Starting in the winter of 2016 Kennedy Catholic High School began a partnership with Seattle Children's Hospital to provide athletic training services to our Lancer student-athletes.
Seattle Children’s Athletic Trainers Program provides on-site licensed athletic trainers to schools and other organizations during practices, home and away games and at other sporting events. Trainers are experienced working with athletes from a wide variety of sports, including football, soccer, lacrosse, gymnastics, wrestling, basketball, baseball, softball, track and field, tennis, golf, swimming, volleyball, and cross country.
Athletic trainers work with kids, teens, coaches and parents to make sure young athletes are well prepared for activities, properly treated for injuries and can return to play safely and quickly. The American Academy of Pediatrics issued new guidelines for football that recommend having a sports trainer on the sidelines during games and practices.
Meagan Minson joined the Seattle Children’s staff from Southern California where she received a bachelors in Speech Language Pathology in 2012 from San Jose State where she also was a 2x all-American in water polo. She then returned to her home town of Riverside California to complete her Masters of Science in Athletic Training from California Baptist University.
After graduation, Meagan was employed at San Jacinto High School where she was the first Athletic Trainer in school history. At San Jacinto Meagan was able to develop and implement Athletic Training policies, procedures and emergency action plans while also taking on an integral role in designing the brand new Athletic Training facility on campus.
In her free time, Meagan enjoys spending time with friends and family, staying active and spending weekends outdoors. Meagan is most looking forward to exploring all that Washington has to offer and spending time with her sisters an nieces who also reside in the Pacific Northwest.
