Education-Based Athletics Grant

McMichael High School

McMichael High School was a recipient of the education-based athletics grant for the 2019-2020 school year. Grant funds were used to facilitate their “Bridge the Gap McMichael” initiative. Equipment was purchased to prevent, educate, and rehabilitate student-athletes, with a specific focus on lower body extremities given the high prevalence of these injuries in past athletic seasons. Some goals accomplished through this initiative were: returning athletes to playing healthy and injury free, increased participation in all sports, increased participation in sports after injury, increased enrollment in healthy living courses, and decreased lower body injuries in student-athletes.
