Athletic Trainer Practice & Game Coverage

A high school coach, athletic director or other school administrator may request an Athletic Trainer for game, tournament, or practice medical coverage.

Injury Prevention

Functional Movement Clinic

Monthly clinic screenings for athletes are offered by SLV Health Pro Therapy Department. They are one-on-one screenings to determine injury risk and to suggest specific exercises to improve performance and decrease injury risk.

Injury Prevention Camps

Teams and coaches can set up an entire Saturday injury prevention camp. Student-Athletes will be instructed in correct lifting techniques, correct movement patterns that are SPORTS SPECIFIC and mobility strategies to decrease the likelihood of injury. Camps include a free t-shirt for each participant and a free lunch provided by SLV Health. Contact Justin Fricke (719) 589-8046 to set up a weekend for these camps.

Jump Training and ACL Injury Prevention Training Clinics

Programs are offered to teams that are at risk of injury due to the type of sports they play. Therapists assess the risk of injury, give safety recommendations for training, instruct correct jumping/landing techniques and give recommendations for strengthening, plyometrics and balance training to avoid injury.

Coaches can request for a physical therapist to attend a practice or game to assess an individual player or the team for injury risk or abnormal movement patterns.
