Being a team manager is a very demanding job, but it can be a very rewarding opportunity for students deeply interested in sports but whom, for various reasons, may elect not to participate in as an athlete.

The coach will select a maximum of two managers for each sport and assign the various duties.

With the guidance of coaches, the trainer should be able to handle any athletic injury, which occurs that does not require a physician's attention. If a physician is needed the trainer should endeavor to make the athlete comfortable until help arrives. Under no circumstances should the trainer administer any type of treatment.
3. Trainers will never take any coach's keys from school premises and must make sure that keys are returned to the coach after each day's practice session.

A trainer can request being sent to a trainers' school at least once while in high school. The athletic department will pay registration fees and class expenses. The trainer may have to pay for room and board. If a trainer wants to go to trainers' school a second time, such request will be taken under advisement by the coaches and athletic director. Additional trainer expenses paid by the athletic department a second time would depend on money being available and the number of trainers in the program. A trainer may go to training school every year by personally paying all expenses.
