CBC Provides an Outstanding Clinical Site for SLU AT Students

SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - Christian Brothers College High School

This semester we have had a great opportunity to serve as athletic training students at Christian Brothers College High School (CBC). CBC is a LaSallian Catholic college preparatory school about 20 minutes outside the city of St. Louis. The head athletic trainer, Kristen Jeans, ATC, makes every day an educational and fun environment that helps mold us into being better athletic training students.

A typical day at CBC consists of taping athletes, assisting with rehabilitation exercises, and providing treatment to get the athletes ready for practice or games.

One might think that because CBC is an all-male high school, that we don’t have as many teams to cover as other schools – but this is not the case. During the fall semester, we have the luxury of being able to cover 3 levels of football, 5 levels of soccer, and Cross Country, with multiple basketball and wrestling teams soon to follow in the winter.

All of the athletes, coaches, and staff members at CBC have been so welcoming and we would like to thank them for giving us such a great clinical experience and we look forward to continuing this throughout the year.

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.
