Athletic Training

Supporting Student-Athletes with Licensed Healthcare Professionals

As a recognized Safe Sports School, New Hampton Athletic Trainers’ main goal is to keep student-athletes healthy and injury-free. In the event of injury, our certified athletic trainers (ATCs) provide evaluations to determine safe participation status, preventive taping and bracing, and rehabilitation, and communicate with parents of injured athletes. They also keep and maintain records on each individual athlete, their injuries, and their treatments.

Athletes who are not able to participate in practice or contests will be monitored while completing their rehabilitation program
 and the athletic trainer will liaise with the athlete's treating doctor or physical therapist to carry out any prescribed rehabilitative therapy.

Training Room and Facilities

The athletic training room is a 900-square-foot, multi-purpose facility, located on the first floor of the Smith Gymnasium. It is equipped with four treatment tables, a taping station, two whirlpools, e-stim ultrasound units, hot/cold hydrocollators, and an office. It is staffed by two full-time certified and state licensed ATCs who are assisted by student interns from Plymouth State University’s Athletic Training programs.

The Headway Foundation

Every New Hampton School athlete playing a contact sport will undergo a baseline neurocognitive ImPact Test prior to their season as means for evaluation if brain-injury occurs.
The Headway Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that aims to promote a safer sports culture, provide resources for patients, and enhance concussion evaluation protocols and accessibility.

Student ambassadors from all four New Hampton Hockey teams have signed the New Tough Pact, a commitment that encourages athletes to:

  1. Report possible concussion symptoms and stay patient during recovery.
  2. Encourage brain-injured teammates to seek help and offer support while they heal.
  3. Play the game within its rules. Avoid illegal hits from behind to the head and neck.

The New Tough Pact puts brain-health first.
