Dear North Hills Parents, Coaches, and Staff:
I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the events of this past spring’s pandemic. I would like to assure everyone involved, that moving forward every effort will be made to support your school’s sports programs as safely as possible from a sports medicine perspective. We have focused our efforts on preparing protocols for pre participation sports physical exams, concussion baseline testing and daily sports medicine activities that promote a safer environment for the student athletes, coaches, and our staff. It is important to recognize that our efforts may mean that our daily procedures are more focused on safety, screening and cleaning more frequently than we normally would in a day. This focus could slow our daily process, but we will do our best to not disrupt a practice or game. Our athletic trainers and physicians look forward to seeing you all in the near future. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
In Good Health,
Craig Castor, LAT, ATC
