Sports Medicine

Legacy the School of Sport Sciences is a unique school that allows our students and student-athletes to operate in opportunities and responsibility. Our Sports Medicine Program is a plethora of learning opportunities, hands-on experiences, and application of concepts and theories.  We give students a safe place to learn, make mistakes within their set boundaries, increase confidence in their new abilities, and assist them in growth and maturity in the field of medicine.  We also expose our students to various medical professionals that hold positions in clinics, hospitals, and or rehab facilities throughout our community.

From our youngest at 13 to our oldest at 18, the Sports Medicine Program at Legacy gives students ongoing opportunities to be hands-on and front-and-center working with all athletic teams on campus performing medical procedures like first aid, taping, emergency response, and rehabilitation.
 

Students can expect to learn basic first aid, emergency response protocols, how to communicate with EMS personnel, anatomy, body systems, and taping and splinting techniques.

 

Students provide medical response for team practices, home and away games, and travel with all sports during each individual season. They also have the opportunity to work outside events such as AAU Basketball and International Soccer Tournaments.
