Rockdale County Public Schools (RCPS) recently held the 11th Annual Student Athletic Aide Camps to train students in the basics of sports medicine to prepare them to become athletic aides with school sports teams. The camps also expose students to sports medicine and athletic training career fields.
The camps – conducted by RCPS Athletic Coordinator Kechia Rowles at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels – teach students about concussion recognition, stabilizing and supporting sprains and fractures, recognizing signs of injury and illness, human anatomy and physiology, as well as emergency first aid such as CPR, defibrillator application, and the Heimlich maneuver. Students interested in learning more about the program can contact RCPS Athletic Coordinator Kechia Rowles at krowles@rockdale.k12.ga.us.
