Saint Gertrude High School athletics partners with VCU Health Sports Medicine to provide an on-site certified athletic trainer year-round. Athletic trainers are licensed healthcare providers and are proficient in the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of emergent, acute, or chronic injuries and medical conditions. The athletic trainer is available during practices and home games, working with student-athletes to keep them playing their sport as safely as possible. Our athletic trainer works closely with our Gators, parents, and VCU Health Sports Medicine to maintain communication and ensure the best care possible for each athlete.
Students must have a yearly physical on file in order to participate in a sport at Saint Gertrude. Each year, a new physical is required, which can be completed after May 1 and is valid through June 30 of the following school year.
