Sports Medicine

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.

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
