Sports Medicine

An athletic trainer is a certified and licensed health care professional that works within the sports medicine field. Athletic trainers are skilled in preventing, diagnosing, and treating athletic injuries. The overall health and well-being of a student-athlete is always the primary concern for healthcare providers.

Sports teams at Rochelle Zell compete at a high level. Having an athletic trainer on staff not only helps students physically but psychologically as well. A level of confidence is instilled into a student-athlete, through an athletic trainer, to better themselves physically, mentally, and to enhance performance and general health.

"Participating in athletics at RZJHS not only lets me improve my skills and challenge myself; it provides an incredible opportunity to bond with students in other grades." - Ann K., '19
