South Orangetown Central School District

Athletic Trainer Jess Lappe

“From Head to Toe” is the 2024 theme for National Athletic Training Month, which celebrates the importance of athletic trainers. SOCSD’s Head Athletic Trainer Jessica Lappe supports all of our athletes across grades 7-12 by ensuring they’re healthy and safe both on and off the field.

Lappe works with athletes to help them prevent and treat injuries as well as promote overall wellness. “One of my purposes is to be there for people in need. To be a source of strength and empowerment as best that I can,” explained Lappe. “It is something I have guided my life by. Athletic training is a career that fits beautifully into that purpose.”

Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics Bill Pilla said, “Jess Lappe is so much more than just a great athletic trainer. She is the heart and soul of our department, and we are so lucky to have her in South Orangetown!”

Thank you for all that you do for our athletes, Jess!
