Sports Medicine II

    Sports Medicine II involves the study of the theory and techniques of evaluation of injuries to the ankle/lower leg, knee, shoulder, forearm, wrist and hand.  Emphasis is on orthopaedic assessment, including neurological evaluations, manual muscle testing, special tests and preventative taping.  Internal injuries, dermatology and general medical topics are also included.
    Clinical Rotation Requirements
    Students are required to attend practices and/or games this school year.  After each day spent in the athletic training room or at practices/games, students are required to log their hours.  Students are required to have 15 hours documented on their time logs by the end of each nine weeks.  These hours count for 50% of the final grade.  Students are required to summarize the activities of the athletic trainer, athletes, tasks they completed and what they learned.  Students who are athletes can not use their own team's games or practices for hours.
    *Journals and Time Logs are due every Monday*
     **Fall Semester Only**
    -Students must attend a football practice during the week before they can attend a football game on the sidelines for clinical time. (Athletes we will work on accommodating your practice schedule)
    -Students are allowed to attend away football games with parental permission and will ride the bus with the football team.  Parental notes need to be submitted the day before the football game.
    Dress Code for Clinical Rotations
    It is important for us to maintain a professional appearance at all times for clinical rotations.  Students will need to purchase a CCHS Athletic Training shirt for $20 to wear to practices and games. Students can wear khaki, black, or navy pants, shorts or capris and must adhere to the school dress code.  Jeans will not be allowed during clinical time and shirts must be tucked in at all times.  Hooded sweatshirts or hats are not allowed unless the student is outside.  Any student that does not adhere to these standards will not be allowed to participate in the clinical rotation for the day.
    Clinical Rotation Journals Format
    Journals must be typed using 12pt font and Times New Roman. The following is an example of what should be included:
    Body of Text Include:
