Beginning in August, Westfields Hospital & Clinic in New Richmond will provide athletic training for various Somerset School District sports, including football, soccer, volleyball and basketball.

The three-year athletic training service agreement, approved by the Somerset Board of Education, provides a Westfields licensed athletic trainer at sports team practices, home athletic events and varsity football away games. In partnership with Dr. Nicholas Weiss, a sports medicine specialist at Twin Cities Orthopedics, Westfields will also provide physician coverage at home football games.

In addition to Somerset schools, Westfields provides athletic training services and summer strength and conditioning for the New Richmond School District.
