Resilience, determination, and sportsmanship. It's not what we achieve. It's who we become.


Since 1995, Detroit Country Day School has staffed experienced, full-time athletic trainers tending to the needs of a busy, successful, interscholastic athletic program.

Currently, our two full-time Certified Athletic Trainers (ATCs) provide sports medicine services primarily to our Upper and Middle Schools, which consists of 107 active teams.  These services include, but are not limited to: 

  • Injury evaluation
  • First aid and primary emergency care
  • Rehabilitative exercise prescription
  • Preventative stretching programs
  • Facilitation of specialized medical care
  • Consultation on our programs’ strength and conditioning
  • Post-injury/postoperative rehabilitation
  • Determining return-to-play eligibility after injury
  • Mentoring of students interested in medical professions 

Our athletic trainers are dedicated to maintaining the health of the Yellowjacket student athlete through many of the services listed above.  We pride ourselves on working closely with the student athlete, parent, coaching staff, medical professional, and faculty in order to effectively provide efficient medical care to our Detroit Country Day School student athletes.

Athletic Training Room

Student-athletes receive athletic injury evaluation, assessment of need for further medical referral, athletic rehabilitation, and injury prevention strategies as part of their services in the Athletic Training Room.

This is typically done during lunch, "free-blocks' in the afternoon, and during the after-school scheduled hours.

When one of our ATC's determines that additional medical referral is needed for the student-athlete, one or both of the parents will be contacted to discuss options. 

All athletic rehabilitation is done under the direction of the student-athlete's treating physician, or one of DCDS' team physicians.
