Athletic Training

Athletic Training Team at CCS

Two full-time Athletic Trainers (ATs) are available at CCS for the athletic community. At CCS, ATs are nationally-certified (ATC) and licensed healthcare providers in Tennessee who provide prevention, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries.

ATs provide immediate care and evaluation of injuries, treatment, and rehabilitation working with athletes, parents, coaches, and other healthcare providers to keep our athletes safe on the field or court.

ATs refer to other healthcare professionals when appropriate, especially when formal rehabilitation in addition to what is provided at school may be required.

The Athletic Training Office is located in the Power House facility.
