Athletic Training

The Cushing Academy Athletic Training Department is committed to delivering the highest level of sports injury prevention, care, treatment and rehabilitation to our entire community. In this capacity the Athletic Trainers strive to promote the physical, emotional, and personal growth of our student-athletes. 

Cushing Academy employs two full time Certified Athletic Trainers who provide healthcare services in collaboration with the school physician and health center. Certified athletic trainers must have, at a minimum a bachelor’s degree–usually in athletic training or sports medicine– and have successfully fulfilled the requirements for certification as established by the National Athletic Trainer’s Association. Athletic trainers must maintain continuing education and meet individual state regulatory requirements. 

Located on the ground floor of the Watkins Field House, the athletic training room is staffed throughout the day until the end of the last practice or home game. During the winter sports season, the athletic training room in Iorio Arena is staffed from 2:30 pm until the end of the last practice or home game.
