Athletic Training - Sports Medicine

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

Our Certified Athletic Trainers

List of 2 members.

  • Mr. Jon Schner LAT, ATC 

    Assistant Athletic Director, Head of Sports Medicine, US PE/Science
  • Ms. Meg Sumner LAT, ATC 

    Assistant to the Athletic Director, Assistant Athletic Trainer, Cheerleading Operations
    East Carolina University - B.S.
Our two certified athletic trainers cover our 17 sports and more than 40 teams at the middle school, junior varsity, and varsity levels. The Sports Medicine Facility/Training Room is located at ground level within our Dillard Athletic Complex.

During practices and home games, a certified athletic trainer is available to evaluate injuries and provide immediate and follow up care. Our certified athletic trainers also serve as Associate Clinical Instructors for our local colleges and universities. This allows additional opportunities for care and mentoring. The directly supervised graduate and undergraduate students from local universities and colleges are another set of eyes and ears, often bringing our on site "staff" to 4-5 persons.

Athletic trainers, and athletic training students, also educate the Greensboro Day School community about nutrition, healthy living, first aid, CPR, and the effects of harmful substances. The Greensboro Day School sports medicine program also allows our own US students to assist with the everyday operations of the athletic training room, on-field practice, and game coverage through our Student Athletic Training and Sports Medicine class.

Sports Medicine/Athletic Training

List of 2 items.

  • Learning Sports Medicine

    Greensboro Day school offers students the opportunity to advance their knowledge in the field of Health, Fitness, Sports Medicine, Human Performance and Biomechanics.

    As freshmen, students take Health and Wellness, a prerequisite, in our curriculum. Students may then take one or more of the advance offerings in Sports Medicine, Fitness, or Human Perfomance/Biomechanics of Sport.  All of the advance sections require training for certification in a Professional Rescuer CPR/AED course.
    Students wishing to gain further practical experience in the field may participate internship opportunities including orthopedics, physical therapy, athletic training, biomechanics, and exercise physiology.
  • Visiting School Teams

    For athletic teams traveling without an athletic trainer, our Sports Medicine Staff is available, for emergency care and basic first aid.  The staff is available to tape athletes if needed, please send appropriate supplies.

    Please notify the training room prior to arrival if there are any athletes who require special needs.
    Each bench will be supplied with water and injury ice.  A receptacle for biohazardous waste is available upon request.  Cups will be provided but we ask visiting teams bring water bottles if needed.

    Dillard Gym Training Room
    Our training room is equipped with the following modalities:

    Hydrocollator packs
    Extremity whirlpool
    E-Stim Ultrasound

    **If a team is not traveling with an athletic trainer, please send appropriate supplies for treatment and care.  Also have a physician or school athletic trainer call with specific parameters should an athlete require the use of a modality. Without specific instruction, we cannot provide treatment other than basic heat and ice.
