Athletic Training Facility and Accommodations

    We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your team to Westside High School. We look forward to making your visit a pleasant and enjoyable one.

     Athletic Training Room: The Athletic Training room is located in Westside's Main Building, across from the girl’s locker room and around the corner from the gym. 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. Modalities and/or taping treatment will be administered only with written note or notification from the ATC or MD.  The Athletic Training Room rules for Westside Athletes also applies to visiting athletes.  There is to be: no profanity, no food or drinks, and no lounging around in the athletic training room.  If prior notice has been given, the athletic training room will be available one hour before and after the athletic event.

    Rules of Pregame Taping/Treatment of Visiting Team: Each facility is equipped with at least one treatment/taping table. If the visiting team is not traveling with an Athletic Trainer, and would like to get taped, they must report to Athletic Training Room at least one hour prior to their game or competition. Westside's Athletic Trainer will not go to the Athletic Training 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.

    Supplies: Water, ice, and cups will be provided on the sideline for indoor games or events. For outdoor games and events, visiting teams MUST travel with coolers and cups/bottles. Visiting teams are allowed to fill coolers with ice and/or water (located at the back of the Field House) approximately ONE hour prior to games or events starting. Emergency supplies can be obtained from the Athletic Trainer covering the event.
