    Before school: Monday to Friday 7:00 am to 8 am (in the fall, football players will attend treatment 45 minutes before their practice/meeting times). If you have after school plans, please arrange to be here at 7:00 am.

    After School: Monday to Thursday from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm - You should attend after school treatments, if your team holds before school a.m. practices. You are still expected to attend your team's practice even if you are injured (unless we've arranged with your coach)
