Thanks to the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center for their continued support of the Student Athletic Trainer Camp

The University of Kentucky Athletic Training Camp Staff invites you to join us for an exciting, yet educational experience in learning about athletic training. This camp is designed for high school students interested in gaining skills as student athletic trainers. The program will address the current concepts in Sports Medicine with presentations provided by various certified athletic trainers. Each day will consist of lectures, demonstrations and laboratory sessions with emphasis on prevention, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. We look forward to seeing you at camp. — University of Kentucky Athletic Training Staff


Student athletic trainers are a vital part of the sports medicine team. Our goal is to introduce the high school student to the field of athletic training/sports medicine through presentations, lectures, and hands-on labs provided by a variety of 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 will learn about important record keeping, athletic training room necessities, and game procedures. We'll also have discussions and explore athletic training and other sports medicine careers. By attending this camp, the high school student who has little or no previous athletic training experience will build their confidence and improve their athletic training ability. An emphasis will be placed each day on the prevention, recognition, treatment, and rehabilitation of common athletic injuries. The camper will be introduced to a cadaver lab and increase their awareness of emergency procedures and heat illness. The program will address the current concepts in sports medicine.
