Summerville is all about sports year round, there is not a time of year when we don’t have some sport going on. A big part of sports though is making sure there is somebody that people can look to and rely on to make sure that the athletes are going to be taken care of if they are hurt or injured. That is the exact reason why the Summerville sports teams have Athletic Trainers. The Athletic Trainers at Summerville are Scott Little, Tabb Lindeman, and Doyle Church.

Scott Little (Coach Little) has been certified as an AT since 2006. He actually got into athletic training by accident. When he was in high school, Little just wanted to be in a class with his friends and then he ended up liking it.

“My main goal as an AT is to help athletes perform at their peak level in order for them to perform at their best on a daily basis” saidLittle.

Coach Tabb, Coach Church, and Coach Little’s responsibilities are to care for athletes from the time they start a sport to the end of their high school career. Included in that care are seven domains of athletic training:

1.Injury Preventions
2.Clinical evaluation and diagnosis
3.Immediate Care
4.Treatment
5.Rehabilitation and reconditioning
6.Organization and administration
7.Professional responsibility

All these things encompass the care from preventive to post injury. Athletic Trainers are an important part asset to any school, so give the ATs some more appreciation.
