Athletic Training Aides

Center Grove students participating in this club are given the opportunity to participate in the healthcare of Center Grove’s student athletes under the supervision of certified and licensed Athletic Trainers.

ATAs must meet requirements in observing and working in the training room set by the certified Athletic Trainers.
