• Athletic Training Office 

    The Spring Grove Area School District Athletic Trainer and Strength Coordinator is committed to providing quality healthcare to the student-athletes of the Spring Grove Area School District through prevention, evaluation, rehabilitation, and treatment of athletic injuries and illness.  

    In association with the National Athletic Training Association, the Spring Grove Area School District Athletic Trainer and Strength Coordinator would like to remind you that:

    • Athletic Training is practiced by certified athletic trainers: healthcare professionals who work to prevent, diagnose, and intervene in case of emergency, acute and chronic medical conditions, particularly in the orthopedic and musculoskeletal disciplines.

    • Athletic trainers hold at least a bachelor's degree, are certified through an independent agency, the Board of Certification, Incorporated, and are Licensed by the State of Pennsylvania.
    • Athletic trainers are part of the sports medicine and healthcare team, which includes physicians and other healthcare personnel.

    • Athletic trainers provide a financial return on investment for secondary schools, occupational employers, physicians, hospitals, and clinics and help to ease the burden on the public and private healthcare systems.

    • Athletic trainers differ from personal trainers or "trainers", who focus solely on fitness and conditioning. Athletic trainers have higher education and certification requirements than personal trainers. 

    The Spring Grove Area School District is now implementing home baseline testing for the ImPACT computer concussion system.  Please click on the link for ImPACT Information in the left column for further details. 

Student-Athlete Health and Safety

  • This section of the website is designed to bring parents information, focusing on three areas of health and safety for student-athletes, including:

    The Pennsylvania Act 101 “Safety in Youth Sports Act,” and Act 59 “Sudden Cardiac Arrest Act,” requires school districts to inform and educate coaches, parents/guardians, and athletes about concussions and sudden cardiac arrest through training and/or information fact sheets.

    PLEASE NOTE: This information is provided only as a resource. Only a certified physician can diagnose injuries and prescribe recuperative medications and procedures.
