Athletic Training

Student Athletic Training is available during every sports season. It is a lot of fun and teaches students about various injuries, taping techniques, first aid procedures, and general Sports Medicine. Students work hands-on with the GHS athletes to assist in treating their injuries.

The season begins at the beginning of the fall sports season, winter season and spring season.
