The mission of the United States Military Academy Preparatory School Sports Medicine Department is to provide quality medical care to the Cadet Candidate Battalion. This will encompass timely injury evaluation and assessment, injury prevention through education and risk management, and rehabilitation services with the goal of physically preparing the Cadet Candidates for acceptance to the United States Military Academy at West Point.
Located on the lower level of the Athletics wing, the USMAPS Sports Medicine facility is designed to accommodate the injury prevention, reconditioning, and rehabilitation needs of all Cadet Candidates. Covering 1,700 square feet, the facility boasts eight treatment tables, cardiovascular equipment, a hydrotherapy room, a Biodex Isokinetic Strengthening Unit, and an array of treatment and therapeutic devices aimed at delivering quality care to Cadet Candidates. Consisting of two Certified Athletic Trainers, the Sports Medicine team works closely with physicians and specialists at the Keller Army Community Hospital to provide all students timely and efficient care with the goal of returning them to activity as quickly and safely as possible.
|Athletic Training Services for Visiting Teams:|
A Certified Athletic Trainer will be on-site for all home competitions. The athletic training staff will provide emergency and acute care for visiting teams while at West Point. USMA Department of Emergency Services ambulance will be on-site for football games / on-call for other events. Water, ice, and cups will be provided. The athletic training staff cannot perform any treatments utilizing treatment modalities (i.e. electrical stimulation, ultrasound) without a written prescription or plan of care from a physician or athletic trainer. The request is subject to the athletic trainers’ availability and location of the competition. Prophylactic taping will only be applied if the visiting team provides the supplies and if the request is made in a timely manner.
