St. Francis Sports Medicine Classes are Fun and Practical

St. Francis High School Sports Medicine classes are extremely fun and very practical for those interested in any type of fields of medicine. Pictured, you will see a couple of our St. Francis Golden Knights working on a head injury lab in our sports medicine class. Anatomy, cranial nerves and balance tests are all part of the head injury lab.

St. Francis High School ‘s Sports Medicine Program strives to promote excellence in healthcare for athletics. Headed by Certified Athletic Trainer Eli Hallak, ATC, EMT, the program has evolved into a multifaceted entity within the science and athletic departments. The “Introductory Kinesiology and Rehabilitation” Sports Medicine Course was created in 1999. It later became the 1st UC approved lab science course, in the field of Sports Medicine, in California. The program has allowed students insight into the field of sports medicine/athletic training along with many other careers in the healthcare industry.

Students are the main focus of the program. Whether SFHS students are being treated in our state of the art Sports Medicine Complex, working at interscholastic games as a rookie athletic training student, assisting as a Senior or Head Athletic Training Student for a specific team their senior year, promoting the health and safety of all the Golden Knights and anyone visiting the SFHS campus is our primary focus.
