Sports Medicine

Greensboro Day School has a long tradition of providing high quality sports medicine care to its student-athletes.

Our two certified athletic trainers have over 40 years of experience in the field of sports medicine and cover our 12 sports and 38 teams at the middle school, junior varsity, and varsity levels. During practices and home games, a certified athletic trainer is available to evaluate injuries and provide immediate and follow-up care. Athletic trainers and athletic training students also help to educate the GDS community about nutrition, healthy living, first aid, CPR, and the effects of harmful substances. 

Since 2014, GDS has earned the NATA Safe Sports School Award. This national award recognizes secondary schools and athletic trainers who champion safety by providing the highest level of care, injury prevention, and treatment.

Learning Sports Medicine

Greensboro Day School offers students the opportunity to advance their knowledge by taking classes such as Health, Fitness, Sports Medicine, and Human Performance & Biomechanics.

Students who wish to gain further practical experience in the field may participate in internship opportunities in orthopedics, physical therapy, athletic training, biomechanics, and exercise physiology.
