Mr. Richard Kates

Students involved in the after school Athletic Training/ Sports Medicine Club are interested in the medical field and learn hands on first aid and care and prevention of athletic injuries. Students are involved in helping out all sports teams at Red Mountain High School. Students learn everything from rehabilitation of athletic injuries to taping and stretching techniques to basic first aid and treatment of athletic injuries.
