Athletic Training

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

Injury evaluation/treatment sessions – If you are injured while participating in a sport club practice or game you are able to make appointments with an Athletic Trainer for 30-45 minute evaluation and/or rehabilitation sessions free of charge. Click "Make an Appointment" above to get started.

Athletic Trainers provide home event coverage for all on campus sport clubs deemed high risk. 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.

Cancellation/No-Show Policy

Appointments canceled BEFORE 24 hours the day before scheduled appointment may be rescheduled, free of charge, within 30 days of the original appointment.

Appointments canceled AFTER 24 hours the day before scheduled appointment will be assessed a $20 charge. Appointment may be rescheduled within 30 days of the original appointment.

Tardiness (less than 15 minutes) to a session will result in shorter Athletic Training appointments. At or after 15 minutes, the appointment would be considered a no-show and assessed a $20 cancellation/no show charge.

After two cancellations made after 1 p.m. the day before scheduled appointment and/or no-shows in the same semester, patients will not be allowed to schedule appointments for 30 days.

Open Clinic

As of the Spring 2022 semester, the Athletic Trainers will be offering Open Clinic sessions for drop in visits without appointment for sport club athletes only. Sessions will be offered during Fall and Spring semesters on a first-come first-served basis. The Athletic Training staff will have full discretion of services provided during these times. Common services provided may include minor injury evaluations or rehab, concussion management, and taping/bracing assistance. Open Clinic occurs Monday-Thursday beginning at 8:00pm. The times which Open Clinic ends vary, but it is most often between 9:30pm-11:00pm.
