participation level (varsity / junior varsity / junior high). However, the athletic staff has an emergency action plan in existence to follow when the certified athletic trainer cannot be present.
