February is CTE Month, CTE stands for Career and Technology Education. Did you know that we have 13 CTE programs right here on Mainland's campus? Today we are featuring Athletic Training.

 

The Mainland Athletic Training Student Aide Association was founded in 1977 by Dr. Eppelheimer, the first Certified Athletic Trainer in Volusia County. The last 4 head athletic trainers are alumni of this incredible program that he built 46 years ago. The mission of the athletic training program is to develop well-rounded Athletic Training Student Aides who possess the necessary skills to assist the athletic training staff with the care of Mainland High School’s athletes and propel students into the field of athletic training with a solid foundation of the necessary skills and knowledge to be successful. The purpose of the Athletic Training Student Aide is to assist the athletic training staff at Mainland High School in carrying out their duties as it applies to the medical care of the student-athlete. The student works under the direct supervision of the Certified Athletic Trainer. Additionally, the student aide position is an opportunity for students to gain practical experience in the allied health field of athletic training and to help the student prepare for his/her career choice, while developing relationships with the athletic training staff, team doctors, fellow students, student-athletes, coaches, and administrators. The student aide will also be given the opportunity to experience travel, team wins and losses, and grow personally as an Athletic Training Student Aide and individual. Our program has been recognized multiple times not only by Volusia County but also the Athletic Training Association of Florida.

 

Show your spirit for the pep rally tomorrow:

Freshman wear white

Sophomores wear gold

Juniors wear blue

Seniors wear black

Faculty/staff wear black faculty shirts
