Athletic training services are provided to Orono High School through the Institute for Athletic Medicine a service of Fairview Health Services.

All student athletes may utilize the services that are offered by the Institute for Athletic Medicine and Orono High School once the appropriate consent to treat form has been signed by a parent or guardian. This form is now adopted through the MSHSL forms.
