Athletic Trainer's Page
Hewlett High School has two outreach Athletic Trainers; Melanie Gordon and Michael Regan
The role of the Athletic Trainer is to: provide first aid and to recognize and treat the athlete’s injuries • to provide rehabilitation services and/or recommend further medical treatment • to provide prophylactic taping to athletes to prevent injury • to provide coaches with up to date information on conditioning and the prevention of injuries.
Injuries: Any student sustaining an injury while participating in an interscholastic sports program should report the injury to his/her coach, and/or athletic trainer immediately. If this injury requires medical evaluation or follow-up, the coach along with the athletic trainer will complete an accident/insurance claim form that provides information related to the injury and submit an incident report to the school nurse within 24 hours. Parents/guardians are responsible for submitting all insurance claims. These are not submitted by the school. Any injury requiring medical follow-up and/or continued medical or chiropractic treatment will need to have a written medical clearance from the physician/chiropractor before the student will be allowed to return to physical education or interscholastic athletics. Injured athletes cannot return to interscholastic athletics until participation in physical education commences. In all cases when a question regarding the health, fitness or ability of an athlete to return to athletic participation is raised, the decision of the Chief School Physician will be final.
Health Insurance Coverage: The district provides an insurance program to pay for valid claims on an “excess basis” for injuries received while participating in the Hewlett-Woodmere Public Schools Athletic Program. All claims must first be submitted to the student’s personal insurance carrier.
Peak Performance Physical Therapy Sports Outreach: Both Melanie and Michael are outreach Athletic Trainers who work through Peak Performance Physical Therapy in Lynbrook, NY. Their Sports Outreach program provides athletes of Hewlett High School with free athlete screenings, personal training, and free sports training lectures.
