The Van Alstyne High School athletic program has a high number of athletes to Athletic Trainer ratio and it is difficult to provide medical coverage to every team, from freshman to varsity that represents VA High School. The Athletic Training Program was developed to assist with the needed medical coverage and provide hands on medical experience for students who are interested in the medical field. The Athletic Training Student Aide (ATSA) acts as an extension of the Athletic Trainer and provides first responder coverage to their assigned team. This can be a large responsibility for the ATSA, however if the ATSA uses good time management, communicates well, and is committed to the ATSA program, it can work.
