Taylor ISD Athletic Training -- "Once a Duck, Always a Duck"
As the Taylor Independent School District Athletic Trainers, we are actively working to keep our student-athletes safe, healthy, and playing the sports that they love. Athletic Trainers (ATs) are highly educated in sports medicine sciences, and specialize in athletic injury recognition, evaluation, diagnostics, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation (we don't just tape ankles!). ATs collaborate and work closely with coaches, administration, physicians, nurses, chiropractors, physical therapists, and dietitians. We're committed to ensuring our student-athletes are comfortable and confident coming to us with injuries, and make sure that they receive the best care possible.
