What is Athletic Training?

Athletic Trainers (ATs) are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, and therapeutic rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. They are required to attain and maintain both a certification and a license in the state in which they work.

Sport Clubs and Athletic Training

Sport Club athletes have the ability to schedule appointments to be evaluated by an athletic trainer. Initial evaluations are typically scheduled for one hour time slots in order to provide adequate time for the diagnosis and potential start of a therapeutic rehabilitation program. Athletes needing more than one treatment session will be scheduled for additional 30 minute time slots according to the rehabilitation plan created by the athletic trainers.

Athletic trainers provide home event coverage for all sport clubs deemed high risk (Rugby, Soccer, Lacrosse, Ice Hockey, Wrestling, Competitive Cheerleading, Ultimate Frisbee tournaments containing more than five teams). Moderate and low risk sport clubs have the ability to request ATs for large tournaments or events. Club presidents can do this by contacting their liaison. Based upon the events scheduled for the date of the event, the athletic training staff will decide if the availability allows for coverage to be provided. The ATs are unable to cover practices due to providing coverage to intramural sports throughout the week.

If an athlete suffers an injury at practice, a competitive sports supervisor should be contacted. In the case of a severe emergency, 911 should be called.
