Athletic Trainer

Erica Pearson     917-499-8013


AACS has partnered with ATI Physical Therapy to provide a certified athletic trainer during after school hours for our athletic events and practices.  The main objective is to provide AACS student-athletes access to an certified ATI athletic trainer who will assist them in maintaining/improving their physical and mental well being.  Athletic trainers are certified health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize patient and client activity and participation in athletics, work and life. The practice of athletic training encompasses the prevention, examiniation and diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of emergent, acute, subacute, and chronic neuromusculoskeletal conditions and certain medical conditions in order to minimize subsequent impairments, functional limitations, disability, and societal limitations.

When an athlete sustains an injury while participating in AACS interscholastic athletics, he/she will be cared for by the Certified Athletic Trainer. If at any time your child sees a physician (except for routine dental, gynecological, or visual exams), a note of clearance from that doctor must be presented to the athletic trainer before the athlete is permitted to participate in their athletic activity. Clearance notes may be faxed to 410-551-0907.

ATI Physical Therapy has partnered with Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. J.P. Rue.  Dr. Rue, who specializes in Sports Medicine, has agreed to act as the AACS Team Physician.
