Sacred Heart Academy’s Athletics program continues to flourish as Athletic Director, Mr. Ray Degnan proudly announces the addition of Miss Emma Ofner as SHA’s full-time Athletic Trainer.
Emma received her Master of Science in Athletic Training from California University of Pennsylvania in 2017. Since then she has had a wealth of hands-on experience in the field including her most recent role at Chase Collegiate School where she provided Athletic Training services to the lower, middle and upper school students.
Emma’s presence in our Athletic program will be invaluable to our student athletes. “The best part about my job are the bonds that I make with the student athletes.”, Emma says. “Being able to teach them how to care for themselves and to prevent, or care for injuries will help them maintain their athleticism throughout and even beyond high school.”. Emma is a certified first responder and will be present during home games.
Emma is looking forward to developing a great sports medicine program at SHA, including an off-season strength and conditioning program for our athletes to maintain their health and prevent injury year-round.
SHARK NATION is thrilled to welcome Emma to our school community!
