Black Hawks Athletic Training

The Black Hawks Athletic Training Department is dedicated to serving and providing the outstanding student-athletes of Bloomfield Hills High School with the opportunity to not only treat and rehabilitate their injuries but to provide an atmosphere that promotes total development of the individual.

Athletic Training is an allied medical profession. Athletic Trainers supervise and administer services of prevention, recognition, management, and rehabilitation of injuries incurred by athletes. As a certified member of the National Athletic Trainers Association John strives to follow the NATA mission statement:

"The mission of the National Athletic Trainer's Association is to enhance the quality of health care provided by certified athletic trainers and to advance the athletic training profession."

Our staff is comprised of a full time Certified Athletic Trainer and at least 1 Student Athletic Training Intern from Central Michigan University per semester.

John can be reached at the High School training room from the second week in August through the first week of June. Should your son/daughter sustain an injury, John is available in the training room from 2:00 p.m. until home events are completed for the evening. ALL INJURIES should be reported to the trainers on the day that they occur or the following day at the latest. In the event that this is not possible, it is suggested the following R.I.C.E. principle is followed:
  • Rest the injured area.
  • Ice all injuries until seen by the trainer. It is recommended to ice the injured area for 20 minutes at least every two hours.
  • Compression – place an ace wrap on the injured site.
  • Elevate the injured area above the heart.
***Do NOT put HEAT on a new injury for at least 48 to 72 hours***
In the event that your son/daughter is seen by a physician or ends up in the emergency room prior to being seen by a trainer, a doctor's note MUST be submitted before any further participation. NO exceptions.
Please keep in mind that in the event your son/daughter is injured, he/she is not excused from practice. He/she is expected to attend practices as scheduled, unless told otherwise by their coach.
