The Marian High School Athletic Training Office is responsible for delivering high quality medical care to over 500 Marian student-athletes in 23 athletic programs. We are dedicated to the prevention, management, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries using evidence-based techniques in order to return our student-athletes safely back to competition.
In caring for our student-athletes, we strictly abide by rules and regulations set forth by the Indiana High School Athletic Association, the National Athletic Trainers Association, and the American Medical Association. Student athletes who incur injuries during school-sanctioned training or events should report to the athletic trainer for guidance on proper management and steps that may be required before returning to participation.
The purpose of our program
- Integrate athletic injury education to student-athletes and parents.
- Allow for easy access to medical services.
- Encourage a philosophy within the coaching staff that values proper care of injured athletes.
- Return student-athletes to competition when medically safe to do so.
Role of the Athletic Trainer
Athletic Training is an allied health profession dedicated to providing health care to physically active individuals. Marian High School employs one full-time certified athletic trainer. Certified athletic trainers specialize in the prevention, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic related injuries and illnesses.
In an effort to provide the best quality health care to the individuals they serve, certified athletic trainers perform a wide array of duties and responsibilities. Tasks include coordination of pre-participation physical exams, selection of protective equipment, daily coverage of practices and games, application of various therapeutic modalities, and designing and implementing injury-specific rehabilitation programs.
Marian High School encourages student-athletes and their parents to communicate with our certified athletic trainer about any questions or issues that may arise during their time at Marian. We are all on the same team, working toward a common goal.
Injuries Sustained by Student Athletes
If a student is injured during athletic training or competition, his/her parent should seek medical care for the student through their usual medical provider. Once care is initiated, the parent must contact the Marian Athletic Training Office, who will obtain information required to complete the school’s portion of the claim form. The claim form will then be mailed to the student’s parent, who must complete the parent/student portion of the form.
The parent must mail the completed from along with an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) along with corresponding itemized provider statement(s) to the plan administrator’s address shown on the claim form. All correspondence after this point will be between the plan administrator and the student’s parent.
Completed claim forms must be submitted within 90 days of the date of injury.
Injuries sustained by students during the course of the school day will be managed through the Health and Wellness Office. Students with an injury that must be treated by medical professionals must report to the Health and Wellness Office to begin the process of insurance reporting.
