The Hotchkiss School currently employs three full-time athletic trainers. They are certified by the National Athletic Trainers Association, the governing body for athletic trainers. Our trainers are present for practices and games each day.

Athletic trainers at Hotchkiss are healthcare professionals who collaborate with the medical staff of the Wieler Health Center to optimize the activity and participation of student athletes. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations and disabilities. To become certified, athletic trainers must earn a degree from an accredited athletic training program at a college or university. The curriculum includes instruction and clinical experiences in the areas of injury/illness, human anatomy and physiology, therapeutic methods, and nutrition. Athletic training is not the same as personal training.


The athletic training room is a spacious, modern facility adjacent to the fitness center in the MAC. It includes a treatment tables, a hydrotherapy area, and a space for rehabilitation exercises. The athletic training room includes equipment to help student-athletes in rehabilitation and physical therapy.

Concussion Evaluation and Testing

As part of our concussion management program, all new students will be given a baseline ImPACT Test during the first few weeks of school. ImPACT is a user-friendly, computer based testing program specifically designed for the management of sports-related concussion. Visit for more information.
