Athletic Training

The health and well-being of our student-athletes is of primary importance to the Athletic Department at Hunterdon Central.  Two full-time trainers  work directly with our coaches and School Medical Officer to care for the needs of our student athletes.

We encourage all parents/guardians to contact the head coach or athletic trainers with questions relating to the health and well-being of their children.

On the right side of this webpage, you will find contact information for our trainers, as well as resources with useful information about several health issues affecting young athletes.

Concussion Information

The incidence of a head injury or a concussion in a student-athlete is taken extremely seriously by the Athletic Department, athletic trainers and coaches at Hunterdon Central.  It is imperative that all parents/guardians of young athletes be informed about this type of injury, the potential consequences and the procedures in place to protect their children.

The following concussion information is a 'must-read' for the parents/guardians of student-athletes.
