The Chappaqua Central School District employs athletic trainers to assist student-athletes in the care and prevention of injuries, as well as providing emergency service for the athletes. The athletic trainers develop prevention strategies through appropriate training methods and physical conditioning programs. To ensure proper follow-up after an injury, the trainers consult with parents, the school nurse, the coach, and the school physician.
Rachel Marino is a Certified Athletic Trainer who is licensed in the state of New York. She specializes in prevention, recognition, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic related injuries.
Steven McLees is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Licensed and Certified Athletic Trainer. He is in charge of strength and conditioning program design and administration for all teams, and also assists Rachel with athletic training coverage and treatment.
The HGHS Athletic Training Room is located across from the gym near the entrance to the boys locker room. The Athletic Training Room is open at 1:00pm, Monday through Friday, and varied hours on Saturdays (dependent on the game schedule). The first hour to hour-and-a-half is dedicated to preparing student athletes for games and practices, as well as the evaluation of new injuries.
All potential head injuries and/or concussions will be seen/evaluated after the basic treatments and evaluations have been completed to allow for full one-on-one interaction between the athlete and the athletic trainer. This will then be followed by on-site care with the teams at home competitions and practices.
Should your son or daughter sustain an injury while participating in Horace Greeley High School athletics, he/she must report the injury to Rachel, Steve or the school nurse as soon as possible. If the injury should require the attention of a physician, he/she must turn in to Rachel or Steve any written clearance to participate in athletics from that licensed healthcare professional before he/she will be allowed to participate.
Thank you for your time. We look forward to caring for your student athlete.
