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.
After recently joining the Seattle Children’s Hospital athletic training team, Kristina Brockett ATC has been tapped to work with our Kennedy Catholic High School student-athletes. Prior to becoming a Lancer, Ms. Kristina – as she is known on the sidelines – most recently worked as an athletic trainer in the Auburn School District and at Lakeland Sports and Spine Physical Therapy.
Kristina is a recent graduate of the well-regarded University of Utah athletic training program, where she worked directly with the Utes football, softball and swim teams. While going to school she spent a school year with East High School in Salt Lake City and was with the football teams when they won the 2015 4A Utah State Championship. She also has experience working for the Salt Lake Screaming Eagles Indoor Football team and an internship serving with the University of Washington football team.
Kristina is a board-certified athletic trainer and licensed in the state of Washington. She also is CPR certified through the American Heart Association and is a member of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association.
Born and raised just down the street in Auburn, Kristina loves living in the Pacific Northwest where she spends her free time exploring new restaurants with friends and family.
