Highlands Ranch High School will host the 3rd Annual Athletic Training Student Aide Challenge on February 27, 2017. This event will recognize and reward the high school students who spend endless hours working with our athletic trainers to learn about the profession, provide support to our athletic teams, and often go unrecognized. This event provides an opportunity to recognize their efforts and reward them with an evening of camaraderie and competition.

Students will be competing for points in both practical / skill based competitions, as well as, knowledge based competitions and will have an opportunity to learn more about the profession of athletic training. Registration is required prior to the event through the Athletic Trainer at each high school.

Check-in begins at 5:30pm. Parents and spectators are welcome.

Please call David Whitelock at 303-387-2190 for more information or questions.
