SLU AT Students have a Busy Spring Semester with the Statesmen!

SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - Webster Groves High School

During the winter sports season for the Statesmen the wrestlers, the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams definitely kept us busy.  The indoor sports season gave us the opportunity to spend some quality time with our athletes and focus on our rehabilitation skills.

Our preceptor, Sean Wright ATC, has allowed us to evaluate injuries and work through designing our own rehab programs.  He gives us guidance and asks us questions to lead our thought process in decision making.  Sean Wright has been the athletic trainer at WGHS for the last 8 years.  He teaches health, PE, and offers two levels of athletic training classes for Webster Groves students.  The coaches, students, and parents trust and respect him; it shows in the athletes compliance with his recommendations.
