Sports Medicine

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.
