The one-day Student Athletic Trainer Aide Workshop is hosted by the Children’s Sports Medicine Program and held at the Children's Office Park. This workshop allows students to gain and practice new skills, facilitating learning through both lectures and hands-on experience.
This workshop allows students to learn and practice new skills, with time dedicated to both lectures and hands-on experience. Upon completing this workshop, students will return to their schools more confident and better able to provide assistance to their high school’s certified athletic trainer.
Students may choose from one of two workshop sessions depending on their level of experience. The introductory track is for those wanting to learn more about the profession. No previous training experience is necessary. The advanced track, designed for students with some prior training experience, offers a more in-depth look at athletic training concepts.
