With the start of the new school year, the athletic season is right around the corner.
Injuries will be a part of the game and some can be serious.
To help prepare for the upcoming season, Dignity Health has teamed up with Gilbert Public Schools to help prepare teams for the fall season.
Campo Verde High School played host to pre-season training for high school athletic trainers.
“The key part of our job is to be ready and know exactly what to do when stuff goes wrong or an athlete gets injured,” said Suzie Squires, Dignity Health Athletic Trainer who works with Campo Verde and Mesquite High Schools.
