Our Goal

The Sports Medicine Academy is open to 9th, 10th and 11th grade students who are interested in medicine and patient care for the athletic and active population. We strive to educate students to be the healthcare providers of the future by preparing them to pursue advanced degrees and/or their passion in a career after graduation. SMA 10th graders are eligible to join the Sports Medicine Team which offers on campus experience in caring for the student athlete.

The Venice High School Sports Medicine Team, the Venice High Chapter of National Honor Society for Sports Medicine and the Venice High HOSA Club would like to share our latest fundraiser. 
We are selling t-shirts to support three worthy causes.
First, in honor of Kobe and Gianna Bryant. The tragic loss of all those on the helicopter has been felt in our community. Proceeds will be donated to the Mamba On Three and the Mamba and Mambacita Foundations.
Second, to help support Australia. The fire season this year has been particularly devastating. A portion of the funds will be sent directly to the State Fire Brigades of New South Wales and Victoria. These firefighters are mostly volunteers. 
Third, to celebrate National Athletic Training Month and bring awareness to the need of certified athletic trainers in all high schools across Los Angeles Unified and California. Additionally students from the Venice High School Sports Medicine Team will be traveling to Sacramento with Mr. Griego and Ms. Farrell to lobby lawmakers to improve student athlete safety across California.
Please visit to place an order before February 25. Also please feel free to share this link with anyone you might know who would support our causes.
