We are committed to protecting our student athletes’ health and safety through an athletic training program focused on the prevention, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries.

Located in our athletic center, our training room is equipped with a taping area, three treatment tables, and numerous therapeutic tools and modalities. All treatments, evaluations, diagnoses, and rehabilitation techniques are based on current, evidence-based research.

All students have access to services provided by our athletic trainer. Our student athletes are required to report all injuries as soon as possible to the athletic trainer, as immediate care and treatment are crucial for a full return to sport participation. Following a complete evaluation, the athletic trainer will make necessary recommendations for treatment.

Our concussion protocol follows the recommendations of the most recent position statements on concussion in sport, including from the American Medical Society (2019) and the Berlin consensus statement from the 5th International Conference on Concussion in Sport (2017). We offer baseline concussion testing on par with that offered at NCAA Division I colleges and universities. Baseline and post-injury concussion tests include the Sideline Concussion Assessment Tool version 5 (SCAT5), King-Devick test, and the vestibular ocular motor screening tool (VOMS).
