Do you have a love for sports and fitness? Do you have a desire to work with athletes in the future? The Bethlehem Area Vocational-Technical School’s new Athletic Health and Fitness Program is designed to prepare students for careers related to sports medicine, health fitness and kinesiology. In this program our students will be educated on the theories of injury prevention & recognition, emergency care, creating exercise & rehabilitation programs along with over all mental and physical health wellness. They will learn medical terminology, safety procedures, nutritional facts, basic anatomy, and kinesiology. Our students will also become certified in First Aid, CPR, AED, and BloodBorne Pathogens.

Directly out of high school our students will be qualified to become Personal Trainers, Licensed Athletic Coaches, Fitness Instructors, and Nutrition and Wellness Consultants. The earning of the entry level certifications in our program will allow our students the opportunity to advance forward to the next level of education easier than the average high school student. If our students desire to pursue their education further they will open themselves up to careers in Athletic Training, Physical Therapy, Kinesiology and Exercise Science/Physiology. There are so many different paths that our students can take after being part of our program.


The road to success in the sports medicine field starts with us, Bethlehem Area Vocational-Technical School’s new Athletic Health and Fitness Program.
