Symposium Offers Coaches Education and Resources to Keep Student Athletes
Safe and Healthy
CaroMont Health welcomed more than 60 coaches last Friday at the Gaston
County Coaches Symposium. The day-long Symposium, hosted by CaroMont Rehab
& Sports Medicine and CaroMont’s Athletic Training program,
provided education and information about keeping high school athletes
safe and healthy.
The Symposium featured informative presentations on common injuries related
to sports and weight training, the pros and cons of energy drinks and
sports psychology for high school-aged athletes. Keynote speaker Tony
Eubanks, former basketball player for Ole Miss, spoke to the audience
about his career and experience playing professionally overseas for more
than ten years. He also served as chaplain at the University of Georgia
from 2000 to 2004 and at Clemson University from 2004 to 2010.
The program was provided as part of the athletic training partnership between
CaroMont Health and Gaston County Schools, and will continue to be offered
on a yearly basis to Gaston County School coaches for educational credits.
