Description: The AMP Sideline Help Coaches’ Clinic provides knowledge, resources, and
tools for coaches and educators in the areas of health and sports medicine. We believe that
partnerships between medical providers and those working directly with students and athletes
provides better care and ideally prevents injuries and improves performance. Recognizing
that most schools in the area do not have direct access to athletic trainers and strength and
conditioning specialists, we try to bridge the gap and work as a team to care for these student
athletes, while remaining within the scope of each individual’s training.

Objectives: Following this clinic coaches and teachers will be able to:
1. Recall the anatomy of the hip and shoulder
2. Explain the basic physiology of the hip and shoulder
3. Distinguish the timing of injury referrals
4. Integrate ankle injury prevention exercises into practice
5. Identify the red flags of mental illness/mental health crisis
6. List mental health resources
7. Support the mental health of athletes
8. Ask healthcare providers to include FIT on exercise prescriptions post concussion
9. Modify drills to include injured athletes in practice to the maximum level they are
10. Implement a dynamic warmup for exercise
11.Plan a strength training program to improve athletic performance
