What to do when you get hurt?
Injuries are a reoccurring incident that commonly happen to athletes who participate in sports. Here at Foley High School the administration, coaches, and athletic trainers work consciously every day to try to prevent and reduce the number and severity of injuries. When an injury does occur, the athlete should report the injury to the coach and athletic trainers as soon as possible. This way our athletic trainers can evaluate the injury and begin the process of what they deem necessary to care for the athlete.
