Servite Athletics supports our student-athletes by providing the best care and development to ensure they can perform at the highest level. With three certified athletic trainers on staff, talented team doctors and a strength and conditioning coach with more than two decades of experience in the field, our student-athletes are provided the best opportunities to succeed. 

Sports Medicine

Mission:
Servite Sports Medicine seeks to provide quality preventative care, treatment, rehabilitation and counseling services to all Servite student-athletes in alignment with the Servite High School Formation themes of primacy of faith, necessity of the other, centrality of Christ and mastery of self. Through these Formation themes we will strive to create faith filled leaders.

Vision: 
The goal of the Servite Sports Medicine team is to keep each student-athlete healthy and injury free. In order to do so a member of the Servite Sports Medicine team will be at every on campus home event including practices and games as well as most off campus varsity athletic events. In the unfortunate case of injury or illness, the staff will provide quality medical care enabling the student-athlete to return to participation in athletics quickly, effectively, and safely

Athletic Training Policy:

A certified athletic trainer will be on site at every Servite High School home contest and event. Water and injury ice will also be provided for all sports events. The Servite athletic training staff may provide other services upon request. Please contact the Servite Athletics Office prior to any event at Servite to ensure adequate time to prepare for any other assistance necessary.
