Athletic Training

Our athletic trainers and clinical staff take a team approach to provide on-site training for professional, college, high school, club, and youth sports athletes.

What is athletic training?

Our Athletic Training Outreach Program provides professional health care services to professional sports, colleges, high schools, club sports and various youth sports throughout the country. Our non-traditional athletic training model allows us to provide optimal, proactive, and efficient care to injured athletes by utilizing a combined sports medicine team approach. Our athletic trainers and clinical staff work closely together and are committed to providing superior sports medicine services.

Benefits of an athletic trainer

Our athletic trainers also work closely with local physicians and coaches within your organization and/or institution to tailor each program to best fulfill your sports medicine needs. Our staff excels at both the art and science of care. They’ve been trained in the latest scientific information available. In addition, we pride ourselves on providing care and customer service that exceeds the overall expectations of our athletes, parents, physicians, and administrations, resulting in an athletic trainer to patient experience like no other.
