Sports Medicine at Tabor

The athletic training room is located on the first floor of the Fish Center for Health and Wellness. It is staffed by two certified athletic trainers who work in conjunction with the nurses at the Health Center. The room is open to all Tabor students, no matter their activity level. Additionally, our trainers coordinate, as necessary, a fully detailed and integrated concussion management protocol supported by our Health Center personnel, coaches, faculty, and the Director of Studies Office.
The certified athletic trainer is a highly educated and skilled professional specializing in athletic health care. In cooperation with physicians and other allied health personnel, the AT functions as an integral member of the athletic health care team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, sports medicine clinics, professional sports programs and other athletic health care settings.

Football Contact Policy

Tabor fully supports and abides by the New England Private Schools Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Football Coaches Association Contact Policy. (See full policy) The focus of the NEPSAC policy is on preseason contact and acclimatization and in-season contact. Tabor goes a step further than the NEPSAC policy in decreasing the live contact time from a maximum of 90 minutes per week to 30 minutes per week on Wednesdays only for our varsity squad. Sub-varsity athletes practice four days a week and also abide by these guidelines with live contact totalling 50 minutes a week over two of our practice days. The teaching of proper technique, with safety a primary point of emphasis, is a priority in our practice sessions at all levels of play.
