We want to ensure our athletes and families learn healthy conditioning habits and sports safety, and Optim Sports Medicine is partnering with our school district to do just that.

Optim Sports Medicine will offer a free workshop entitled, Protecting Our Student Athletes, for all student athletes and future athletes district-wide, and their families on Tuesday, Aug. 6, from 6:30 p.m. - 8 p.m., in the Statesboro High School auditorium.

 

Optim's leading sports medicine physicians and trainers will share information on hydration, heat safety, concussion management, pre-season conditioning, a Q&A session, and more.  This is a time for parents and athletes to learn best practices to help protect athletes and encourage safety and good health.
