What is Bastrop Sports Medicine?
The Bastrop Sports Medicine Program is a very important part of the overall success of all Bastrop athletic programs. We are responsible for the prevention, care, treatment, and rehabilitation of all athletic injuries that our athletes encounter. The student athletic trainers at Bastrop High School assist the Certified/Licensed Athletic Trainers in all aspects of athletic training. Student athletic trainers assist with or perform duties such as taping, administering treatments, providing first-aid, injury evaluation, stretching, and are certified in CPR/AED and First-aid. Our student athletic trainers are dedicated to both the well being of our student athletes as well as themselves.
