Athletic Training Facility and Fitness Center

 

Oratory Prep is home to one of the area’s premier athletic training facilities and fitness centers.

 

The athletic training facility is located in DeGaeta Hall and houses treatment tables, therapeutic modalities such as moist heat, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and GameReady and a variety of rehabilitation equipment. The facility is open during lunch periods by appointment (scheduled the day before) for those student-athletes in need of treatment for their injuries and reopens at the end of the school day for treatment, rehabilitation, practice and contest coverage. Athletes should report all injuries to the athletic trainer by noon of the next day either in person or via email.

 

The fitness center is also located on the lower floor of  DeGaeta Hall. The fitness center is open Monday-Thursday from 8:30am-12:30PM during the summer months and Monday-Friday from 3:00PM-5:30PM during the school year. This state-of-the-art fitness facility houses free weights, kettle bells, cardio equipment (treadmills, elliptical machines and stationary bikes), bench and squat racks and a multitude of weight machines. All Oratory Prep students are encouraged to use the fitness center. Any alumni who wish to use the facility may do so, but must have a completed OP Fitness Center General Rules/Waiver and Release Form on file with the school. The form can be found on the Forms section of the Athletics Menu on the website.

Janet's Law

Oratory Prep School has gone above and beyond the requirements of Janet's Law to ensure the safety of our students both in the classroom and on the athletics field. Oratory Prep faculty, staff, and coaches are all required to hold current CPR/AED cards. Coaches are also required to hold certification in First Aid. These courses are offered to our employees by the Head Athletic Trainers who is a Certified Instructor for the American Red Cross. Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are located in the school building and available during the school day. AEDs are also on hand at all home athletic events and are taken on all field trips/retreats.
