Athletic Physicals - IMPORTANT INFO
The VHSL requires a current physical exam each school year for all students participating in JV or
Varsity level sports. More information under the "Physicals" Tab at left.
Athletic Training is the prevention, care, and rehabilitation of sports related injuries. FDHS proudly offers health care for our injured student athletes through our sports medicine program. I am Becky Anhold, the licensed, certified athletic trainer at Fort Defiance High School. I am responsible to oversee the health care of the athletes on each of the 31 junior varsity and varsity athletic teams.
We believe in a team concept when it comes to sports medicine. Together with the ATC, the coaches, student athletes, parents, administration, and officials work to provide student athletes a safe athletic environment and efficient care for injuries should they occur. Our coaches are all provided training in First Aid, CPR, Automated External Defibrillation (AED), and Concussion Prevention & Recognition.
My job would be difficult without the help of student athletic training assistants. Student assistants volunteer their time to learn & work in the program. They must obtain certification in First Aid, CPR, AED, Bloodborne Pathogens, Concussion & Heat Illness Recognition. The students assist with providing drinking water, injury ice, and assisting the ATC or Coach with first aid care for minor injuries.
We work very closely with a network of health care professionals. We are eternally grateful to our Team Physician, Dr. Robert Kennedy, for all that he does for our program. Many other local orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, chiropractors, dietitians, sports psychologists, work with us as well to ensure our athletes obtain the best possible health care.
Please feel free to contact me should you have questions or concerns!
