Athletic Training

In conjunction with our school’s mission, the sports medicine team at VCS provides a program founded on practicing sports medicine with the highest quality care possible in a professional, compassionate, and service-oriented manner. The primary objective of our Certified Athletic Trainers is to ensure the health and safety of our student-athletes participating in sports. To do so, we work in collaboration with the athletic department, school nurse, physical therapists, and physicians. The Athletic Training team offers care from pre-participation sports physicals, preventative treatments, evaluation of injuries and illnesses, rehabilitation of injuries, to recommending proper sports nutrition and specialty referrals.

As a clinical site for the California State University, Northridge Athletic Training Educational Program (CSUN ATEP), VCS provides a hands-on experience for college students.

High school sports medicine students are also provided the opportunity to have on-field and clinic experience under the supervision of our Certified Athletic Trainers.

High school athletic training program requirements:

  • Completed application
  • CPR/First aid and AED certified
  • 9th-12th grade
  • 200 completed clinical hours per semester assigned

Our VCS sports medicine team strives to provide mentoring and leadership skills while building life-long relationships. If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Rodriguez.
