Sports Medicine and Performance Teacher
Samantha earned both her Master’s Degree in Athletic Training and Bachelor’s Degree in Fitness Wellness from Northern Arizona University. As a Certified Athletic Trainer licensed to practice in Arizona, her aim is to keep athletes healthy and safe through injury prevention, education, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. In addition, athletic trainers are healthcare professionals who are also proficient in the following: clinical evaluation and diagnosis, immediate care, treatment, reconditioning, organization and administration, and professional responsibility.
For Athletes: SportsWare Online (swol123.net) is a program for which all athletes will need to register before being seen by the Athletic Trainer. Once registered, this program will allow the Athletic Trainer to document important information about injuries, treatments, concussions, and referrals to ensure that athletes are getting the best possible care. Communication with parents and coaches about an athlete’s ability to play can be done through this program. To receive services as needed, please sign and submit the Athletic Training Services Consent Forms on the SportsWare Portal.
Instructions on how to register can be found here: http://northlandprep.org/athletics/athletics/athletic-training/
