Our Mission:

The Governor Mifflin Sports Medicine staff will strive to provide every student-athlete with the most comprehensive, highest quality individual sports medicine health care available in a professional, efficient, compassionate and service-oriented manner. A diversified program of prevention, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation will assure a positive healthy recovery experience, an improved quality of life, a safe return to full athletic participation and continued athletic success. We will work in coordination with the team sports medicine physicians and community health care providers (EMS, police, school nurses) to provide the best possible care to all participating student athletes.

Who are athletic trainers?

Athletic trainers (ATs) are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who render service or treatment, under the direction of or in collaboration with a physician, in accordance with their education, training and the state’s statutes, rules and regulations.  As a part of the health care team, services provided by athletic trainers include primary care, injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, emergent care, examination and clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.

Athletic Physicals

Physical examinations are required for any athlete wishing to participate in a sport. Physicals are offered by the Governor Mifflin School District prior to the start of each sports season. If student athletes opt to have a physical provided by the District during one of the four designated athletic physical dates, the physical is provided free of charge. Please check the District calendar as physical dates are announced throughout the year. Athletes my also opt to have a physical performed by a private physician. The forms below must be completed and returned to the Athletic Department before any student can participate on a Governor Mifflin Sports team:
