Fremont Health’s Sports Medicine team is providing free training coverage at eight area schools – Bergan, Cedar Bluffs, Fremont High, Logan View, Lyons, Mead, North Bend, and Scribner-Snyder.

At Fremont Health’s Saturday Sports Injury Clinic, injured high school and college athletes from any school in the region can receive a free assessment from Certified Athletic Trainers – professionals who specialize in the prevention, assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of injured athletes.

The clinic is open Saturdays, now through May 2015 (excluding major holidays), from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., and is held in the athletic training room at Fremont High School, 16th and Lincoln.

Athletes should enter on the east side, near the tennis courts, and are asked to check in by 10 a.m.

In the event additional medical evaluation and/or treatment by a physician is recommended, the athlete will be given the option to choose an Emergency Department, their primary care physician or an orthopedic surgeon.

Charges incurred for additional medical services are the responsibility of the student’s parent or legal guardian and will be billed accordingly.

In addition to the free sports injury clinic and athletic training coverage at area high schools, Fremont Health’s Sports Medicine program also provides free basic sports screens to hundreds of student-athletes each year.

For more information on these programs or any other Rehab/Sports Medicine service, call (402) 727-3657.
