A healthcare provider with several facilities in the San Fernando Valley will be paying the salaries of athletic trainers at seven high schools as part of a program to treat and prevent injuries in students participating in sports.

Providence Health & Services, a Catholic nonprofit organization, announced the program last week, with representatives saying they are in the process of adding more schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District.

For now, Taft in Woodland Hills is the only LAUSD school that will have a trainer paid for by Providence.

Two Burbank Unified School District schools,

Burbank and Burroughs, are included.

Private schools include Alemany in Mission Hills, Notre Dame in Sherman Oaks, Sierra Canyon in Chatsworth and Providence in Burbank.

Athletic trainers are not required for high school sports programs in California and a few other states.
