Athletic Trainer Christy Grimes
May 1, 2016
Certified athletic trainer Christy Grimes works with student athletes on a daily basis to treat injuries and get them back to competing in school sports. She stays at the school through the end of every athletic practice, and attends games for all varsity contact sports as well as junior varsity football and soccer games. Grimes said she has gotten some “regulars” in the training room.
“Most of them come every single day, and most of them come twice a day,” Grimes said.
These students will come either during their lunch period, before practice or after practice. Grimes said she gets to help students through not only athletic injuries, but also personal problems as well.
“I usually offer life guidance, some counseling,” Grimes said. “[I help kids] get back on the field faster than if there was no athletic trainer here.”
Grimes said she enjoys her relationship with student athletes from every sport at the school.
“I look forward to that no two days are the same, and trying to get kids back on the field and keeping everyone healthy and happy,” Grimes said.
