Strength and Sports Medicine
The sports medicine team helps students with their overall physical fitness and treats and prevents injuries related to sports and exercise.
The Sidwell Friends sports medicine staff consists of a head certified athletic trainer, an assistant certified athletic trainer, a certified strength and conditioning specialist, and a consulting orthopedic doctor.
Our certified athletic trainers are skilled healthcare professionals who work together with physicians to provide treatment and support during a student’s injury. Trainers attend home games, oversee rehabilitation programs, and provide on-field emergency care of injuries.
The School’s strength and conditioning program focuses on discipline, effort, accountability, and consistency. The strength and conditioning specialist provides a safe and logical progression for student athletes’ development through ability- and age-appropriate programs that minimize injury and maximize athletic potential.
