Athletic training room hours
The athletic training room opens daily at 12pm for treatment and evaluation. Due to occasional schedule changes (based on the season, team departure times and games), hours will vary and appointments at other times may be scheduled with the athletic trainer.
The athletic trainer is on site for all home athletic events, including practices and games. If not in the athletic training room, the athletic trainer can be found in the Athletics Office (in the gymnasium) or outside on the playing fields.
Daily treatment and taping takes place in the athletic training room, while fitness training for our teams takes place next door in the fitness room. A variety of fitness, treatment and rehabilitation equipment is available to our athletes and is supervised and implemented by the athletic trainer and/or coaches.

Orthopaedic & Neurosurgery Specialists (ONS) has become an invaluable resource for Sacred Heart Athletics in the last few years. While supporting Sacred Heart’s athletic trainer with orthopaedic and neurological consults, speaking to our athletes and parents about important health topics, and helping to implement ImPACT testing in 2010, the doctors at ONS always manage to accommodate our athletes in a timely manner. Our team doctor at ONS include Dr. Katie Vadasdi, with neurological support from Dr. Mark Camel.
The Sacred Heart Greenwich-ONS alliance provides professional medical support to the Sacred Heart Athletic Department. Sacred Heart families are under no obligation to be seen by an ONS physician. However, if the family chooses to see the doctors at ONS, the Sacred Heart athletic trainer and ONS physicians will stay connected throughout the evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation process of that student-athlete.
