National Group Names Wheeler "Safe Sports School"

As one of the few public or private schools with a full-time Athletic Trainer, the Wheeler School has earned a "First Team" ranking from the National Athletic Trainers’ Association and a "Safe Sports School" award. The award champions safety and recognizes secondary schools that provide safe environments for student athletes. The award reinforces the importance of providing the best level of care, injury prevention and treatment.


“The Wheeler School is honored to receive this 1st Team recognition from NATA, and we remain committed to keeping our student athletes safe during physical education classes, team practices and games so they can accomplish their own goals of great competition, winning records, fair sportsmanship and good health. Our goal is to lead our athletics program to the highest safety standards for our players,” said Nate Withington, Athletic Trainer.

Wheeler is one of the few schools with a full-time athletic trainer, a health-care professional dedicated to our students’ well being on and off the field. See our athletic training facilities and learn more in this quick video.
