Sports Medicine

Hawken Athletics provides world-class sports medicine care for our students and athletes though a partnership with University Hospitals Sports Medicine Program.  Our Head Certified Athletic Trainer, Sarah Royan, is the best in the business.  Sarah and all UH athletic trainers are schooled in the prevention, examination and diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries and certain medical conditions in order to minimize re-injury and to facilitate the safe return to athletics.  Our athletic trainers also participate in UH-sponsored return to play and performance enhancement programs.  Other highlights of our sports medicine program include:
  • Expedited appointments and direct access to the team physician when needed.
  • Access to the Healthy Roster injury tracking program, including the ability for secure communication among athletic trainer, coach, and parents.
  • On-site medical care for home and away practices, events, and competitions.
  • The development of emergency action plans to maintain safety of our athletes.
  • Sports-related educational offerings for athletes, coaches, and parents.
  • Concussion management in collaboration with concussion-trained physicians.
  • Access to a variety of support services including nutritionists, sports psychologists, and sports medicine specialists.
