About The Center Foundation

The Center Foundation partners with Central Oregon high schools to provide certified athletic trainers at their schools and on the sidelines of local sporting events. Our athletic trainers serve more than 3,000 students at over 760 sporting events per year, not only assisting with sports related injuries, but also educating students on the importance of sports safety. We provide certified athletic trainers at no cost to high schools throughout Central Oregon. These athletic trainers provide coverage for practices and home games, on-site medical care five days a week, and teach injury prevention strategies to local students.

The Center Foundation is the only nonprofit in Central Oregon solely dedicated to providing sports medicine as a way to ensure that youth are safe, healthy, and protected in an active lifestyle. We work to:

  • Provide the highest standard of care in youth sports.
  • Improve access to quality sports medicine for all youth, including those who do not otherwise have access to health care professionals.
  • Reduce healthcare costs by performing preventative, emergency, and rehabilitative care on-site at the school, at no cost to student athletes.
  • Educate coaches, parents, and students about young bodies and how to prevent lifelong injuries.
