Ms. Monika Young, MS, LAT, ATC
Ms. Monika officially joined the Bogota Athletics staff in August 2018. However, Ms. Monika is not a new face on the Bogota sidelines. She served as the VERY FIRST athletic trainer for over a year, in conjunction with JAG Physical Therapy and the New York Giants Grant, in the Fall 2015- Winter 2017 seasons. During that time, Ms. Monika was proud to witness Bogota Lady Bucs win TWO Group 1 State and Sectional Championships (2015 & 2016), Boys Cross Country Group 1 State Titles, and Boy Basketball Sectional Champions (2016).
Ms. Monika graduated with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology from the University of Maryland in 2009. Following completion of her master's degree in athletic training from Seton Hall University in 2014, Ms. Monika worked at JAG Phyical Therapy in Union, NJ. In addition to her clinical responsibilities at JAG, Ms. Monika worked per diem for New York Red Bulls Academy and Performance Physical Therpay and Sports Performance. In 2015, JAG coupled with the New York Giants Grant to supply an athletic trainer in every high school, which led to Ms. Monika's position at Bogota Jr./Sr. High School. Ms. Monika took a brief hiatus from Bogota in 2017 to join the athletic training staff at Temple University in Philadelphia until the summer of 2018. While at Temple, Ms. Monika primarily worked with the women's soccer team (Hey TUWS!).
Ms. Monika returns to continue her reign as Bogota's [FIRST] Athletic Trainer. She is very delighted to be back and hopes to help Bogota athletes exceed beyond their wildest expectation and aspirations on and off of the playing field.
Ms. Monika has been a board certified athletic trainer and State of New Jersey Athletic Trainer license since 2014.
