Outdoor Facility (Athletic Training Room): The outdoor Athletic Training room is located in Englewood's Field House, adjacent to both baseball/softball and football field fields. If the team is traveling without an athletic trainer, our staff will be able to provide all pre-game taping and treatment. Prior notification should be given by the visiting teams' athletic trainer in advance if the team is not traveling with an athletic trainer. Taping will be performed ONLY if the visiting team supplies the tape.
Indoor Facility: Currently Englewood does not have an indoor facility (meaning near the gynmasium). The athletic trainer has a small set up station for each home event. If the visiting team is traveling without an athletic trainer, we are available to provide all pre-taping and treatments. Each team should bring their own taping supplies. Prior notification should be given by the visiting teams' athletic trainer in advance if the team is not traveling with an athletic trainer.
Rules of Facility: If the visiting team (for outdoor sports) is not traveling with an athletic trainer, and would like to get taped, they must report to the Outdoor Facility at least one hour prior to their game or competition. Englewood's Athletic Trainer will not go to the Facility Room for pre-game treatments or taping for visiting teams during warm-ups or conditioning prior to the game starting, unless visiting team shows up late to the game. If the visiting team for indoor sports is traveling without an athletic trainer, and would like services provided by the hosting athletic trainer, the athletes/ team should find the set up station in the gymnasium.
Supplies: For games and events, visiting teams MUST travel with coolers and cups/bottles. Visiting teams are allowed to fill coolers with ice and/or water (in Outdoor Athletic Training Facility), and ONLY water (for indoor events) approximately ONE hour prior to games or events starting. Emergency supplies can be obtained from the Athletic Trainer covering the event.
Ambulance Service: Englewood Athletic Department is currently in the works of changing ambulance services which will be contracted for EVERY HOME JV/Varsity Football game. In case of transport, the abmulance service will transport to the best suited hospital for each injury. In case of an emergency and/or transport at any HOME event that ISN'T football at Englewood, the Athletic Trainer or Coach will call 911 and Jacksonville Fire Rescue Department will respond in response of an emergency. Visiting spectators will be transported by Ambulance Service, if he/she is the student athletes parent or legal gaurdian. In case that parent or legal gaurdian is NOT present, coaching staff is responsible for sending a coach, assistant coach, or administrator with the athlete to the hospital due to the liability of the athlete.
Hospital: Depending on the injury and age will depend on the hospital.
Orthopedic Physicians: An orthopedic physician is scheduled to be at all HOME Varsity Football games depending on availability.
