In honor of National Athletic Trainer Month we are recognizing our onsite athletic trainer Sarah Moss. Sarah has been working with Bondurant-Farrar for 5 years. Sarah received her Bachelors Degree from Northwestern College (Orange City) in Athletic Training. Sarah also completed her masters degree from A. T. Still University in Kinesiology with Sports Psychology and Exercise & Rehabilitation concentrations. Sarah started the path into athletic training after getting injured as a High School athlete. She realized she wanted to be able to help people, while at the same time being around sports. Sarah says her main goal is to keep athletes safe and healthy, while also providing education about their injuries. Sarah works to keep injured athletes engaged and involved with the sport, while at the same time not inhibiting the rehabilitation process.
Senior athletes Avery Fried and Brenna Petersen had this to say about our athletic trainer, “Sarah makes a big impact on her athletes every day. She is always encouraging her student-athletes daily and makes sure that they get the best care that they can get. Not only does she want the best for her athletes here at Bondurant, but she is always looking out for kids on opposing teams. If you need someone to talk to about your day or need advice, she is there to listen. Here at Bondurant, we have the best athletic trainer, and us athletes couldn’t be more appreciative.”
Senior athlete Jackson Hill had the following to say about Sarah, “Sarah takes what it means to be an athletic trainer to another level. Her care and compassion for us athletes go far beyond the job description. I am forever grateful for the rehab and injury prevention she has provided throughout my four years at Bondurant-Farrar high school. When I was going through my various injuries Sarah was always there to provide a good recovery plan as well quick access to specialist if needed, but much more then that Sarah has went out of her way to build authentic relationships. I always knew that if an unexpected injury did happen there would be a friendly and compassionate face running over to make the situation better. I’m for ever grateful for the advice she has provided when it comes to properly taking care of my body but also the advice for life. Lastly, if you need a little pick me up as well as a sucker she is always there!”
Sarah we greatly appreciate your dedication and work with our young people!
