CaroMont Hosts Coaches Symposium


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.
