Athletic Training Program
Under the direction of St. John Broken Arrow and Tulsa Bone and Joint, Head Athletic Trainer, Daniel Steward, supervises the Athletic Training Program for Broken Arrow Public Schools. He is under the guidance of Team Physician, Dr. John C. Balbas, MD.
The Athletic Training Program consists of a group of students who are assigned to specific sports teams and provide first aid to BAPS athletes. The Athletic Training Program requires a huge commitment, and students must be highly motivated and willing to put in long hours, as well as have a love for athletics and sports medicine.
In the Athletic Training Program, students will learn sports medicine, observe professional athletic trainers at work and help injured athletes with medicine and rehab. Students are expected to dedicate after school hours to the program and are required to accompany their assigned team to all team events. During football season, students are expected to stay until 6:00 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, and when traveling with a team, it is not unusual for students to return home after midnight.
Any students currently in grades 9th or 10th may apply to this program for their 6th hour class for the next school year. They must submit an application and will need to complete an interview process prior to being accepted into the program. The program requires a multi-year commitment, preferably a student’s entire high school career!
The student training application is due by March 31 of the preceding school year. The physical form is required to be filled out AFTER May 1st for the following school year and is valid until May 31st of the following year.
