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.
