Injury Reporting and Care of Injured Athletes
As an athletic trainer, it is my goal to keep every athlete safe and prevent injuries. However, there are inherent risks with playing any sport and sometimes injuries just happen. If your child becomes injured during a Skyline sport or activity, it is highly recommended that they come to the athletic training room for evaluation and treatment prior to seeing a doctor. This can potentially save you the time and money that comes along with a doctor's visit, as well as decrease missed participation time. Of course, you have every right to seek whatever medical care you see fit for your child.
Communication is a vital part of providing the best care to your child. I will do my best to communicate with you about any injury your child may sustain. However, some injuries are not severe enough to warrant an email or phone call home. In the event of a non-emergency injury, I will likely email you regarding the injury and recommendations for care. In the event I think an injury warrants a referral to a physician, I will contact you by phone and send your child home with a Physician Referral Form to be filled out by the treating physician and returned to me. If your child is treated by a physician without a referral from me, a note from that doctor must be brought to me prior to returning to participation. Notes must clearly state diagnosis/injury, clearance status or return date, and physician name and contact information.
Before students participate in sport or activity, qualified medical personnel should evaluate their health. All Skyline High School student-athletes must receive an annual pre-participation physical examination. Incoming Freshmen must have a physical dated after June 1st, 2016. These physical examinations are required and will cover the athlete for one year from the date of the physical exam. A licensed physician, physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner must complete the Pre-participation Physical Evaluation.
