Sports Medicine: Athletic Training
T.L. Hanna’s athletic training staff is responsible for the care of each student-athlete on campus. Athletic Trainers are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians. The services provided by Athletic Trainers compromise prevention, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Athletic Trainers work under the direction of physicians, as prescribed by state licensure. T. L. Hanna has two full-time Athletic Trainers.
Athletic Training Room
The main athletic training room is located in the athletic field house (all outdoor sports) and a secondary athletic training room is located beside the main gym (all indoor sports). The training room will be open for treatments and evaluations before school each morning from 7:30 am until 8:15 am, during all 3 lunch shifts, and after school until practices are complete. Students can also receive treatments during the school day if necessary if they are in a weight training or PE class and have teacher’s approval. We will never ask for a student athlete to come and see us if they are in an academic class.
Main Athletic Training Room: (864) 260-5110 Ext 85785
Secondary Athletic Training Room: (864) 260-5583
Jereme Vendette, MS, LAT, ATC
I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself and my role here at TL Hanna. My name is Jereme Vendette and I am the new full time athletic trainer hired by Anderson 5 School District to be on campus for your athletes throughout the school day and after school for practices and events.
I came to TL Hanna from Camden County HS in Kingsland, Georgia where I have been working with HS athletes for 20 years and have been a certified athletic trainer since 1995. I received my undergraduate training at Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland and received my Master’s degree from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville.
My role at TL Hanna is to help provide and coordinate medical care of your student athlete receive the best possible medical care available, either in the training room or help arrange medical appointments to the proper specialist if needed. All of this is to help your student athlete return to athletics as quickly and safely as possible. We will continue to work very closely with PlaySafe, Inc. who will continue to provide 2 athletic trainers after 1:30 pm each day to provide a very in-depth and as complete as possible athletic training program.
If your student athlete comes home with an injury or if you have any questions about your student athlete injury or medical status, please feel free to contact me either by cell at (912) 270-0103 or by email at email@example.com. Please encourage your student athlete to report an injury to the training staff as quickly as possible so we can either begin treatment or work with you to get them to the correct physician. As a reminder, if your student athlete does go to a physician, we must have documentation from the physician about their limits and playing status.
Again, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time. We are here to help your student athlete return to their sport as quickly as possible.
