The Sports Performance program is designed to support the overall athletic program in the pursuit of competitive excellence through enhancing athletic performance using a systematic and progressive approach to the total conditioning process. The program is based on sound principles, sport science and experience based practice. Development of the training program is a team effort involving input from the sport coaches, athletic trainer and athletes. Each training program takes into account individual athletes’ needs in the pursuit of personal, team and season goals. With an emphasis on quality coaching and planning, we strive to maximize athletic potential, reduce injuries and develop confident, adaptable athletes prepared for success in athletics and in life.
The Collegiate Athletic Training Program exists as part of a comprehensive health and safety program for our students. We are committed to providing evidence-based quality healthcare for our students through education, injury prevention, emergency care, injury evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation and return to sport assessments. Our Athletic Trainers are board certified by the National Athletic Trainer's Association and Licensed Health Care Providers in the state of Virginia. We work closely with our school nurses, strength coaches, local doctors and physical therapists to help manage a wide range of injuries. Our Athletic Trainers are available at all home games and practices for our Cub, JV and Varsity teams; we also provide coverage for all Cougar Sports Zone activities and Summer Quest sports camps.
