Athletic Trainer Information

Lancaster Mennonite High School has the privilege of partnering with CPRS Physical Therapy to provide Ann Seaton as the athletic trainer. As the athletic trainer, Ann is available to work with any PIAA athlete who encounters an injury or illness.

Athletic trainers are “health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients.[i]

The certified athletic trainer (ATC) is the first person the athlete should be in contact with when there is an injury.  The ATC is onsite at all practices and games and provides immediate care for athletic injuries.  Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis and intervention of emergency, acute and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations and disabilities (NATA).  Athletic trainers are also imperative in challenging injured athletes in a sport specific nature for the most efficient and safe return to play.  The ATC is able to triage each athlete to the appropriate sports medicine team member, if necessary.

Our athletic trainer is available at the school each day starting about 1:30PM and before and after every home game. She provides variable hours on Saturdays and non-school days to accommodate for games and practices.

Sports Physicals

Every LMS athlete must complete a physical packet. Each student athlete will need to complete and turn in every form in the physical packet on the deadline set by school administration. 

Winter sports physicals are due by Friday, November 15, 2019. You can drop it off at the high school office, fax it to the high school office or email it to Miss Ann or Ms. Emily.

The Physical Packet includes:

  • PIAA Physical Form (Sections 1-6)
  • PIAA Parental and Physical Recertification Form (Section 7  is only needed if physical is dated 6 weeks or prior to the start of the sports season- for winter sports, if your physical is dated October 7, 2019 or before)

Recertification form

PIAA Parental and Physical Recertification Form (Section 7) is only needed by athletes whose physical is dated six weeks or prior to the start date of their sports season. 

Concussion Baseline Testing: ImPACT

The ImPACT program is a computerized test that assists our team physician/athletic trainer in evaluating and treating head injuries (e.g., concussions). The ImPACT test is for ninth and eleventh graders or any student new to LMS or to an above-mentioned contact/collision sport. Baseline testing will be held at the high school prior to the first day of practice. Specific dates and times will be determined by the Athletic Trainer and posted on the LMS Athletics homepage a few weeks before the start of each sports season. This non-invasive test is set up in “video-game” type format and takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.

Dates for winter season ImPACT testing (please meet a few minutes beforehand at the Ag Computer lab):

*TBD

Each student athlete participating in any one of the following sports must complete an ImPACT baseline test every two years:

  • Girls/Boys Soccer
  • Girls Field Hockey
  • Girls/Boys Basketball
  • Boys/Girls Volleyball
  • Girls Softball
  • Boys Baseball

If you have any questions about the Physical Packet, ImPACT testing or about the sports medicine program, please contact Ann Seaton, LAT, ATC.
