Ursuline Academy Athletics
Ursuline’s Athletic Department offers the services of certified athletic trainers (ATC) to ensure the health and wellness of all of our student-athletes. We partner with ATI Physical Therapy to have a dedicated Ursuline ATC that collaborates with physicians and specializes in the prevention, emergency care, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries and sports-related illnesses.
Ursuline’s ATC is on campus Monday through Friday in the afternoon and after school for practices, in addition to attending all home games/competitions. By hosting a local ATC professional, every student-athlete’s sports-related injuries or issues can be assessed and treated effectively and efficiently, reducing complications and improving long-term medical outcomes. Students are encouraged to stop by the training room to speak with the trainer if they have any concerns or need assistance handling an injury, or for preventative guidance such as strengthening, stretching, or taping.
The ATC is present to evaluate any injuries that occur and provides a proper course of action to treat those injuries. While navigating the treatment plan, the trainer works in close communication and collaboration with the student, their coaches, as well as the parents. Whether recommending proper stretches to improve an injury or referring to an appropriate doctor, the ATC treats, diagnoses, provides emergency care, and maintains the safety and well-being of Ursuline’s student-athlete.
All student-athletes must have a current physical on file (before the start of the season) in Magnus Health. Physical exams need to occur after April 1, in order to be accepted for the following school year. The following physical form can be shared with your child’s doctor. DIAA Physical Form
All incoming 7th graders, freshmen, and juniors undergo ImPACT Baseline Concussion testing.
