Compared to the fall season, Bishop DuBourg High School does not have as many winter sports, so there are not as many events during the winter season. However, this allowed us to form an close relationship with our preceptor Nathan Jarman ATC, from SSM-SLU Hospital, the athletes participating in sports.
As tryouts for spring sports have started, we are now beginning to work with the boys basketball team with a strength training program. It will be interesting to see if they can make the same amount of progress that the girls team did. We look forward to working with a more variety of sports this spring, as well as helping out with strength training programs for any off-season teams.
This is one of a series of posts by the Saint Louis University Athletic Training students featuring their clinical site and their preceptors. The number, quality and diversity of clinical instruction are major assets for the SLU AT Program.
