Our names are Alyssa Gaidar, Whitney Richards & Anthony Zimmer and we are the athletic trainers at Warren Township High School. We wanted to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and put into writing some procedures that you need to be aware of as a parent of a student athlete. It is important for you to be aware of the policies so that we can facilitate the return of your child back to the playing field as soon and as safely as possible.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns. Email is the best way to get in touch with us. You may also reach us via the training room phones and leave a message. Below are both numbers and each e-mail address.
During the school year we will arrive prior to dismissal on both campuses. Please encourage your athletes to come immediately after school if they need our assistance. If there are no games, we will leave when practices have concluded. If there are home games scheduled, we will be on school property until those conclude.
It is very important that all injuries get reported to us as soon as possible. The resources available in the athletic training room and through our relationship with ATI Physical Therapy are designed to give our student-athletes the highest quality of care, but we cannot use these resources if I am unaware of injuries. If you are away at another school and an injury occurs, please contact us with any questions. ATI Physical Therapy also offers freeinjury screenings at all of our locations. Please call us at any time and we can set up an injury screen. We will keep you updated on all injuries and the return to play status of your student athletes. If you ever have a question about your student athlete, please do not hesitate to ask.
Returning an Athlete to Play
It is school policy that any time an athlete seeks care from a physician for an athletic injury, that athlete may not return to play until we receive a written note from the physician for releasing the athlete for participation. There is no exception to this rule. Parent notes are unacceptable.
Again, please do not hesitate to contact us with any problems or concerns. Go Blue Devils!
