Should I see my schools athletic trainer today?

Patient : I'm a junior in hichschool and am involved in marching band. I'm also 17. Over the weekend I went to a friends house for a airsoft fight and as I was running through their woods I tried to turn. my foot turned sideways but my ankle and leg went straight which sent pain through my ankle and i couldnt put weight on it for awhile. It's now monday and it still hurts to walk on and to rotate my leg. My best friend says I should see our highschools athletic trainer today. What are your thoughts?
