Objectives

Student athletic trainers are a vital part of the sports medicine field. Our goal is to expose the high school student to the field of athletic training/sports medicine through presentations, lectures and hands-on labs provided by various certified athletic trainers. At camp the student will learn about the anatomy in regards to muscles and bone structure, taping/treatment of common athletic injuries and basic injury evaluation. The camper would learn about vital record keeping, athletic training room necessities, game procedures and have light discussion and exposure on athletic training and other sports medicine careers. Through the camp the high school student who has little or no previous athletic training experience will build their athletic training ability. An emphasis will be placed each day on the prevention, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. The student will be introduced to a cadaver lab and increase their awareness of emergency procedures/heat illness. The program will address the current concepts in Sports Medicine.
