Strength and Conditioning
Recognition of the importance of regular and vigorous exercise is a vital component of any successful athletic program. As part of our goal to develop Champions For Life, our Gator Strong program seeks to instill a lifelong commitment to a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Likewise, our young women learn to compete with grace and intellect at an early age, and then go on to develop the skills needed to build many lifelong attributes such as leadership, respect, resourcefulness, time management, perseverance, sportsmanship and many other characteristics while representing the School on the playing field, in the classroom, and in the world.
Stone Ridge is fortunate to have a highly qualified full-time Athletic Trainer as a member of our staff. On school days our Athletic Trainer’s hours usually begin at 2:00 pm and last until the conclusion of the last practice or home game. During weekends and times when school is not in session, the Athletic Trainer is required to be on site only for contests. Occasionally, the Athletic Trainer will be on site for non-school day practices.
The training program exists to help athletes receive the best possible care. At certain times, however, the Athletic Trainer and training room facilities are extremely busy. Consequently, access to the training room and its services is sometimes limited to athletes who require care only. Training services are granted on a first come, first served basis on practice days. On game days, students will be treated in an order that will allow bus and/or game commitments to be met.
In the event of an athletic injury, the Athletic Trainer is in immediate control. At away contests, if the Athletic Trainer is not present, the host school medical personnel are in control. If no medical personnel are present, members of the coaching staff are instructed to “take charge” of the situation and, if warranted, call for emergency care. All sport related injuries must be reported to the athletic Athletic Trainer and a student may not return to competition without clearance by the Athletic Trainer, which may also include written permission from a physician.
Student-athletes who have been treated for an injury must be cleared by the Athletic Trainer prior to resuming participation.
