Assisting your athletes

Merion Mercy Academy and Main Line Health provide the best sports medicine support to our students.

At the high school level, the athletic trainer is focused on three things:

  • Being on-site, visible participants: We manage injuries, safety, performance and health of your athletes. We take care of injuries on the field, whether it’s first aid, head or neck injuries, cardiac issues or emergency care. We are proactive and make safety recommendations. 

  • Managing the athletic training room: We are on-site, order necessary supplies and create emergency action plans. After school, we evaluate students to determine who needs quick care, further evaluation and a referral to a physician or specialist. We also manage concussion programs to ensure your athletes receive concussion evaluation and treatment quickly.

  • Coordinating appropriate care: If an athlete needs additional care or support, our team will connect them to physical therapists, physicians, nurses or psychologists.
