Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine logoThe Damien Sports Medicine program serves the Damien athletic community by providing on-field medical coverage for all home practices and athletic events while also providing students insight into the fields of sports medicine and athletic training. Damien High School currently has one certified athletic trainer on staff: Gabrielle White.


The Sports Medicine Program consists of three academic classes. In addition to learning CPR/First Aid and the basics of injury assessment, management, and rehabilitation, students are exposed to several other career paths within the healthcare field.
Students also have the opportunity to join the Sports Medicine Club, which is directed by our Head Athletic Trainer, Gabrielle White. Students in the club assist Ms. White with providing on-field sports coverage for all home practices and athletic events. The Sports Medicine Club is open to students from Damien High School, St. Lucy's Priory High School, and Pomona Catholic High School.
Damien High School is also a clinical site for the Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) programs at the University of La Verne and Colorado Mesa University. Clinical education experience is designed to provide MSAT students with quality, supervised learning under the AT so they may develop the entry-level clinical proficiencies and professional behavior required of an athletic trainer.
The goal of the club is to provide students from Damien, St. Lucy’s and Pomona Catholic who are interested in pursuing a career in the medical field with knowledge and experience in the sports medicine setting. Students will learn a variety of information, including but not limited to basic first aid, CPR, taping techniques, orthopedic injuries and assessment, and various general medical conditions. They work with and learn from the MSAT students from the University of La Verne, as well as assist each of our athletic trainers.
