Athletic Training is the prevention, evaluation, treatment, management, and rehabilitation of athletic-related injuries and illnesses by a BOC (Board of Certification) certified health care professional. The Recreation and Wellness Center offers free athletic training services to students.
An athletic trainer is directly responsible for all phases of healthcare in an athletic environment. It includes prevention, first aid, injury evaluation, and management of athletic injuries. RWC athletic trainers can also design and supervise a short-term rehabilitation program that can facilitate safe and expeditious return-to-play (or return-to-learn) for an athlete.
If you need emergency medical assistance or care, please dial 9-1-1.
